Five Common Fallacies
Today in my video I went over five different fallacies people use in arguments.
Name calling in a sense. Attack your foe’s reputation in order to dismiss their claims. Often used when the other side is angry.
Countered by calming down the other person. Any other attempts of reason will be lost to the other person.
An argument that uses its conclusion as the premise.
Countered by demanding more evidence.
A smokescreen used to distract you from the main argument.
Countered by staying focused on the main argument.
By allowing A then B will happen and something really bad will happen if we give any ground to A.
Point out that we have the means and choice to exercise restraint on the conditions considered.
Saying that the opposing view agrees with another unrelated idea that is easier to attack than the main idea.
One way to counter this is to say that A is not necessarily coherent with B.
