Logic 101 – a nifty link

October 13, 2011 3 comments

What`s a straw-man anyway?! And what does smoked herring have to do with anything? Band wagons, slippery slopes, what gives?!

If you’ve been asking yourself ¬†any of the above questions, you might find the following link pretty useful. It lists and explains some of the most common errors in argumentation, most of which are often times found in theist discourse. Without further ado, I give you Logical Fallacies:

http://www.logicalfallacies.info/

The website gives you all the tools you need to successfully detect and counter your opponent’s false argument using logic and reason.

In closing, inquiring minds want to know: when is the last time someone used a fallacy to try and win an argument with you? Share your stories in the comment section below.

Later edit: Romanian readers can find a comprehensive list of logical fallacies in Romanian here
