I thought this info-graphic should be in this forum as it seems apropos in this space. I did not see it posted so If my search ability was not up to the task it is easy for mods to move it wear more appropriate.

Thanks for adding the resource. Where I found it was somewhat removed from the source but was so nicely done I had to share it here.

You're welcome - it is good source - one that is worth bookmarking for future reference.

This is great. We could play 'ATS Bingo' looking through the threads and identifying the logical fallacies. They're rampant here.

The thread defenders would merely state that these logical fallacies are an NWO conspiracy and we are all sheepies, we are all sheepies, we are all sheepies ............

Seen a lot of these here.


I've also seen these accusations thrown at people who weren't actually doing so...

What would that type fallacy be called?

Here is another link with a few more:

A lot of the fallacies are extensions of a basic fallacy or a combination of several. They are good to know.

We are being manipulated, knowing common logic fallacies helps shedding some light on all the BS.

pay attention the "Appeal to Emotion" one, as that is used on ATS a LOT.

Very well done, although incomplete.

For instance, we could add, what I call Semantic Fallacy where a very narrow definition of terms is applied to an argument.

An example of this would be to say that this infographic actually portrays fallacies of reason, rather than fallacies of logic (referring to a definition of logic in the Boolean sense).

Love when people use that one.

I usually only hear that one when someone brings up children...

A God forbid someone is "fallacious" enough to consider the children...




Maybe you have other examples I haven't seen.

Thanks for this, it actually ought to be pinned-stickied at the top of each forum section!! Took my own "nutty" over this here....www.abovetopsecret.com...

Can't see how it changes much tho....inept debaters are still inept debaters.....
They are the LEAST likely to apply this to themselves.

Thanks for trying to enlighten folks, this thread needs bumped once a day for like a year or two!!

Sorry you lost me on this one SR?

I am laughing at the thought of a competition on ATS to spot the Logical fallacies in a thread. Make individual tiles from the info-graphic icons for the various fallacies listed. Include those tiles graphics along with the quote they refer to in the OP. You might have created the beginning of a spontaneous comment layer that is member supported.

Just a fallacy. Or an error/mistake by someone who did not comprehend the logical fallacy properly. Some would say they have a "problem" with reading comprehension, but they would be allowing their emotions to cloud their judgement since they were probably the target of the error or were angered by it, because, in truth, we are all susceptible to misinterpretations, misunderstandings, etc. Its a part of the human experience. We are not computers after all.

None of this is meant to be directed toward you in particular. I'm just thinking aloud here. Something I am often guilty of doing here at ATS. I find that it's therapeutic and okay as long as I am on topic.

OP: Thanks for sharing bud! When I finished reading it, I thought: "well THAT doesnt leave me too many options now does it??" Lol they took away all of my favorite toys! Just kidding hehe XD
