You can't seriously imply that I need to find these examples for you--I didn't make that comment to start a debate over the veracity, it's just something I've noticed. Maybe you've become immune from lurking through ATS for so long?

Maybe.



It was a genuine query though, I've only heard it a couple of times.

The most current trending appeal-to-emotion argument is in reference to MMR and, if you don't vaccinate someone or something, that you prefer the death of that individual and others, even thought the percentage of Americans who contract the disease and die from it is less than 0.002%.

Things like that.

Yep good one, slipped my mind, I've heard that type of argument a few times.

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.


Damn right! I think it's about time that we put children before trucks.
