I thought I'd post this to aid in the proper debating of topics. It's an index of logical fallacies.

www.nizkor.org...

I figured that there were so many instances in debates that I've had where illogical conclusions are being made, but I had no direct way to call them on it. So, for the good of ATS, and it's members, here you go.

I'm glad to see this index getting use. Ignorant_ape used it very well in a discussion regarding the existance of Saturn pics here. And I made some use of it here.

I just wanteed to bump this up to help people identify some of the flawed logic that's thrown around this board so easily. It's all part of my quest for an idiot free America.

Informal fallacies was one of my favorites areas of study when I was covering logic for my degree. Infinitely useful, and fun, too! I think one of the most important things we can take from studies of informal logic is recognizing it in ourselves and NOT just in others!

That seems really interesting.

But just to get this straight, that site lists 42 techniques that may be used to make you believe an argument>?

Good point. I've since been going over recent posts and looking for these logical fallacies in my own points (I've found one or two, and usually past the point where I refuse to accept defeat).

Still, if everyone read it it would be a great step in DI

Thanks for this, im sure that this will come in handy in my engineering course when having to make arguements and to back them up.
