Transcript of Logical Fallacies
This fallacy is committed when a person draws a conclusion about a population based on a sample that is not large enough. Hasty Generalization You said that because an authority thinks something, it must therefore be true.
Note: this fallacy should not be used to dismiss the claims of experts. Appeal to Authority Example: "93% of scientists are atheists" this really does nothing to show that atheism is true. Example: After Will said that we should put more money into health and education, Warren responded by saying that he was surprised that Will hates our country so much that he wants to leave it defenceless by cutting military spending. Don't be fooled! Why bother to learn more about logic and arguments? You attempted to manipulate an emotional response(fear, envy, hatred, pity, pride,etc) in place of a valid or compelling argument. Appeal to Emotion When you create logically unsound arguments, you are much less likely to convince people that you have a valid point to make, or get them to agree with you. Even if they aren't familiar with logic, many people will realize that there is something wrong with some fallacious arguments without being able to identify the fallacy involved.
