Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

I had occasion today to pay a visit to one of the websites on our sidebar: The Fallacy Files. It’s one-stop shopping for examples of logical fallacies; I hadn’t visited for a while, and I’m glad to see it’s still in business. Even more comprehensive than our political comment-threads, I think.

  3. I don’t know who “they” are, but I wouldn’t allow some other man to modulate my ponens into his tollens. That wouldn’t be kosher.

    Big Henry, don’t be so sure about what’s kosher. At least if you talk to a rabbi in one of the “liberal” branches of the religion.
