Thou Shalt Not Commit Logical Fallacies

Let's face it: we all tend to commit logical fallacies on a regular basis. This happens frequently as we discuss issues of deep importance to us like, say, the church. When emotions sneak into arguments, logic has a way of flying out the window and fallacies thrive. Well, I've stumbled upon a website that can help us with this problem. Your Logical Fallacy Is provides succinct definitions and descriptions of twenty-four of the most common logical fallacies. We would all do well to be aware of the various fallacies, search them out in our own thinking, and dare to make changes where needed. I hope I dare.

Thanks to Twenty-Two Words for sharing the link.

Nice chart. I'll save this. I didn't take logic in college.
