Bulverism: another common fallacy!

from the wiki:

You must show that a man is wrong before you start explaining why he is wrong. The modern method is to assume without discussion that he is wrong and then distract his attention from this (the only real issue) by busily explaining how he became so silly. - C.S. Lewis (emphasis in original)

This fallacy is prevalent, i fear. "you only believe that because you're a man" - and "it is therefore untrue"


My earlier post re: logic is a construct of satan are panning out. perhaps i'll invoke him tonight and ask him about it.
