Scott Adams is a funny guy, but his fallacies suck. See Here.NO HOLDS BARRED CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE FALLACIES
The point of the game is to demonstrate your superior reasoning skills through identifying the fallacies present in another person's statement, and to generate a fallacious statement of your own to challenge your lesser peers.RULES OF THE GAME
1. I will start off with a statement containing logical fallacy.
2. A person will identify the fallacy in the statement preferably with an explanation.
3. The person who identified the fallacy will submit a statement containing a fallacy for others to guess at.
4. And on, and on, ad nauseum...EXAMPLEPerson 1:I am right because my father told me so.Person 2:
That is an argument from authority. Your father has nothing to do with the truth of your statement.I am right because I am smarter than you. I must be smarter than you, because I am right.Person 3:
That is circular reasoning, a tautology. The two statements affirm one another, regardless of the truth of either or both statements.You must agree with me because I have been wrong so many times in the past that being wrong again will tear me apart.
So I'll start!You're either with us, or you're against us!
