Riley Sproul Ideas, Logical Fallacies 1 Comment

Misleading Vividness: (a.k.a. anecdotal fallacy) As promised, the first formal fallacy: Where one uses a personal story as evidence for a claim. As described in the link, formal fallacies are non sequiturs; meaning they hold no logical bearing on the argument at hand. I think of them as simply shouting something totally irrelevant …

An unstable hypothesis is one that science and logic cannot address, and one from which no empiric information can arise. These are often fun for thought-experiments however.
