Marvel Multiverse: Deadpool (Earth-616)

Riley Sproul Leave a Comment

Deadpool, The Merc With A Mouth, Wade Wilson, or my personal favorite; “The Regenerating Degenerate”. Arguably the most resilient individual of the Marvel Universe, Senior ‘Pool started as a simple man. One with near-super human skill with virtually all lethal weapons (including the difficult to master Chimichanga) but a mortal …

As specific videos, pictures, and theories are in rather large numbers, I’ll mainly be addressing what I’ve found to be the best arguments for and against Bigfoot’s existence.

They’re Logically Fallacious! Appeal To Probability

Riley Sproul Leave a Comment

Appeal To Probability: (a.k.a. appeal to possibility) Another formal fallacy; the idea that simply because something is likely to happen, it therefore will happen. Although something is probabilistic-ally the case, does not mean it is a proven fact. However, one can usually act on statistical information with a relative level of …

They’re Logically Fallacious! Misleading Vividness

Riley Sproul 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 …

Also, this topic is a personal one to me, so there are also some ‘fun facts about the author‘ included near the end. This topic differs from what I …

They’re Logically Fallacious! Unfalsifiability

Riley Sproul 2 Comments

Unfalsifiability: (a.k.a. untestibility) An informal fallacy; when a statement is asserted that is theoretically or practically impossible to test. 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. And, when treated appropriately, and lead …

They’re Logically Fallacious! Weak Analogy

Riley Sproul Leave a Comment

Weak Analogy: (a.k.a. faulty analogy, argument from spurious similarity) An informal fallacy; in which one uses an analogy to make ones point, but the analogy does not suitably fit the point attempting to be made. This fallacy is sometimes used with the conscious intent to trick the other party, as …
