Want to help make the world a slightly better place?
… at no cost and very little effort?
Post a link to a list of logical fallacies in FB comments whenever commentors use logical fallacies.
I think the world’ll be a much better place when everyone is well versed in logical fallacies, so that we can avoid using them and we can call others out when they use them.
Even better is to identify the fallacy being used.
Let’s see if we can start a trend.
We need a more loving world, but if we can’t get that I’ll settle for a more logical world.
Here are a list of websites providing a list of logical fallacies.
And for all the people who want to poo poo a link from wikipedia:
Just because wikipedia is not a perfect source doesn’t mean that it is a bad source… and it certainly doesn’t mean that some other website that you’ve never heard of is a better source!
Wikipedia has more scrutiny and more editors than just about any other website and therefore, with few exceptions, it’s information is about as trustworthy as you’re ever going to get on the internet.
It may not be perfect… but its a very good place to start.
