RE: 10 most common fallacies?
I really like the natural fallacy, I'm pretty quick to point out wild almonds. They'd kill yah Thumbsup

Turns out, most plants don't want to be eaten so they developed all kinds of niffy chemistry that can kill, make you sick, or just poop indefinitely. what funNo
edit: oh I see you meant common religious ones. It might be a stretch but it could work, the world was made for them after all.

My list so far contains the following
God of the Gaps, Special Pleading, Strawman, False Clause, Appeal to Emotion, Burden of Proof, Texas Sharp Shooter, No True Scotsman, Personal Incredulity, and Begging the question.

These I think are the top 10 most common fallacies and I wish to discuss each one. Do you guys think this may be accurate enough? What would you say is the top 10 most common fallacies given by the religious to defend or promote their religion or beliefs?

I would like to hear your thoughts on this.


I am also thinking of swapping one out for argumentum ad baculum.

Stolen concept fallacy. Every argument they present for their god commits this fallacy.

Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. - Ayn Rand.

Circulus in probando, i.e., circular logic, is number one.

+1 on the list as it stands and also agree with Szuchow. I get so pissed at the Right Wing Watch articles and all the slippery slope shenanigans that they throw around. It makes me sick. Thank god (oops) Ben Carson will be out of the presidential race since the core of his experienced staff defected. Not that he would have a snow ball's chance in hell anyway but it's just one more dumb f*ck out of the way. Hobo

I'd feel better about that if I didn't have a sense of the people he was getting out of the way of.

How do you know these particular 10 are the 'top 10'?

Is this a prepositional fallacy of false authority? There is a lot of that one about.

"I love the term magic realism. It's about expanding how you see the world. I think we live in an age where we're just hammered to think this is what the world is. Everything's saying 'That's the world.' And it's not the world. The world is a million possible things." - TG

Based on the arguments given by most of the apologists and arguments from others. Plus, with checking it against what others think, I am comparing it to the opinions of others to double check it and back it up with evidence.
