Fallacies Fallacy 1: On His Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

My erections are at a healthier state from using VolumePills™, as from before to now they are a lot stronger and healthier."

WHY THIS IS a FALLACY: This is begging the question because the writer (assuming a real person actually wrote that testimonial) is expecting the reader to accept on faith that this is true, without any way to check its validity. It is also an appeal to ignorance because very few men in the general population have any scientific or medical knowledge about penis enlargement, sperm enhancement, etc.

FALLACY #4 (a): The Ku Klux Klan KKK (on its Web site) asserts that the U.S. should "Abolish all anti-gun laws and encourage every adult to own a weapon." Further, the KKK asserts that, "The cure for crime in America is not take guns off the streets but to put more guns on the streets."

WHY THIS IS a FALLACY: This is farcical, of course, but in terms of "fallacy" this misses the point: giving everyone a gun cannot possibly be a logical answer to lowering the crime rate; if the goal is to lower the crime rate, then there are numerous ways to go about that through education, etc. FALLACY #4 (b): The KKK says "The Bible condemns homosexual activity..." therefore there should be "...a national law against...homosexuality." WHY THIS IS a FALLACY: This (among other fallacies) is a false cause: simply because the Bible asserts something doesn't make that issue valid in 2007. The stories in the Bible also embrace slavery (often) in the Old Testament; should America then go back to buying slaves to tend our gardens and clean our houses?
