Your Fallacies:
  1. Appeal to Flattery (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made due to the use of flattery to gather support.
  2. Moving the Goalposts (wiki): Argument in which evidence presented in response to a specific claim is dismissed and some other (often greater) evidence is demanded.
  3. Wishful Thinking (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where a decision is made according to what might be pleasing to imagine, rather than according to evidence or reason.
  4. Appeal to Accomplishment (wiki): Where an assertion is deemed true or false based on the accomplishments of the proposer.
  5. Argument from Silence (wiki): A conclusion based on silence or lack of contrary evidence (includes shifting the burden of proof).
  6. Appeal to Fear (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made by increasing fear and prejudice towards the opposing side.
  7. Historian's Fallacy (wiki): Occurs when one assumes that decision makers of the past viewed events from the same perspective and having the same information as those subsequently analyzing the decision.
  8. Appeal to Novelty (wiki): Where a proposal is claimed to be superior or better solely because it is new or modern.
  9. Inconsistent Comparison (wiki): Where different methods of comparison are used, leaving one with a false impression of the whole comparison.
  10. Naturalistic Fallacy (wiki): Attempts to prove a claim about ethics by appealing to a definition of the term -good- in terms of either one or more claims about natural properties.
  11. Hasty Generalization (wiki): Basing a broad conclusion on a small sample.
  12. Appeal to Ridicule (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made by presenting the opponent's argument in a way that makes it appear ridiculous.
  13. Dodge the question (basically free): Lets talk about something else.
  14. Fallacy of Many Questions (wiki): Someone asks a question that presupposes something that has not been proven or accepted by all the people involved (loaded question).
  15. Overwhelming Exception (wiki): An accurate generalization that comes with qualifications which eliminate so many cases that what remains is much less impressive than the initial statement might have led one to assume.
  16. Argumentum ad Populum (wiki): Where a proposition is claimed to be true or good solely because many people believe it to be so.
  17. Association Fallacy (wiki): Arguing that because two things share a property they are the same. Commonly guilt by association or honor by association.
  18. Cum hoc ergo propter hoc (wiki): A faulty assumption that correlation between two variables implies that one causes the other.
  19. Slippery Slope Fallacy (wiki): Asserting that a relatively small first step inevitably leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant impact.
  20. Ludic Fallacy (wiki): The belief that the outcomes of a non-regulated random occurrences can be encapsulated by a statistic; a failure to take into account unknown unknowns in determining the probability of an event's taking place.
  21. Retrospective Determinism (wiki): The argument that because some event has occurred, its occurrence must have been inevitable beforehand.
  22. False Dilemma (wiki): Two alternative statements are held to be the only possible options, when in reality there are more.
  23. False Analogy (wiki): An argument by analogy in which the analogy is poorly suited.
  24. Abusive Fallacy (wiki): A type of ad hominem when it turns into name-calling rather than arguing about the originally proposed argument.
  25. Fallacy fallacy (wiki): Assumes that if an argument for some conclusion is fallacious, then the conclusion itself is false.
