Your Fallacies:
  1. Inconsistent Comparison (wiki): Where different methods of comparison are used, leaving one with a false impression of the whole comparison.
  2. 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.
  3. Cum hoc ergo propter hoc (wiki): A faulty assumption that correlation between two variables implies that one causes the other.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Thought terminating cliche (wiki): A commonly used phrase, sometimes passing as folk wisdom, used to quell cognitive dissonance, conceal lack of thought-entertainment, move onto other topics etc. but in any case, end the debate with a cliche, not a point.
  7. False Analogy (wiki): An argument by analogy in which the analogy is poorly suited.
  8. Cherry Picking (wiki): Act of pointing at individual cases or data that seem to confirm a particular position, while ignoring a significant portion of related cases or data that may contradict that position.
  9. Appeal to Motive (wiki): Where a premise is dismissed by calling into question the motives of its proposer.
  10. Nirvana Fallacy (wiki): When solutions to problems are rejected because they are not perfect.
  11. 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).
  12. Straw man (wiki): An argument based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.
  13. Opinion as Fact (basically free): It is true if I say it enough.
  14. Appeal to Spite (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made through exploiting people's bitterness or spite towards an opposing party.
  15. 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.
  16. Fallacy fallacy (wiki): Assumes that if an argument for some conclusion is fallacious, then the conclusion itself is false.
  17. Special pleading (wiki): Where a proponent of a position attempts to cite something as an exemption to a generally accepted rule or principle without justifying the exemption (includes No True Scotsman).
  18. Appeal to Hypocrisy (wiki): The argument states that a certain position is false or wrong and/or should be disregarded because its proponent fails to act consistently in accordance with that position.
  19. Appeal to Probability (wiki): Assumes that because something is likely to happen, it is inevitable that it will happen.
  20. Misleading Vividness (wiki): Involves describing an occurrence in vivid detail, even if it is an exceptional occurrence, to convince someone that it is a problem.
  21. Appeal to Accomplishment (wiki): Where an assertion is deemed true or false based on the accomplishments of the proposer.
  22. Chronological Snobbery (wiki): Where a thesis is deemed incorrect because it was commonly held when something else, clearly false, was also commonly held.
  23. 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.
  24. Genetic Fallacy (wiki): Where a conclusion is suggested based solely on something or someone's origin rather than its current meaning or context.
