Your Fallacies:
  1. 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.
  2. Fallacy of Composition (wiki): Assuming that something true of part of a whole must also be true of the whole.
  3. Slippery Slope Fallacy (wiki): Asserting that a relatively small first step inevitably leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant impact.
  4. False Analogy (wiki): An argument by analogy in which the analogy is poorly suited.
  5. Appeal to Novelty (wiki): Where a proposal is claimed to be superior or better solely because it is new or modern.
  6. Cum hoc ergo propter hoc (wiki): A faulty assumption that correlation between two variables implies that one causes the other.
  7. 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.
  8. Appeal to Probability (wiki): Assumes that because something is likely to happen, it is inevitable that it will happen.
  9. Retrospective Determinism (wiki): The argument that because some event has occurred, its occurrence must have been inevitable beforehand.
  10. Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy (wiki): Improperly asserting a cause to explain a cluster of data that the larger data set does not support.
  11. Genetic Fallacy (wiki): Where a conclusion is suggested based solely on something or someone's origin rather than its current meaning or context.
  12. Straw man (wiki): An argument based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.
  13. Dodge the question (basically free): Lets talk about something else.
  14. 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.
  15. Argumentum ad Populum (wiki): Where a proposition is claimed to be true or good solely because many people believe it to be so.
  16. Poisoning the well (wiki): A type of ad hominem where adverse information about a target is presented with the intention of discrediting everything that the target person says.
  17. Argument from Silence (wiki): A conclusion based on silence or lack of contrary evidence (includes shifting the burden of proof).
  18. Inconsistent Comparison (wiki): Where different methods of comparison are used, leaving one with a false impression of the whole comparison.
  19. Hasty Generalization (wiki): Basing a broad conclusion on a small sample.
  20. Appeal to Tradition (wiki): A conclusion supported solely because it has long been held to be true.
  21. 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.
  22. Appeal to Consequences (wiki): The conclusion is supported by a premise that asserts positive or negative consequences from some course of action (If P, then Q will occur. Q is desirable. Therefore, P is true. ).
  23. Chronological Snobbery (wiki): Where a thesis is deemed incorrect because it was commonly held when something else, clearly false, was also commonly held.
  24. 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.
  25. Association Fallacy (wiki): Arguing that because two things share a property they are the same. Commonly guilt by association or honor by association.
