  13. Factually Inaccurate (basically free): That's not true.
  14. 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. ).
  15. Appeal to Probability (wiki): Assumes that because something is likely to happen, it is inevitable that it will happen.
  16. Genetic Fallacy (wiki): Where a conclusion is suggested based solely on something or someone's origin rather than its current meaning or context.

  18. 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.
  19. Argumentum ad Populum (wiki): Where a proposition is claimed to be true or good solely because many people believe it to be so.
  20. False Dilemma (wiki): Two alternative statements are held to be the only possible options, when in reality there are more.
  21. 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.
