Your Fallacies:
  1. Nirvana Fallacy (wiki): When solutions to problems are rejected because they are not perfect.
  2. Slippery Slope Fallacy (wiki): Asserting that a relatively small first step inevitably leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant impact.
  3. Association Fallacy (wiki): Arguing that because two things share a property they are the same. Commonly guilt by association or honor by association.
  4. Straw man (wiki): An argument based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.
  5. 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.
  6. False Dilemma (wiki): Two alternative statements are held to be the only possible options, when in reality there are more.
  7. 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).
  8. Appeal to Probability (wiki): Assumes that because something is likely to happen, it is inevitable that it will happen.
  9. Appeal to Novelty (wiki): Where a proposal is claimed to be superior or better solely because it is new or modern.
  10. Chronological Snobbery (wiki): Where a thesis is deemed incorrect because it was commonly held when something else, clearly false, was also commonly held.
  11. 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.
  12. Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy (wiki): Improperly asserting a cause to explain a cluster of data that the larger data set does not support.
  13. Dodge the question (basically free): Lets talk about something else.
  14. False Analogy (wiki): An argument by analogy in which the analogy is poorly suited.
  15. Fallacy fallacy (wiki): Assumes that if an argument for some conclusion is fallacious, then the conclusion itself is false.
  16. 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).
  17. Abusive Fallacy (wiki): A type of ad hominem when it turns into name-calling rather than arguing about the originally proposed argument.
  18. 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.
  19. 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. ).
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Retrospective Determinism (wiki): The argument that because some event has occurred, its occurrence must have been inevitable beforehand.
  25. Fallacy of Composition (wiki): Assuming that something true of part of a whole must also be true of the whole.
