Extra Credit Opportunity

Here’s our homemade compilation of bad arguments.

Thou Shall Denounce These Fallacies! Worksheet

If you’re looking for some extra credit, I’ll offer up to ten points for completing this worksheet, provided you get at least 80% correct.

For each example, identify the fallacy at work and briefly explain it in the context of the example. Note that sometimes more than one fallacy may be present, and often, some of the premises of the argument will be left unstated because arguments in the real-world often appear in enthymemic form.

Burn the witches!*

By “burn” I mean identify, and by “witches” I mean fallacies.
