20 Fallacies Most Commonly Used By Dumb People To Win Arguments And How To Recognize Them

Published 2 weeks ago

When people start losing arguments, they often resort to using faulty reasoning, called fallacies. Be it intentional or not, they often turn a reasonable discussion into a childish argument. And with anti-vaxxers and flat-earthers commenting on the internet more and more often, it’s good to know some of the most common logical fallacies to not be surprised when they are used.

Logan Murphy, a San Francisco based illustrator, has created a list of 20 most commonly used logical fallacies so people can learn the tactics used against them. “They took a bit to make but it was a fun project,” said the artist in an interview with Bored Panda. He says he was hoping to hit the sweet spot between humor and truth.

Logan has an associate’s degree in philosophy but says that the inspiration to start this project came from the time he worked in customer service. “Customers use them a lot in an attempt to get things,” explained the artist. “I’m never able to call them on what they are doing, so this started out as me venting!”
