The 10 Commandments Of Logic

  1. Thou shall not attack the person’s character, only attack the argument. (Ad Hominem).
  2. Thou shall not misrepresent or exaggerate a person’s argument in order to make them easier to attack. (Straw man fallacy).
  3. Thou shall not use small numbers to represent the whole. (Hasty generalization).
  4. Thou Shall not argue thy position by assuming one of its premises is true. (Begging the question).
  5. Thou shall not claim that because something occurred before the event, it must be the cause. (Post Hoc/False cause).
  6. Thou shall not reduce the argument down to (only) two possibilities. (False dichotomy)
  7. Thou shall not argue that because of our ignorance, that because the claim has not been proved to be true, claim must be false or vice versa. (Ad ignorantum)
  8. Thou shall not lay the burden of proof onto him that is questioning the claim. (Burden of proof reversal).
  9. Thou shall not assume “this” follows “that” when it has no logical connection. (Non sequitur).
  10. Thou shall not claim that because a premise is popular, therefore it must be true. (Bandwagon fallacy).
