I read it.
It was one long critter...
If your intended emphasis is strictly to explain logic, then I recommend using non-political/non-religious examples.
Otherwise, many readers won’t get past that; believing the example is the message, as opposed to understanding that the explanation of logic was the message.
Many readers can’t handle simultaneous concepts… Just a thought.
Yeah, I felt that might be an issue. I ended up using a lot of creationist examples because, quite frankly, they make them so often.
I tried as best I could to use "balanced" fallacies. I wanted people to be aware that people use these in real life, not just in some obvious way.

What are your best examples to easily identify errors of logic and faulty reasoning?Whether it's false cause, circular reasoning, faulty analogies, etc., logic seems to elude all of us in our discussions. We can often recognize that an argument doesn't make sense, but often we aren't able to...
