This article reminds me of a problem on our quiz in Math 107 on logical fallacy.
Here is another one if you are in the mood of finding logical fallacies. It is a true conversation I had with my husband Alan.
Our tap has two settings and one of them has a particularly high pitch when the water is running. I didn’t like the high pitch noise and was in the mood of teasing Alan, so I said:” I don’t like that high pitch noise, but dolphins are fine with it. You are fine with it too, so you are a dolphin!”
Of course, Alan is not a dolphin. Can you point out the logical fallacy in the argument?
Here is another logical fallacy called the Paradox of ravens. It certainly sounds funny at first glance. Try to resolve it?
