PostSubject: Philosophy - Fallacies and critical thinking   Mon Jul 04, 2016 10:34 pm

Greetings. We are the messengers of the founding Anonymous. The purpose of this group is to bring everyone together and get to the bottom of all issues that divide us against each other. It is the fire of constructive debate that burns away all that is false. We measure our values, principles and knowledge at the table, to discover that which holds weight and that which does not. We must leave ego, title and personal attachment to beliefs at the door. We must be prepared to be wrong in our arguments and beliefs at all times, and to be receptive to that, to learn from that. Should we engage with the right intentions, there is no way to lose. Even if we lose a battle, we still gain critical knowledge and insight into what points we need to make and how to make them. While the heat of the fire may burn the ego, it purifies and reinforces all that is true. Be courageous, brave the fire and by putting our arguments against each other, we can all discover the truth and see it with our own eyes. No more false unity in the name of impotent new ideas with no meaning. The old ways are returning. The truth will not be proclaimed, but revealed and prove itself in the fires of Consensus. Only by forging and proving the truth in these fires, can we truly be united on common ground in a way never seen before.

A list of common mistakes people make.

Ad hominem.
This is one of the reasons why we must deal with arguments and not engage in personal attacks. Do not to confuse 'consensus group think' with 'consensus decision making'.

This is one of the reasons why we must let others have a chance to speak for themselves, and not speak falsely in their name while censoring them.

Ad populum.
This is one of the reasons why we must not confuse consensus group think with consensus decision making and the idea of Consensus with a capital C. Majority vote does not make something true or moral. Instead, we must engage and resolve all arguments to determine their value and distinguish true from false.

Red herring.
This is one of the reasons we must stick to the point and be clear about what we are saying, and not divert with irrelevant points.

Appeal to authority.
This is one of the reasons why we must argue without title or hierarchy. It is irrelevant who a person is.

Loaded Question.
This is one of the reasons why we must back up the accusation we make, be sure to have our information right before we speak, and not take shortcuts with assumptions. Example, 'Since only fools think the sky is blue, do you think Tigers are stronger than Lions?'.
