Logical fallacies

More and more I see people, in person, in print, on the tv, using and believing they are right in using logical fallacies. Most of these fall apart when expressed in simple language, but that doesn’t stop the bulk of people believing in them for their own use… There are lots of good solid websites that list the details, with easy to follow examples. This is the sort of stuff they should teach a school (rather than spending six weeks on ‘the middle ages’ or some such thing) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacies http://www.don-lindsay-archive.org/skeptic/arguments.html
