Maybe it wasn't part of your "line of reasoning". But when you drop "Did I mention he's a hack?" in the middle of your arguement, do you expect a reasonable person to believe that it wasn't part of your arguement?
- My "attack" on Nate was not an ad hominem. It was an insult and nothing more -- it never entered my line of reasoning.
If they were phrased as "propositions", which they weren't.
- Uhh... yeah, both illustrations of why propositions are typically defined as statements that can be true or false.
Ad Hominem and false assumption. Next week you can start your lesson with Professor Tucker.I mean, if you don't even know what a proposition is -- one of the most basic concepts in logic -- I can't see why anyone would seriously consider anything you have to say on the subject of fallacies.
Now THAT'S an ad hominem!
(and here's to hoping it comes across in the good-natured sort-of-way I intended -- note the smilies)
Hope to get to the rest tonight and before I leave for a four day trip to MiddleofKnowhere, Utah.
It has. I do enjoy debate with people with some wit and aren't too overly serious.
