‘Thou shalt not commit logical fallacies’

Anyone with an interest in science is probably familiar with the logical fallacies so widely used by the touters of quackery, pseudoscience and woo. I have written about a number of them in the context of ‘running’ and there are a lot more to come. I recently came across this poster that summarizes the key argumentative fallacies perfectly:

logicalfallacy

This poster needs to be hung everywhere to make the world a more rational place. I have got one; its going to hang in the girls room when they are old enough to read it (they only 6 at the moment); so they can tell the difference between what is really true and what is spun BS.

You can get it from Zazzle: USA | Australia | United Kingdom | Canada | Japan | Germany | Spain | France | New Zealand | Netherlands | Portugal | Brazil | Belgium |

As always, I go where the evidence takes me until convinced otherwise.
