    Logic, Fallacies & the Trivium Method of Critical Thinking: Enhancing Your Mental Anti-Virus

    Logic, Fallacies & the Trivium Method of Critical Thinking: Enhancing Your Mental Anti-Virus

    Intellectual self defense for the awakening of the masses. Understand the methods of sophistry which are utilized to enslave and control the minds of humankind.

    government (govern = control / ment = mental/mind)

    Examples of Fallacies

    1.Inductive Argument

    Premise 1: Most American cats are domestic house cats.
    Premise 2: Bill is an American cat.
    Conclusion: Bill is domestic house cat.

    2.Factual Error

    Columbus is the capital of the United States.

    3.Deductive Fallacy

    Premise 1: If Portland is the capital of Maine, then it is in Maine.
    Premise 2: Portland is in Maine.
    Conclusion: Portland is the capital of Maine.
    (Portland is in Maine, but Augusta is the capital. Portland is the largest city in Maine, though.)

    4.Inductive Fallacy

    Premise 1: Having just arrived in Ohio, I saw a white squirrel.
    Conclusion: All Ohio Squirrels are white.
    (While there are many, many squirrels in Ohio, the white ones are very rare).

    Description of Appeal to Belief

    Appeal to Belief is a fallacy that has this general pattern:

    Most people believe that a claim, X, is true.
    Therefore X is true.
    This line of "reasoning" is fallacious because the fact that many people believe a claim does not, in general, serve as evidence that the claim is true.

    There are, however, some cases when the fact that many people accept a claim as true is an indication that it is true. For example, while you are visiting Maine, you are told by several people that they believe that people older than 16 need to buy a fishing license in order to fish. Barring reasons to doubt these people, their statements give you reason to believe that anyone over 16 will need to buy a fishing license.

    There are also cases in which what people believe actually determines the truth of a claim. For example, the truth of claims about manners and proper behavior might simply depend on what people believe to be good manners and proper behavior. Another example is the case of community standards, which are often taken to be the standards that most people accept. In some cases, what violates certain community standards is taken to be obscene. In such cases, for the claim "x is obscene" to be true is for most people in that community to believe that x is obscene. In such cases it is still prudent to question the justification of the individual beliefs.

    See also Appeal to Popularity.

    Examples of Appeal to Belief

    -At one time, most people in Europe believed that the earth was the center of the solar system (at least most of those who had beliefs about such things). However, this belief turned out to be false.

    -God must exist. After all, I just saw a poll that says 85% of all Americans believe in God.
    -Of course there is nothing wrong with drinking. Ask anyone, he'll tell you that he thinks drinking is just fine.

    How to FREE Your Mind: The Occulted Keys of Wisdom

    “I had written a presentation titled “How to Free Your Mind”, based on the use of the Trivium Method of critical thinking and creative problem solving; this was to be presented at the “Free Your Mind” Conference, in a lecture given by Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media. I published “How to Free Your Mind” as Peace Revolution episode 023, with transcript here; in an attempt to proliferate the ideas of Cognitive Liberty” – Richard Grove
