    since some threads can get pretty emotive..lets do it for for fun..propose an argument based on a logical fallacy

    http://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/

    and then you have to counter it with another logical fallacy....

    (As logical fallacies in someone's argument are like catnip to me, this should be interesting.)

    No real dancer would participate in this thread.

    However, everyone knows ballroom isn't really dancing.

    Ooh, I think I'll enjoy this game! Let's go straight for a big one... :twisted:

    I'll accept there's no god when you prove it to me.

    My faith is strong enough to withstand anything you say.

    Here's one: (I have to reject the format. Someone "refute" this and then make your own illogical proposition. Or make them one and the same. I believe it'd be more fun that way.)

    Bees can't fly. Science says so.

    Scientists don't know anything.

    My instructor makes me work on my basics because she's a mean-spirited person and hates puppies!

    Being mean-spirited and hating puppies may have nothing to do with her making you do basics, non sequitur.

    Let's see, I'll try to reiterate one I heard in class once:

    A barber in a town makes this statement about its inhabitants: "I only shave people that don't shave themselves."

    Barbers never seem to shave women. That's sexist.
