Why do people keep speaking of fallacies such as kings and queens? ?

No such thing as a king or queen exists, nor does a police officer or teacher exist or rich or poor people. By speaking of such fallacies people legitimise lies as parents legitimise a childs belief in Santa

     vegetables are bad for you after all the

    dinosaurs ate plants and we all know

    what happened to them let's pause for a

    the moment that argument was ridiculous and

    that's because it contained a logical

    fallacy a logical fallacy is any kind of

    error in reasoning that renders an

    argument invalid they can involve

    distorting or manipulating facts drawing

    false conclusions or distracting you

    from the actual issue at hand in theory

    it seems like they'd be pretty easy to

    spot but this isn't always the case

    sometimes logical fallacies are used

    intentionally to try and win a debate in

    these cases they're often presented by

    the speaker with a certain level of

    confidence and in doing so they're more

    persuasive if they sound like they know

    what they're talking about we're more

    likely to believe them even if their

    stance doesn't make complete logical

    the sense one common logical fallacy is the

    false cause this is when someone

    incorrectly identifies the cause of

    something in my argument I stated that

    the dinosaurs became extinct because

    they ate vegetables now while these two

    separate things did happen the diet of

    vegetables was not the cause of their

    extinction maybe you've heard false

    cause more commonly represented by the

    phrase correlation does not equal

    causation meaning that just because of two

    things occurred around the same time it

    doesn't mean that one caused the other a

    a strawman is when someone takes an

    argument and misrepresents it so that

    it's easier to attack for example let's

    say Callie is advocating that sporks

    should be the new standard for

    silverware since they're more efficient

    Madeleine responds that she's shocked

    Callie would want to outlaw spoons and

    forks and put millions out of work at

    the fork and spoon factories a straw man

    is frequently used in politics in an

    an effort to discredit and other

    politicians views on a particular issue

    begging the question is a type of

    a circular argument where someone includes

    the conclusion as a part of their

    reasoning George says ghosts exist

    because I saw a ghost in my closet his

    the conclusion is ghosts exist

    his premise also assumes that ghosts

    exist rather than assuming that ghosts

    exist from the get-go George should be

    using evidence and reasoning to prove

    that they exist the false dilemma or

    the false dichotomy is a logical fallacy

    where a situation is presented as being

    an either/or option when in reality

    there are more possible options

    available than just the chosen to

    Rebecca rings the doorbell but Ethan

    doesn't answer

    she then thinks oh Ethan must not be

    home Rebecca posits that either

    Ethan answers the door or he is at home

    in reality, he could be sleeping doing

    some work in the backyard or taking a

    shower most logical fallacies can be

    spotted by thinking critically make sure

    to ask questions is logic at work here

    or is it simply rhetoric does their

    proof actually lead to the conclusion

    they're proposing by applying critical

    thinking you'll be able to detect

    logical fallacies in the world around

    you and prevent yourself from using them

    as well as GCF global creating

    opportunities for a better life

    Talk it over with a shrink, dear. It appears you need one.

    Kings and queens do exist in modern countries. Just not too many of them still. Have a monarchy 

    So kings are not a fallacy, the same way as Santa, is. Get the facts straight first.

    You are wrong with the first.

    The santa thing is a lie.

    Your version of reality differs vastly from the general consensus. Logically speaking, this makes your version less true, even if you happen to be right, at least insofar as truth is based on communal perception rather than measurable reality.

    Is there a point to this nonsensical rant, or are you just high?
