corrected Friends, let us progressively compile a list of fallacies, and give them names, that we can refer to in conversation as shortcut, instead of having to reinvent the wheel every time. For instance:
F-1: BURDEN OF PROOF FALLACY: someone asks you “do you have evidence that [INSERT NEW PRODUCT such as GMO, cigarettes in 1940, etc.] is harmful? The answer is that something without a track record, in risk space, needs to prove its hamlessness, not you its harmuflness.
F-2: This more complicated Fallacy:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50282823/neuro.pdf
F-3: GREEN LUMBER FALLACY…
F-4: THE [let’s find a name] FALLACY: example Pinker’s mistaking fact checking for a statistical estimator and calling something “evidence”…
Perhaps we could wikify them? I may open a file and update.
