These are the facts to rebut just a few of the fallacies I read on a daily basis about our party.
Masood Aziz outlines six fallacies they perpetuate about the US engagement in Afghanistan.
But this post-partisan dream, it turns out, rested on two fallacies.
late 15c., "deception, false statement," from Latin fallacia "deception," noun of quality from fallax (genitive fallacis) "deceptive," from fallere "deceive" (see fail (v.)). Specific sense in logic dates from 1550s. An earlier form was fallace (c.1300), from Old French fallace.
A false or mistaken idea based on faulty knowledge or reasoning. For example, kings who have divorced their wives for failing to produce a son have held to the fallacy that a mother determines the sex of a child, when actually the father does. (See sex chromosomes.)
