Storyboard Text

  • Slippery Slope: attempts to discredit a proposition by arguing that its acceptance will undoubtedly lead to a sequence of events, one or more of which are undesirable
  • If you do not think that dogs are smarter than cats, then you will plummet into a deep dark hole of isolation, and find yourself with no friends!
  • Appeal to Bandwagon: an argument uses the fact that a sizable number of people, or perhaps even a majority, believe in something as evidence that it must therefore be true
  • All humans think that dogs are smarter than cats. That is why humans play fetch with dogs and not cats.
  • Ad Hominen: attacking a person's character rather than what he or she is saying with the intention of diverting the discussion and discrediting the person's argument
  • I am smarter than you! You are big, dirty, and so smelly!
  • Appeal to Fear: plays on the fears of an audience by imagining a scary future that would be of their making if some proposition were accepted.
  • If you think that you are smarter than me, than you better sleep with one eye open!
  • Hasty Generalization: when one generalizes from a sample that is either too small or too special to be representative of a population.
  • My owners told me dogs are smarter than cats. I mean, it must be true if they said so!
  • Genetic Fallacy: when an argument is either devalued or defended solely because of its history.
  • You are not smarter than me. You are a spoiled-rotten cat from a rich family, you have learned nothing!
