Storyboard Text

  • Ad Hominem
  • You can't say cats are smarter than dogs, because you are just a kid and don't know what you're talking about.
  • Appeal To Pity
  • Because more of us dogs are homeless, and we live shorter lives, we should all just agree dogs are smarter. 
  • Appeal to Irrelevant Authority
  • As an astronaut trained to withstand space, I can vouch 100% that dogs are smarter than cats. 
  • Ad Hominem is where the person arguing attacks the person himself, rather than addressing the actual argument. 
  • Hasty Generalization
  • Well every cat I've ever met has been dumb enough to walk into something, so obviously cats are stupid. 
  • Appeal to Pity is where the person arguing chooses to make their opponent feel bad, instead of arguing their point. 
  • Genetic Fallacy
  • How can you say that dogs are smarter than cats when they evolved from those disgusting and savage wolves!
  • Appeal to False Authority is when the person arguing uses an expert as an opinion, but the expert is not related to that field or argument in any way. 
  • Bandwagon
  • Since we all agree dogs are smarter than cats, you have to too.
  • A Hasty Generalization means to jump to conclusions, often based off of small past experiences. 
  • A Genetic Fallacy is when the person arguing attacks the subject's genes or background, and uses that as the basis for their argument. 
  • The Bandwagon Fallacy is when the person arguing argues simply because everyone else believes the same thing.
