An Appeal to motive is a form of logical fallacy that's related to ad hominem attacks. This particular fallacy is when an argument one is making is questioned due to his or her supposed motives.

Examples

  • "You atheists are rejecting my evidence because you want to sin."
  • "Those scientists are only promoting global warming because they want more funding."
