Argumentum ad lapidem

From Iron Chariots Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The argument "ad lapidem" is a logical fallacy that is essentially an attempt to dismiss a statement as absurd without giving reason to support the dismissal. They are fallacious because they fail to address the merit of the claims in dispute. Ad hominems are fallacious for much the same reason, as they address the advocate, not the merit of the claim.
