An Existential fallacy is when the existence of a thing is implied, when it otherwise shouldn't from the premises.

Formal Construction

  1. All S are P
  2. Some P are S

  1. All leprechauns are people
  2. Thus, some people are leprechauns
  • Example 2
  1. All answered prayers would come from a god
  2. Thus, some answered prayers do come from a god
  • Example 3
