[[Petitio principii]] is a redirect to [[Begging the question]]. I thought the convention was that the primary page for fallacies and whatnot should be under their formal Latin name, and that English synonyms should point to that. Did this one fall through the cracks or something? --13:35, 5 April 2007 (CDT)

What is this called?

Consider this exchange:

  • How do you know the Bible is correct?
  • Because it's the inspired word of God.

Possible follow-up questions are:

  1. How do you know it's the inspired word of God?
  2. Why is something inspired by God necessarily correct?

According to my understanding, response 1 is illustrating "begging the question". So what is response 2 illustrating? - dcljr 12:33, 5 April 2007 (CDT)
