We found this handy little chart online that will help you to identify logical¬†fallacies. (You’ll have to go to the website for functioning icons.) These easy-to-fall-for ways of arguing are frequently used in the media and politics and (sadly) our churches, so it can be nice to know how to catch them. Have fun!

From the website:

A logical fallacy is usually what has happened when someone is wrong about something. It’s a flaw in reasoning. They’re like tricks or illusions of thought, and they’re often very sneakily used by politicians and the media to fool people.
