Below is a link to a list of logical fallacies. How many of them can you identify people committing practically every time they comment on this site (including yourseIf)? We should try to get our emotions under control, look at ourselves objectively, and present rational arguments based on concrete facts. The human intellect, properly used, is the only thing that sets us apart from the rest of the animals on this planet.

Which is more important? An objective search for truth or winning an argument?

PS. I do not put myself in a special category. I am also an unthinking ape.
