What is a Fallacy?
Fallacies are mistakes or errors within reasoning and arguments. This "differs from a factual error, which is simply being wrong about the facts. To be more specific, a fallacy is an "argument" in which the premises given for the conclusion do not provide the needed degree of support. A deductive fallacy is a deductive argument that is invalid (it is such that it could have all true premises and still have a false conclusion)" (Labossiere, 2013, pg. 1).
