Brillant Joseph! I haven't seen these since I fled the company of the Jesuits...damned handy guidelines tho.

The "Affirming the consequent" fallacy reminds of this gem that caused a bunch of trouble after uttered it in Logic...

God is love.
Love is blind.
Ray Charles is Blind,
Ergo...

Some how the ancient priest teaching this class did not see the humor in my deduction.

... well, your dudective reasoning is a little stray away, but Jesuits are pretty hard core with things like this. They are also pretty hard core when it comes to the art of making beer... a nice trade off IMHO. :)

Sorry, I was using a Straw Man misinterpretation followed by an Appeal to Fear, leaving SteveShaw with an Aunt Sally.
