Spock-like, We're Not

Ever get the sense that some of what you hear people say doesn't quite hang together? Is it possible that there are some gaps in their logic? The Nizkor Project Fallacies Page provides a list and definitions of rhetorical tricks and leaps of unreason like Ad Hominem, False Dilemma, and Middle Ground.

This is a great resource. I'm trying to figure out a way to combine this page with Inspiration to make a toolkit for BS detection. That could come in handy at next week's UFO conference.
