Logical Fallacies 1

Here is an example of a common logical fallacy known as the ad hominem argument, which is Latin for "argument against the person" or "argument toward the person". Basically, an ad hominem argument goes like this:

 

Person 1 makes claim X

There is something objectionable about Person 1

Therefore claim X is false
