Where is *Mock*?

All opinions shared in short sentences, one line per thought. Quickly gets self off track and leaves you wondering why and what the hell he's talking about. Ends up blaming McDaniels (AKA Beavis) for the situation, regardless of whether or not it has ANYTHING to do with him.

Requirements for a valid argument

An argument is valid if and only if:

 All of the premises of the argument are true.
 The form of the argument is sound.
 No terms are used ambiguously; that is, the same word or phrase means the
same thing at each step of the argument.

...and more prevalent around here (right, Rev?):

Deductive arguments proceed from premises to a certain conclusion. If a person grants the truth of the premises, then the person would be irrational to deny the truth of the conclusion. A person who disagrees with the conclusion and wishes to prove it is in error must therefore nd a violation of one of the three conditions laid out in the rst section. But note also that a true conclusion can be reached from false premises, so merely proving that a given argument is invalid does not prove that the conclusion is false{only that it remains unproven.

Inductive arguments are different in that a rational person can admit the truth of the
premises, see the force of the argument, and still disagree with the conclusion. An
inductive argument suggests the truth of its conclusion but does not make it certain.
"I've never seen a purple cow ..."; if I have looked at many cows and never seen a
purple one, I have an inductive argument to believe that they don't exist, but I have
not proven that they do not exist.

Okay, is there a particular reason you've posted this same clip in like five different threads now? I mean, other than your mental retardation?

See, you covered all examples of how it cannot be an arguement. You laid out the reason and then the truth. Mock cannot disagree with anything you stated. End of discussion.

We need Smillin Ahole and Rev to give another example.

There should be a whole 'nuther level for McSkillet, too, for turning everything into an example of anti-Christian prejudice and discrimination, so he can come running to the defense of the faith like a good "prayer warrior" should.

Technically an argument can be valid despite all the premises being wrong, the form of the argument being hogwash and great ambiguity.

I shall give an example:

I argue that the reason we have yearly seasons is because of the tilt of the earths axes of rotation relative to the plane of orbit around the sun (true) and the premise for this argument is that my globe at home is tilted relative to the shelf it is standing on and also everybody knows that the earth orbits the sun in a circular fashion so there is no other way of explaining seasons.

Inductive, deductive, subjunctive, superlative, moreative, lessative - I got your tive's hanging right here, bud.
