    Yeah...an appeal to authority is no less a logical fallacy than a bandwagon fallacy.

    Czernobog's rule of evidence: If it matches what he believes it's acceptable as evidence. If it doesn't, then absurd tangents, restating positions inaccurately and general snark are in order.

    Nope. Czernobog's rules of logical debate: Don't employ logical fallacies to try and win an argument. It is not my fault that when you run out of logical responses to my arguments, you feel the need to rely on logical fallacies. It is not my fault you are not very good at this. Learn more. Try harder.

    I don't try to win arguments with you.

    You're sloppy, such as yesterday when you misquoted the Bible to try to make a point. And you're rude, with a level of arrogance which is not justified by your debate performance.

    On the other hand, I'm a professionally trained logician, so your mockery of me is laughable. I know my skill set.




    Mainly I'm intrigued by your aggressive disdain for believers.

    You're a "professionally trained logician", and employed logical fallacies back to back? I'd get my money back from the training.

    The Justices did not just make something up that they wanted to be there. The right to privacy, as articulated in Roe, is well-founded in constitutional jurisprudence, and is the general principle upon which the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Ninth Amendments are in part founded. ("In part" because non-privacy issues are also dealt with therein.)

    Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973)

    The right, as stated in the 5th Amendment, is that "[n]o person shall ... be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself."

    The "right to silence" is the fundamental right. Interestingly, in England and Wales silence may be construed against the defendant, while in Scotland (and the United States) it may not.
