Upon reflecting on the nature of logic and effective reasoning, I came to the conclusion that the tool kit of logical argumentation is dated and incomplete.
I propose the following fallacy: Argumentum ab cule.
Roughly translated as argument from the ass.
Considered with more modern colloqualisms, this could be interpreted as talking from one’s ass. In debate, this can be used to show, in a polite and scholarly manner, that your opponent is full of crap.
There is another fallacy that I propose: Argumentum ad cule.
This is roughly translated as argument to the ass.
Perhaps this falls more in line with the modern colloqualism of talking shit. Traditionally, this actually would be an ad hominem attack. There might be some overlap here, but sometimes our lexicon needs to be updated. Ad hominem needs to go.
Special thanks to Alicia for her continuing academic guidance and translating the phrases into Latin.
