Obsession With Logical Fallacies

Today’s smartest generation of atheists don’t cite passages from the Bible. They cite each other’s logical fallacies, from the ‘Bible’ of Logical Fallacies. The attention brought to Logical Fallacies has become a ‘religion’ unto itself. You can win online arguments by calling out your opponent’s logical fallacy, without having to actually argue anything. It’s like ‘straw man’ …you lose. Or ‘reductio ad absurdum’…I sound smart for using Latin, and you lose. These fallacies are valid and often encountered in arguments, it’s just funny the recent obsession with them, as if the act of citing the fallacy in itself constitutes a counterargument.
