Reductio ad absurdum

Posted on Jun 1, 2011 in Logical Fallacies

reducing to absurdity“. In this type of consistency a principle taken to its logical conclusion will yield an absurd result. Evolutionists will want to take a philosophy only so far, and then inconsistently switch to another.

For example, using this principle (Reductio ad absurdum), you can refute empiricism. By this standard to it’s logical conclusion, we would eventually have to apply it to empiricism itself. If empiricism were true, we could never know that it was true since empiricism ITSELF has not been observed. Empiricism leads to the absurd conclusion that we cannot actually KNOW anything.
