Such a carefree, light headed being-- twirling in circles you finally did yourself in for lack of a logical grounding. You’ll be remembered because you are part of our memory.
Named by Aristotle…circular reasoning
You knew famous people
“This is something we should all believe because everyone believes it.”
“Everyone is doing it
so it’s obviously right.”
“I think he is unattractive
because he is ugly.”
We told you you had a great resume but you needed another reference. You said you’d ask Mrs. Harrell, and when we asked you how we could know she was a valid reference you said it was because you could vouch for her. (oh, we’ll miss that circular reasoning)
You would always define your vocabulary words by using the word being defined (how precious)
Your first love remembers you
A keepsake Your business ventures
Your most famous saying
“Paranormal phenomena exists because I’ve experienced what can only be described as paranormal.”
“This painting is trash because
it’s obviously worthless.”
“She’s incapable of making decisions because she’s incompetent.”
You always assumed
what you claimed to be proving.
You never learned to support your argument.
And now a brief tribute
from out of town relatives
Begging The Question
Kelsey Turner and Chelsey White
Rebecca: Goody Ann! You sent a child to conjure up the dead?
Mrs Putnam: Let god blame me, not you, not you, Rebecca! I’ll not have judging me any more! Is it natural work to lose 7 children before they live a day?
She says that her kids are dying because of a curse, but there is no way that this could possibly happen. So she is blaming something on another event without reasoning.
Martha Corey: I am innocent to a witch. I know not what a witch is.
Hathorne: How do you know, then, that you are not a witch?
She claims she’s not a witch, but Hathorne wants to know how she knows she’s not a witch if she doesn’t know what a witch really is.
