Encyclopedia of Logical Fallacies
Over 800 Fallacy Definitions
Why Have an Encyclopedia of Logical Fallacies?
Why write another reference book on fallacies? If we search the Internet for various fallacies, we’ll find many lists and books of fallacies. And we’ll find that almost all of those lists and books have a definite anti-Christian or anti-Bible slant. We’ll find specialized fallacies that seem to have been developed to answer Christians, but no counterpart to answer ungodly thinkers. For instance, we’ll find the god-of-the-gaps fallacy but no evolution-of-the-gaps fallacy or naturalism-of-the-gaps fallacy. We’ll find the God-did-it fallacy, usually with the “G” in lower case, but no evolution-did-it or naturalism-did-it fallacies. Also, the writers often give examples that target Christians directly and rarely give examples that target ungodly thinkers directly.
Additionally, definitions of fallacies rarely point out the common denominator of all fallacies. Fallacies are ways to make fake stuff seem like real stuff. Since all fallacies have this characteristic, all fallacies consist of making up stuff and calling the made-up stuff true. We could categorize them as axiomatic thinking fallacies (making up stuff) and smokescreen fallacies (making made-up stuff seem real).
Encyclopedia of Logical Fallacies defines and gives examples of over 800 logical fallacies. It covers both formal and informal fallacies. It also defines many terms of logic that could otherwise seem confusing.

As I started writing these books about seven years ago, I posted to Christian discussion groups, Twitter, and Facebook pages and spent six years being beaten up on the Internet, giving the message as faithfully as I could. The attacks by ungodly thinkers were predictable given the message: Christ is real and knowable. Everyone who seeks Him finds Him. He leads, teaches, and corrects every person who follows Him. He provides the discernment. Our part is to listen, yield, and obey. The human mind has no path to truth. If we don’t base our thoughts on truth, they aren’t rational. Any logic that doesn’t have true premises is unsound, that is, insane. Christ is the only Path to Truth. Only He can provide true premises for reasoning. Therefore, rational thought without divine revelation is impossible.
Atheists hate that. Christians who worship human intellect hate that. Godly thinkers loved it. The examples in this book are a small portion of what I learned by enduring six years of being defamed on the Internet. It wasn’t easy. I was often sustained by godly thinkers who encouraged me. Having gone through all that, I don’t want this book to go unread. I want people to read it.
I’ll read your review. I can’t over-emphasize how encouraging it will be for me to read your review of this book.
What Others Are Saying
- This book series will bring you into reality. The layman explanations of true apologetics and epistemology are straightforward, honest, and lucid. How do we know things? Further, why do we know things? And even further, how do we know the things we know are true? Then, how does this compare to the atheist worldview of making up stuff and calling the made-up stuff “true”? And their inevitable and inescapable worldview of an infinite regression of so-called “proofs”? But aren’t we all in the same boat when it comes to discerning what is knowable and what is true? Aren’t we dependent on our own senses and reasoning to determine truth? Petros Scientia explores all of this in this series of books and provides real answers that your mind and soul will find refreshingly simple and yet incredibly profound. These truths are nothing new, just seemingly masked by our own fallen minds and the fact that we live in a society that stresses naturalism and tends to silence all who oppose it. But here I’m finding these suppressed truths to be fully exposed and brought from deep within from the only source of knowledge… Jesus Christ Himself.
I honestly cannot read these fast like I want to, simply because I sometimes have to stop and ponder many of the things written. Honestly, sometimes for days. But I look forward to reading them all. And if this one is any indication of what’s to come in the other volumes, I must say, I’m very excited. ~ QuantumGreg (Amazon review)
