  • Word of the Day

    I did a search and no luck so I'll start this.

    One poster is ensconced in fallacies so let's start off with this word of the day:

    The twist of this thread is to post a word that we often know or a rare or archaic word that many of us don't know and post a context of situation with it
    in italics.

    noun, plural fal·la·cies.

    a deceptive, misleading, or false notion, belief, etc.:That the world is flat was at one time a popular fallacy.
    a misleading or unsound argument.
    deceptive, misleading, or false nature; erroneousness.
    Logic. any of various types of erroneous reasoning that render arguments logically unsound.
    Obsolete. deception.
