Who’s “Virginia”? And what’s an “ad hom”?
Victoria Lamb Hatch

My apologies, Victoria. I had the old Xmas story in mind as I read your posts. You know the one where she is told, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” This rather crude format that Medium.com uses does not seem to allow corrections after a post is “publish[ed]”.

Do you really not know what an ad hominem argument is? That certainly explains some things about your posts. It is one of the most popular tricks of false logic. Let me help you with it …

Learn about it, go forth and sin no more. :-)

Like what you read? Give ELSEVAR a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
