    One particular type of logical fallacy I see a lot in internet "debates"

    Neither of these are "stupid" or invalid arguments. The marginal case clearly shows the flaw in the argument, in this case the flaw of using intelligence as a metric for judging the worth of species, demonstrating that the usefulness of examples and thought experiments to constructing arguments...

    One particular type of logical fallacy I see a lot in internet "debates"

    But the one example you can give me of where this has happened is one where we could supposedly have been focussing on implementation details aka a new definition of marriage? This seems to just be "I disagree about one thing and would have preferred marriage be changed instead of abolished"...

    One particular type of logical fallacy I see a lot in internet "debates"

I don't see a problem with it we do it all the time, science is based on it. Everything I said still applies. To say that "because xyz company is bad, therefore big business...

    One particular type of logical fallacy I see a lot in internet "debates"

    Using examples to make arguments is fine, it's not a logical fallacy. Examples often make for interesting case studies that allow you to elucidate more general problems with a concept. This is because arguments generally take place in the real world and are useless in an abstract sense. That is...
