Logical Fallacy of False or Faulty Analogy / Weak Analogy / Bad Analogy / Apples and Oranges / Appeal to the Moon
Faulty analogy is one of the many smokescreens that are used to cover the fact that the reasoning is based on one of the three fallacies of Agrippa's trilemma. Whenever a logical fallacy is committed, the fallacy has its roots in Agrippa's trilemma. All human thought (without Divine revelation) is based on one of three unhappy possibilities. These three possibilities are infinite regress, circular reasoning, or axiomatic thinking. This problem is known as Agrippa's trilemma. Some have claimed that only logic and math can be known without Divine revelation; however, that is not true. There is no reason to trust either logic or math without Divine revelation. Science is also limited to the pragmatic because of the weakness on human reasoning, which is known as Agrippa's trilemma.
The logical fallacy of false or faulty analogy / weak analogy / bad analogy / apples and oranges / appeal to the moon occurs when two things are said to be like each other in a way that they are not like each other or and analogy is made between to things that are not similar enough to reasonably make the analogy.
Examples of the Logical Fallacy of False or Faulty Analogy / Weak Analogy / Bad Analogy /Apples and Oranges / Appeal to the Moon
Evolutionism’s analogy between speciation and molecules-to-man evolution.
Speciation is not molecules-to-man evolution. There are speculative stories that are claimed to prove that speciation proves molecules-to-man evolution, but they are, after all, just stories.
Mentioning evolution in a list of legitimate science that is testable and verifiable, while evolution is a mere story that can be morphed to fit any evidence that may appear. This is a failure to distinguish between operational science and big bang, evolution, attacks on the Bible, Atheism, Uniformitarianism, Naturalism, Materialism, none of which can be tested in the present using scientific method.
Putting a man on the moon is not similar to fixing society, which would involve changing human nature.
Dawkins' 'weasel computer program = microbiology experiment' debacle
The program makes decisions that are not available in nature and yet is presented as a model of nature. It is a model of the personification of natural selection into an intelligent agent that has a goal in mind and a constant eye on meetin that goal. In nature, we only see a natural elimination that happens when a mutation occurs that causes a weakness great enough to disallow reproduction.
“To believe in evolution is the same as believing in gravity."
Evolution is an untestable story of the past while gravity is testable in the present.
Comparing the idea of the Earth orbiting the Sun (something we can prove false in the present by observation) to the historical account of the Genesis creation and the Genesis flood (neither of which can be directly observed in the past using science).
