Retrogressive Causation Fallacy
The retrogressive causation fallacy can only be 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 Retrogressive Causation Fallacy occurs when it is assumed that doing more of the something (call it X) will negate or reduce the effect that comes from X.
Examples of the Retrogressive Causation Fallacy
The problem is that Sandy doesn't understand the true weakness of the human mind. Agrippa's Trilemma makes all secular thinking of no truth value. You may know Agrippa's Trilemma as Münchhausen Trilemma or Albert's Trilemma. A chain of thought is only as strong as the weakest link, the weakest thougth in the chain. Any chain of logic that is going to be sound logic must begin with a thought that is absolute; however, all that is available in the secular worldview is infinite regress, circular reasoning, or axiomatic thinking. There is no way around this fact.
The problem is that couples who live together before getting married are much less likely to stay married--probably because they don't understand what marriage is. Marriage is instituted by God. It has a form and structure that God designed. People who live together before they marry are already distorting this order.
