Refraction (Bent Thinking) #70
- Appeal to Nature – wherein a judgment is based solely on whether the subject of the judgment is ‘natural’ or ‘unnatural’. Refutation: “What is” not the same as “what should be”. Example – Albrecht: “Bunny, cannabis is healthy and good for you because it is natural.” Side Note: There are many things in life and the universe that, on the surface are distasteful and disagreeable. There is no logical reason conclude that because something exists in nature, therefore humans can use these things any way they choose and without harm.
