I saw this poster the other day.
Which, when broken down becomes T->W->A->H->C->D. This poster tries to assert the logic that your thoughts will become your destiny (T->D). Obviously this is not true because I thought about pancakes just now and it is Russell’s teapot crazy to assume my destiny will be a pancake.
This motivational poster (and many, many others) provide us with one premise (ex, your thoughts become your words), makes an invalidated argument (or several) to arrive at an unsound conclusion without a second premise required to validate the conclusion. The truth of the premise is questionable as well (just because I think “wow Aunt Laura, you look really old” doesn’t mean I’ll say it). Motivational posters (and fridge magnets and LOLcats and the like) that proudly display such faulty logic really irritate me. Am I alone on this?
But hey, at least its inspirational!
