ad consequentiam : Java Glossary


ad consequentiam
aka appeal to consquences. A logical fallacy. Instead of arguing about whether something is true, the pleader argues about whether he would like the consequences if it were true. This occurs most commonly in religious debates where one party argues God must exist because he would feel unbearably lonely if God did not exist.
