Appeal To The Stone

Appeal To The Stone is a logical fallacy, which means it is an argument that may seem convincing but is actually based on a false assumption. It's like if someone was trying to prove that an 8-year-old was wrong and they said, Well, that's just the way it is, without giving any evidence to back it up. This kind of argument is not valid because it relies on an assumption that cannot be proven. It's like trying to move a big stone with your bare hands - no matter how hard you try, it won't move.

Logical fallacy, cognitive bias, faulty reasoning, invalid argument.
