Argumentum Ad Nauseam

Argumentum Ad Nauseam is a type of cognitive bias and logical fallacy. It is when someone keeps repeating the same idea or opinion over and over again, until it is accepted as true. This is often done without any evidence or proof to back up their statements. An 8 year old would understand this as someone saying the same thing again and again, expecting others to believe it, even if it isn't true and there is no evidence to back it up.

Argumentum Ad Nauseam

Argumentum ad nauseam is a logical fallacy which is often seen in arguments. It is a form of argumentative persuasion which relies on repetition to convince the listener. This form of argumentation is based on the idea that if an idea or point is repeated often enough, it will eventually become accepted as true, regardless of its actual validity or truth. This type of logical fallacy relies on a cognitive bias of the listener, which makes them more likely to accept a point if it is repeated multiple times. This fallacy can be dangerous if used to manipulate the listener into accepting false information or beliefs.
