Ad Absurdum

Ad Absurdum is a type of logical fallacy. It is when someone takes an argument or idea to a ridiculous extreme. For example, if someone said that we should never have candy because it's not healthy, someone using Ad Absurdum would argue that we should never eat anything because it's not healthy. This is an extreme example that is obviously not true. Ad Absurdum is when someone takes an idea too far, and it is usually used to make a point or to prove someone wrong.
