Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

False Logic

Embracing hate and then looking for reasons to justify it, exemplifies the worst kind of wrong thinking. Like drug companies publishing only favorable results while ignoring unfavorable studies, deductive reasoning run backwards, leads to false conclusions. Another error in logic results from parallel thinking, where in because one true element in two parallel events is true, one concludes the other element to be true as well. Both errors in logic appear in news media on a regular basis. Furthermore, these fallacies drive various forms of mass hysterical or mob thinking.
