What type of fallacy is false cause? User: What type of fallacy is The ancient pyramids in Egypt were so symmetrical and well-built that they must have been constructed by aliens from another planet.”
Weegy: There is also another incorrect assumption lying behind this one: that ... That is to say, if we can't explain how the Egyptians built a pyramid in terms ... built by ancient peoples, and thus must have been constructed by aliens. ... [ But with the pyramids, the historical record of how they were built has been lost. ] User: What is the meaning of false analogy in fallacy Weegy: In an analogy, two objects (or events), A and B are shown to be similar. Then it is argued that since A has property P, so also B must have property P. [ An analogy fails when the two objects, A and B, are different in a way which affects whether they both have property P. Examples: Employees are like nails. Just as nails must be hit in the head in order to make them work, so must employees. Government is like business, so just as business must be sensitive primarily to the bottom line, so also must government. (But the objectives of government and business are completely different, so probably they will have to meet different criteria.) ] (More)
