Welcome! This is the place to ask the community of experts and other fallacyophites (I made up that word) if someone has a committed a fallacy or not. This is a great way to settle a dispute! This is also the home of the "Mastering Logical Fallacies" student support.


Dr. Bo's Criteria for Logical Fallacies:

  1. It must be an error in reasoning not a factual error.
  2. It must be commonly applied to an argument either in the form of the argument or in the interpretation of the argument.
  3. It must be deceptive in that it often fools the average adult.

Therefore, we will define a logical fallacy as a concept within argumentation that commonly leads to an error in reasoning due to the deceptive nature of its presentation. Logical fallacies can comprise fallacious arguments that contain one or more non-factual errors in their form or deceptive arguments that often lead to fallacious reasoning in their evaluation.

Atom bombs do not work

The original newspaper release was that Nagasaki and Hiroshima were fire bombed like Tokyo and it was only later that the story of the Abomb surfaced. All brick buildings were left standing, including the Bank of Japan which is still in use today. No residue “radiation”..
No Atom bombs have ever been used even during the Vietnam war where every other despicable weapon was used including chemicals. The USA lost this war.
No dictator or mad leaderr has ever used nuclear weapons.
All photos and film of atomic explosions are easily proven fake http://mileswmathis.com/trinity.pdf
Various scientists have shown the actual mechanics of an Abomb are not workable http://heiwaco.tripod.com/bomb.htm

The Atomic bomb hoax was thought up by the USA, Russia and UK after WWII. Various other countries have been let into the hoax. The idea is to keep the masses in constant fear.

Not one single nuclear weapon large or small has ever been used.

Logical conclusion:- They don’t work

About Bo Bennett, PhD

Bo's personal motto is "Expose an irrational belief, keep a person rational for a day. Expose irrational thinking, keep a person rational for a lifetime."  Much of his charitable work is in the area of education—not teaching people what to think, but how to think.  His projects include his book, The Concept: A Critical and Honest Look at God and Religion, and Logically Fallacious, the most comprehensive collection of logical fallacies.  Bo's personal blog is called Relationship With Reason, where he writes about several topics related to critical thinking.  His secular (humanistic) philosophy is detailed at PositiveHumanism.com.
Bo is currently the producer and host of The Humanist Hour, the official broadcast of the American Humanist Association, where he can be heard weekly discussing a variety of humanistic issued, mostly related to science, psychology, philosophy, and critical thinking.

This is simply a classic Conspiracy theory, and personally, far more outlandish than most of the ones I have heard before.

About David Blomstrom

I'm Seattle's only political activist - and, no, that isn't an arrogant statement; it's just the sad truth.

I'm working on a series of political books, including one focusing on conspiracy science. I lump conspiracy theories into three categories: credible or confirmed (e.g. Watergate), non-credible (e.g. the U.S. government is creating earthquakes) and, in between, fringe conspiracy theory (e.g. chemtrails).

I agree with Dr. Bo on this one; this is a non-credible conspiracy theory. In fact, I hate to even call it a "conspiracy theory," because I think the term deserves a little respect.

There are simply too many victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki blasts. There are even reports of people suffering from radiation sickness in Ethiopia. Africa's victims aren't associated with atomic/nuclear blasts but with nuclear wastes that are apparently being dumped off the coast. But if nuclear energy (along with accidents like Fukushima and Chernobyl) is a fact of life, is it such a stretch to imagine that people could have converted atomic energy for use in warfare towards the end of WWII?

I believe that huge conspiracies involving multiple organizations and even national governments are not only possible but common. But a conspiracy involving eight or nine nations that falsely claim to have nuclear weapons is a little hard to believe.
