Circular reasoning

Circular reasoning

Circular reasoning is, quite literally, reasoning that goes in a circle. In circular reasoning, the argument goes back on itself, repeating indefinitely. It is a logical fallacy, because circular arguments are ultimately baseless. The conclusion is assumed in one of the premises. Arguments need to go back to self-evident truths.

Conservatives often use circular reasoning, especially when arguing for the existence of the fictional character they believe in. This is because conservatism like Religion is illogical.
