Basic Description Edit

An informal logical fallacy also known as the argument from imaginary textbooks or "argumentum ab volumen falsum" is a special case of a "straw-man fallacy" using a supposed quote from a "textbook" which a person has on hand to prove a point, usually that whatever is in said textbook is allegedly untrue and was once subscribed to by the scientific community. This is a debate tactic most famously employ by Kent Hovind.
