    Great list, and fascinating. Your text needs a look-over by a copyeditor and/or proofreader, though.

    This would be so much more useful if it were in text. Appears to be locked, as my OCR couldn’t get a thing from it. Just wanted to put it in my personal journal for reference, but as a photo the text is way too small to read & photo editing on the phone wouldn’t work, either 🙁

    Great list, although unfortunately there’s a logical fallacy between the premise and title. Just because an argument is illogical it doesn’t mean you’re going to lose it. In fact often the opposite is true, sadly. But the more people that see a great list like this, the more people will spot false arguments and call them on it.
