*A special thanks to the commentator here I read it and yes.. this is good*

matthewbeaudett if you left a dead animal on the surface of earth it would rot and be broken down by microbes and fungus. if you rapidly covered it with earth and compressed the air or of it, you can mumify it. later minerals will replace the organic matter and you’ll have a fossil. so, what this pin is showing is a non equivalent falicy.

*The idea is two items being compared*

*how do you measure them*

*Some people manipulate this to try and make a point*

*a side point *

*this is the origin of money when it comes to trade*

*what is the value of one thing compared to another*

*well False Equivalence*

*is when someone tries to alter data sets to being the same when they are not equal*

______________________________________________________________

A **false equivalence** or **false equivalency** is an informal fallacy in which an equivalence is drawn between two subjects based on flawed or false reasoning. This fallacy is categorized as a fallacy of inconsistency.^{[1]} Colloquially, a false equivalence is often called “comparing apples and oranges.”

## Characteristics[edit]

This fallacy is committed when one shared trait between two subjects is assumed to show equivalence, especially in order of magnitude, when equivalence is not necessarily the logical result.^{[2]} False equivalence is a common result when an anecdotal similarity is pointed out as equal, but the claim of equivalence does not bear scrutiny because the similarity is based on oversimplification or ignorance of additional factors. The pattern of the fallacy is often as such:

If

Ais the set containingcandd, andBis the set containingdandd, then since they both containd,AandBare equal.

In an even more fallacious version, *d* is not required to exist in both sets; merely a similarity of two items *d_1* in set *A* and *d_2* in set *B* is cited to assert equivalence among the sets.^{[3]}

Example:

If apples and oranges are both fruits, and there are seeds in both apples and oranges, then since they both contain seeds, apples and oranges are equal.
