Logical Fallacy of Non Sequitur
Non sequitur is one of the many smokescreens that are used to cover the fact that the reasoning is based on one of the three fallacies of Agrippa's trilemma. By pronouncing a conclusion that doesn't follow from the reasoning, an unsupported assertion is being made. This is axiomatic thinking. Whenever a logical fallacy is committed, the fallacy has its roots in Agrippa's trilemma. All human thought (without Divine revelation) is based on one of three unhappy possibilities. These three possibilities are infinite regress, circular reasoning, or axiomatic thinking. This problem is known as Agrippa's trilemma. Some have claimed that only logic and math can be known without Divine revelation; however, that is not true. There is no reason to trust either logic or math without Divine revelation. Science is also limited to the pragmatic because of the weakness on human reasoning, which is known as Agrippa's trilemma.
An argument that does not follow from its premises. In other words, the evidence provided does not support the claim.
Examples of the Logical Fallacy of Non Sequitur
The conclusion doesn't follow from the evidence given.
Bill Nye interview on CNN, January 3, 2014: "For the people who live in that area, the Kentucky area ajecent to Cinncinatti, you don't want science students exposed to the idea of, not exposed, given the idea that the Earth might be 10,000 years old . . . this is an economic concern."
Now there is a leap of irrationality. The age of the Earth affects the economy? Really? Non Sequitur
This is a blatantly false statement that does not support the claim
