Oh! And now I remembered what I wanted to tell you about (oh, the joys of random memory recalls).
Today in TOK (theory of knowledge; less fun than it sounds due to class and teacher, but that's a story for this weekend), we were talking about emotions and whatnot, and the topic eventually led to a small discussion about how "souls were the essence of humanity" (I'm not quoting verbatim, but rather the consensus of the class). I objected, and wanted to site Russell's Teapot as a fancy way of refuting the class.
My question, then, is this: is Russell's argument a reductio ad absurdum fallacy (can it be argued as such/is it really said fallacy) or is it something else entirely?
