False Dilemma

Definition: A false dilemma is a logical fallacy in which a person presenting an argument gives two choices to pick from. In reality, however, there exist many more choices than the two presented.

Fallacy Structure: Person A asks you to choose between choices X and Y where X and Y exist in a much larger set.

Example: You either love God or you hate God. Which one is it?

Example: You can follow the word of Christ, or you can follow the word of Satan. Which one will you choose?

Example: Should the Bible be taken literally or metaphorically?

Example: Should you follow science or religion?
