Example of Ignorance Fallacy

'Ignorance fallacy' is an inefficient expression with various extended meanings. The basic premise is that ignorant people argue from ignorance, which inevitably produces fallacious arguments. 'Invincible ignorance fallacy' refers to a person who refuses to believe an argument, regardless of evidence. The arguments are logical fallacies, because they can't be based on fact. A related situation is the 'argument to ignorance' whereby something is considered false purely because it's unproven, or true because its falsity is unproven.

Examples of Ignorance Fallacy:

Old version: The Moon is made of green cheese.
The Sun revolves around the Earth.
The Earth is flat.
