Golden Hammer Fallacy
This page is part of the EvoWiki encyclopedia of fallacies.
- Persimplex responsum fallacy
- Very Simple Answer
"If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail to you." You commit this fallacy if you propose the same type of solution to every problem you encounter. Snake-oil salesmen and their cure-alls are one example. Creationists tend to use God as an explain-all solution.
