By begs the question is a logical fallacy (anonymous) | Posted November 28, 2013 at 12:24:19 in reply to Comment 95250

Can everyone please stop using the term "begs the question"? It doesn't mean "raises the question". If you want to say "raises the question", just say it. If you aren't sure if "begs the question" is correct in any given circumstance, chances are VERY HIGH that it is NOT the correct use. So it's easier to just never use it. Unless you are a logician - or you want to sound pompous (and wrong).
