Ad hominem is a logical fallacy

1. I attack arguments by pointing out the fallacy of the perspective from which the arguments derive their content.

2. Person B holds his perspective in great esteem and refuses to see the world differently, even for the sake of thought experiment.

3. Therefore, according to Person B, my arguments are a logical fallacy; they become magically so. He thinks I should see the brilliance of his arguments, ignoring the unsupportable foundational beliefs upon which his arguments, reason and logic stands.

Yes, logicians truly are idiots.
