The Gish gallop occurs when the putative expert slickly rattles off a long list of assertions without providing evidence or allowing questions. It is a tactic of drowning your opponent in a flood of individually-weak arguments in order to prevent rebuttal of the whole argument collection without great effort.

It makes it difficult for anyone to have a well-composed answer immediately available to every argument present in the Gish gallop.

Example of a Gish gallop

And just because YOU don’t know how the cheese is created on the moon, doesn’t mean that there isn’t a cheese-creating mechanism at the core of the moon. Run by secret moon wizards. And there are moon cows, that only live on the far side of the moon, eating moon grass that grows during the 14.25 days of the month where it’s illuminated – presumably spending the remaining 14.25 days in hibernation or possibly storing metabolites like cacti.

Naturally, since the crust is mostly rock, then the grass would mostly be rock too, leading to heavier milk and cheese. There’s your Occam’s Razor! All you need to do is assume the existence of a completely novel form of biological life and the explanation becomes simple!

Even more so when this neatly explains the motivation for Big Milk – moon cheese is much more valuable than “Earther cheese” and only the super wealthy can afford the biological processing necessary to make it edible instead of poisonous which is why only the super-rich members of the Illuminati and Freemasons know about it. NOW IT ALL MAKES SENSE!!!!!
