The opposite of a fallacy is... a fallacy

Not that I'm not having some fun with it, but does pointing out a fallacy mean that you are arguing for its opposite, also a fallacy? If you know what the word “fallacy” means then you know the answer is “no.”

Jeremy has a long post were he argues against my taking the position of the opposing fallacy that the quote bellow might come in handy in refuting. My only problem with it is: he's arguing against a position I don't hold; otherwise, good stuff.

Why does everything have to be so complicated?

i still like my counter to c.s. lewis's complex table, tho. ;)
