What is the type of reasoning used here in the stimulus? I know it is not conditional.

Hi Dandelion,

This can probably be best seen as a variation of the common flaw where "some evidence against a position is used to conclude the position is false." The critic doesn't like why/how they believe a certain thing, and uses that to dismiss their entire position.
