In logic there is a fallacy known as non sequitur. This Latin phrase simply means "does not follow" and describes a situation where a supposed "effect" actually "does not follow" from its supposed cause. Here is an example – absurd to be sure – of a non sequitur: Where does wind come from? It obviously is caused by the leaves of the trees waving. When the leaves wave, the movement causes the wind to blow. We know this to be true because, when we landed men on the moon there was no wind because there were no trees!
