|3.2 Multiple Objections|
Similarly, there can be more than one objection to a single contention.
There was no dust on the footpads of the Lunar Module (LM), or blast crater in the dust under the LM. Therefore, the Apollo astronauts did not land on the moon. [Based on 4.0]
Since an objection is really just a special sort of reason (i.e., a reason to think the contention is NOT true), we tend to use the term multi-reason argument to cover arguments with multiple objections (as well as mixed cases - see next page).
