Nonsense is the use of words without proper meaning; words which fail to express any intelligible ideas, or which are entirely irrelevant. In written language, nonsense is any text which is not comprehensible or which is not logically connected.

A red herring is a logical fallacy that is used to distract attention away from a central argument. It’s when someone presents an argument that is irrelevant to the point they’re trying to make. They’re meant to be distractions, and they’re often used to avoid addressing a topic.

A red herring is an irrelevant topic, a distraction from the real issue. A straw man is an easy-to-knock-down argument, a weak analogy. A sacred cow is a long-held belief or tradition that is not open to question.
