Pigs are mammals.
Humans are mammals.
Therefore, pigs are human.

twentyseven

Con

Pigs are not human because pigs belong to the suidae family of mammals.Humans belong to the hominidae family of mammals.Both pigs and humans are mammals but not the same species of mammals so they are not the same.

Slightly different version of Association Fallacy on Pro's part.
Pigs (A) Are mammals (C).
Humans (B) Are mammals (C).
A=C
B=C
Conclusion: Therefore A=B.
This is not correct, logically. See links.
(If this were math, then you would be correct, as if A=C and B=C then A=B=C, but this is not math.)
