Usually a conclusion is based on facts and observed evidence, but sometimes people tend to try and create connections where they don’t actually exist. However, a good conclusion should be able to back up every claim with fact.
According to a book on logic I read as an adolescent, conclusions are based on “premises”, certain stated facts. Gather enough facts (truthful statements, not opinions) and you should be able to arrive at a truthful conclusion.
Premise #1: Animals have legs.
Premise #2: Fish do not have legs.
Conclusion: Fish are not animals.
This is an example of a wrongful conclusion based on inaccurate and incomplete facts. The first premise shows a fuzzy notion of what an “animal” is and what constitutes its physical anatomy. Therefore, you arrive at a false conclusion. Correct your premise(s) and gather enough correct ones and you arrive at a logical and correct conclusion.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes)
