Don’t we “appeal to authority” whenever we quote a Gadol as proof for a position?

Kind of ironic when some accuse me of that (appeal to authority), no?  :)

@aygart
When have you seen me making such an appeal to authority?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Your life is based on "appeal to authority", no?

no, but in general everyone's life is based on some level of trust those who are greater experts than you such as seeking advise from doctors, lawyers,  etc. That is not appeal to authority. Appeal to authority is to use that as a logical argument. To say that one will do abc medical procedure  because Dr so-and-so recommends it is fully logical, but to use it as an argument to someone who is saying that it is incorrect is an appeal to authority.

Appeal to authority and to defer to an expert are not the same thing.
To defer to an expert is to say CM is the expert on WF points and I am going to defer to him since I do not know as much about them.
An appeal to authority is to say I am going to prove to you that this is the case with WF points since CM said so.

I understand that. If I defer to the Popes ruling on what should be done isn't that both?
