In this essay I will explain the concept of the Round-Trip Fallacy and show that it is a distinct reasoning mistake. The round-trip fallacy involves inferring from the absence of evidence of an event the conclusion that there is evidence for the absence of this event. I claim that this is a widely committed and potentially hazardous mistake.
