It's difficult to debunk the pathological fallacy without seeming to argue against its reasonable form; therefore, once it establishes itself, a social fallacy is extremely difficult to dislodge. It's my hope that drawing attention to some of them may be a step in the right direction.

Some critical design considerations with these piers include the shape of the pier (square, round or other) as well as how the posts will connect to the piers. While the piers in the sketch here are rectangular, round piers could, depending on the particular soil conditions, be less costly. Just keep in mind that whether or not the pier is seen after the building is completed will be an important determinant of the size and shape of the pier. Also, prior to construction you'll want to determine a way to secure the posts to the foundation.
