The most confusing way to strengthen an argument is what we’ll call ‘The “Although” Argument’. Say I want to prove that I’m a faster runner that you are, so I let you start running one minute before me. Now, if I won the race, does the fact that you started running a minute before me strengthen or weaken my argument?

The fact that we got the same result although there was something that made it less likely, only strengthens the conclusion.
