"Analogical reasoning is incorrectly reasoning" is incorrectly reasoning[edit]

The subsection on analogical reasoning is one of the most ridiculous I have ever read on an article in Wikipedia, at least a reasonably evolved article like this one.

It seems that we are caught inside an incredibly tight perspective that sees only a tiny fallacy where a huge section of human thought should be contemplated. We have only to turn to the linked main article Analogical reasoning to see how preposterous this subsection here is...

I am not a philosopher, I fear my edits would be below the desired quality. But if anyone would go ahead and fix that, it would be analogous to a doctor curing a leper, thus allowing the person to be seen for who she is instead of being thought of as something repulsive due to her disease. Analogy is more than fallacies of analogy.
