    unsound = based on faulty or specious logic, but factually correct

    invalid = totally erroneous

    In my opinion an unsound arguement would be not a good point made in an arguement. A invalid would be one that doesn't apply at all in an arguement.

    unsound - not well-founded or valid; fallacious

    invalid - without force or foundation; indefensible

    His argument was unsound; it was not based on truth.

    His agrument was invalid; it was not verifiable.

    Invalid-Jessica Simpson is fake because she smiles
