Title: logic
Post by: lizardogre on April 23, 2006, 04:48:46 AM
Say something that must be true because of something else, you can say things that prove amazing things or you could say things that prove things that you already knew, such as;

A flag is made of fabric,
You could say a flag belongs to a country,
My socks are also made of fabric,
So my socks must belong to my country,
I walk in my sock,
So I walk in my country.

These are supposed to be random, so don't say "but the second line was based on something not true", as long as it's true sometimes, it's ok to put it.

Lol, that's good.



I am typing,
I am also reading what I type,
I can do 2 things at the same time,
So I can breathe in and out at the same time,
So I must be able to breathe.

I am a human being,
Human beings are responsible for the sin of two people thousands of years ago,
Therefore, I'm responsible for somebody else's sins...

I am typing the 1000th post in other alternative science,
nobody else is postig the 1000th post
so I am nobody else,
if I am nobody else,
I must be myself,
but if I'm myself,
then I can't be anybody else,
and if I can't be anybody else,
I have to post the 1000th post!

Yep, that one was funny when it was first discovered.

Typing "failure" on Google.com, following by clicking the "I'm feeling lucky" button leads one to the White House web site.

George Bush lives in the White House.

Therefore, George Bush is a failure.

Therefore, when you type "failure" on Google.com, following by clicking the "I'm feeling lucky" button, you do not find my house's web site.

I do not live in the White House.

Therefore, I am not Geroge Bush.

Therefore, I am not a failure.

George Bush is a round Earther.

Therefore, round Earthers are failures.

I am a flat Earther.

Therefore, flat Earthers are not failures.

I am tired,

Hungry is tired,

Shoot hungry doesn't look like the correct spelling.  That's a weird looking word.  I have to sleep.

 :P I wondered who'd do that first.


Energy can move things.

I can move things.

Therefore, I am energy.

Energy can move the Earth.

Therefore, I can move the Earth.


Welp, I guess that ends the arguments against the Upward Rapid Motion theory. It would appear I'm the one moving the Earth.

Crows are black

Coke-Cola is a type of crow

but in the same way, i can prove crows are NOT black by produceing a black item that is not a crow.

Hitler had a moustache
Hitler was a dictator
I have a moustache
I must therefore be a dictator.

Universal affirmatives can only be partially converted; my wife, however, does not understand this necessary limitation of the conversion of a proposition; consequently, she does not understand me, for how can a woman expect to appreciate a professor of logic, if the simplest cloth-eared syllogism causes her to flounder?

For example, given the premise, "all fish live underwater" and "all mackerel are fish", my wife will conclude, not that "all mackerel live underwater", but that "if she buys kippers it will not rain", or that "trout live in trees", or even that I "do not love [her] any more." This she calls "using her intuition". I call it "crap", and it gets me very irritated because it is not logical
