He is hated by all things that reason.

This is equivalent to saying:

"If something reasons, then it hates him."

By contrapositon, you get:

"If something doesn't hate him, then it doesn't reason."

But, I don't hate myself. So, according to your statement, I don't reason.

However, this post is a clear example of the use of formal logic, i.e. reasoning. This means that I don't hate myself and can reason as well, which is in direct contradiction to your statement. So, by the method "reductio ad absurdum", I proved that your statement is FALSE. So, blow me.

Can you prove you did this reasoning by yourself?

Can you prove the Earth be round?
No, but I can prove you don't like grammar.
