    Smile Faulty Logic

    Faulty logic is more common than logic.
    It is widely accepted as logic.

    What is at the bottom of faulty logic?

    Who benefits of it?

    I have two arguments.

    Illness is about stress. True and established.
    Directly or indirectly?

    Argument 1. Stress causes illness.
    Argument 2. Low tolerance to stress is the cause of illness.

    Question.
    What is the cause of illness?

    Think. No extra information is at hand.

    Low tolerance?

    Stress is a symptom of low tolerance for a particular stimulus. The things one has a low tolerance for are likely to make one ill. Thus, similar things cause both stress and illness. Overwhelming stimuli... bacteria, radiation, chemicals, allergens, extreme temperatures and pressures, sustained negative emotions, etc.

    I'm not sure if that's too much extra information, though...

    Define faulty logic. Science based?

    There's proven logic, cold hard facts, science. Then there are theories, hypothesis', and sorts, that, although may be at fault. Have arguementational merit for obervation, in the hopes of expanding logic.

    Faulty logic in science is a misconception.


    Logic in relations and life in general is subjective to common sense. And it can't be said which is faulty and whichs is not. As argueably all such logic are as faulty or as right as they possibly can be. It just depends on the individual what it means to that person.

    This thread to me is not logical. As it is highly biased and open for interpretation.

    Argument 1. Stress causes illness. = Hypothesis
    Argument 2. Low tolerance to stress is the cause of illness. = The same hypothesis, but with more arguementation.

    The scientific method is based on inductive reasoning.

    Tolerance is about stress.
    Stress is independent of tolerance.

    Bias is interpretation.
