    Some people forgo the lance and attack with windmills in hand. I wonder which is more authorative.

    The lance. But the windmill is often more entertaining.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Any violation of continuity, logic or even physics is permissible if the result gets enough of a laugh.

    I'm not sure whether I agree with it or not (or whether it even makes sense).

    If possible, please explain the reasons for your position.
    I'm guessing this is the line of thinking of many religious folks that find no conflict between faith and science. *insert something about God as a necessary starting point in order for this to not be a circle, or something*

    I honestly do not have an opinion on this.

    Yea it is. My opinion is that some people manage to transfer their bad taste even onto their logic

    Logic isn't absolute when its paired with emotions. We rarely logically argue, even in science, our logic is built on a hope, a fallacy.

    Logic is wonderful, but as creatures we aren't truly capable of being 100% logical.

    yeh its circular meaning so the concept should be taken but the actual sentence structure itself reformed, its a real stupid question and answer.

    The only thruth is subjectivity. Logic is subjective. The only objective thing about law is it's ambiguity. The ambiguity is always there it takes logic to pry it out, and is why a good lawyer can get you away with murder. A law is a law, but if you can manipulate ambiguity good enough, you are the law

    Emotion and Logic

    We believe in God for emotional reasons for logic tells us that we can neither prove nor disprove the existence of God.

    how do you differentiate a feeling from a thought. Fear of god could make me confide in god for emotional reasons... but isnt there thought behind what made that fear a fear? ( or emotion, fear was just an example)

    Emotions affect our logic, logic affects our emotion. Im not sure if there is a way to differentiate ( besides modern MBTI beleif)

    Logic is only as good as the assumptions on which it is based.
    Step into my metaphysical room of mirrors.
    Fear of reality creates myopic morality
