    No, it's not.

    It's a logical truism.

    It has nothing to do with probability.

    Truism - A truism is a claim that is so obvious or self-evident as to be hardly worth mentioning...sorry I had to mention it

    None of this matters, and adding a wink at the end doesn't make it any smarter.

    Congratulations on writing a few lines of code and pasting a definition of truism from the dictionary.

    It has nothing to do with probability, and your definition of deduction was actually just a form of induction and/or abduction.

    Once again, the smartest thing you've written in this whole thread was above:

    Intellectual - intelligence = lots of thought + no sense
    Unfortunately you don't understand how aptly it applies to you.

    Well, then the google search was wrong.

    And I'd recommend knowing what you're talking about before pasting erroneous information.

    Yeah, I didn't read the third definition and just skimmed over the post. That doesn't make this thread any more insightful. *sigh*

    Deductive arguments are attempts to show that a conclusion necessarily follows from a set of premises or hypotheses. A deductive argument is valid if the conclusion does follow necessarily from the premises, i.e., the conclusion must be true provided that the premises are true.

    If your premise is screwed up your deduction is wrong....but you know what your "deductive reasoning is sound"

    This is actually wrong as well.

    A deductive argument is sound when the conclusions follow from the premises, and the premises are true.

    A deductive argument is valid when the conclusions follow from the premises, but the premises may be true or untrue.
