Logic

Yeah, I know you’ve got it all worked out in your head, that everything falls into place while watching Fox News, and as long as you don’t actually think about it, it makes sense.  Logic is a powerful tool.  More than one person has fallen under the spell of deductive reasoning and gone on to hold perfectly reasonable, if totally false, beliefs their whole lives.  The problem with logic is that you have to start with something that’s actually true, then make certain that things you can’t prove don’t jump onto your train of thought before you reach your logical climax.  After all, you don’t want to get sloppy seconds from your syllogism.

A well-trained mind will give you a lifetime of joy.  Just be careful who you let train it.

Be seeing you.
