Man’s Logic is infallible… apparently…
Many times I’ve seen, here on the misinformation highway, logical arguments that reasonably present ‘truth’ and persuade people to think differently than they have. ‘Logical’ points are put forward that convince us that abandoning our heritage and our faith and giving the government more control over our lives are the right things to do.
The real truth is, statistics, historical perspectives, and scientific consensus can be manipulated to say whatever you want them to say, and using the Arts to make your presentation more powerful, doesn’t guarantee that what is being presented is truth. Nowhere is truth more black and white than in mathematics, right? Check this out:
So logically, 1 does not equal 1.
So the next time some expert hits you with a statement like global warming is causing us to have a particularly cold winter and gives a whole ‘logical’ argument as to why this is so, remember that 1 also doesn’t necessarily equal 1. Keep it in mind when a politician tells you that spending billions of dollars that we don’t have on nothing noteworthy is a good thing and gives you a rational argument as to why.
My advice? Pray for wisdom and understanding… and love truth.
Ever changing: Thy Kingdom come
