The Ten Commandments of Logic



About Mike

Hello, I am an atheist because of reason and personal experience. I am a father of THREE lovely living kids and two dead embryos, married to a lovely Christian Catholic devoted woman. Yes, black and white can coexist as long as there is respect and love, which is something abstracted from any belief or religion. I do not claim absolute truth and not 100% sure that a God does not exist somewhere out there. The scientific method is what I use to connect to reality. If there is something I don't understand, then it is because i don't understand, not because god exists. In case you haven't noticed, I am a native Arab, and English is my third language (yes there is second language). I like reading the Bible and the Quran and the critics of both of them. I also love watching documentaries especially astronomy, cosmology, Quantum Physics, and new discoveries in science in general, and Physics in particular.

  1. Numbers 4 and 6 need revision. “Begging the question” entails assuming that a conclusion is true before proving it; it is not a fallacy to assume one’s premises are true. You cannot form a sound syllogism without assuming that your premises are true. Similarly, a “false dichotomy” consists of more than just reducing an argument down to two possibilities. For a dichotomy to be false (and therefore fallacious), the two possibilities proffered must not be mutually exclusive concepts, and there must exist no third possibility.

    Good to mention these “commandments”. I have head occasional commenters who had some difficulties with some of those.
