I would say something like that is decided on the politicians/congress majority logic. If 40% wants to legalize and 60% wants it to remain illegal, they would have the majority vote or majority logic. Is this close or was you looking for a different example?
The drug czar uses statistics, created by the law, against marijuana in order to back up there standing. Say, a 16 year old gets busted with a bag of weed, goes to jail, pleas to rehab. The government is going to use this kid as a statistic to continue with the status quo. It's a vicious cycle.
Good question, is it logical to think that others are being rational when you think that it is totally illogical to think that way. One mans meat is another mans poison so what is logical for one is not necessarily logical for another.
Seriously though, some peoples logic beggars belief. I asked someone why the drink and drive. I pointed out that their livelihood would be taken away if they are caught.. the response was:- I have been doing this for years, and haven't been caught! He was caught.2 year ban and £280 fine, asked him how he felt..answer, whats done is done! unbelievable where is the logic in that?
How could logic ever be the same for anyone much less everyone on every subject? Please explain. I see this as impossible. lol Maybe majority logic can be reached on some subjects, yet majority is not everyone.
If everyone were using equal information to reach a logical conclusion, the conclusion should be the same; because logic is a process, and if someone uses it correctly, it's the same as any other mathematical process.
Example: On a question like, "Should I quit my job?"... Suppose there are 20 pieces of critical information needed to come to the most logical decision.
If I ask 100 people the question I'll get x number saying "yes" and x number saying "no".
Suppose I add in the information that I have a mortgage, or that, instead, I am independently and vastly wealthy. The numbers of yes's and no's would change. What if I add that I'm 25? How about if I add that I'm 85? Suppose I add that I have 10 kids. Suppose I add that x number are under 16. What if, instead, I have 10 kids over 40 years old? What if I change the question to "should I quit this month or next year?"
The person who had knowledge of all the critical pieces of information could reach a logical conclusion, provided that person was good at using logic. Two people equally skilled at using logic would reach the same conclusion. (Remember that logic is independent of people's personal preferences, emotions, experiences, etc.)
With only the initial question nobody would have sufficient information to come up with a solid, logical, answer; so they'd have to just go by their own leanings/preferences.
Exactly. We each are at our own level of logic. What would be the sence in logic if we all where the same? Each is at their own level we learn, accept, choose, recieve as chosen to move more logic... Then continues and on and on, etc.
I hear that.. To me it is the fundamental movement of life... I feel even someone whom could be percieved as having great logic could benifit as well from someone with lessor. I see us moving on planes. I would Love to see the greater majority in divine presence pervading, yet we still bounce off and have opportunities to learn, always.. Point being if I completely knew what to expect from my life every morning I woke... could get boring for sure.
Saying that the process of logic (when used optimally) is always the same is not the same as saying people are all the same. If a bunch of people who are all very different, and who all think very differently, were able to use the same level of logic - then the conclusion should turn out to be the same. That's the thing about logic: It removes individual differences in thinking, emotions, experiences, etc. and instead is a process. Not everyone is able to separate themselves from their emotions, and not everyone has an equal skill at using logic. Still, as far as I can tell (unless there's some really "advanced" mathematical thing I'm not aware of), if a bunch of different people use the same level of skill in logic they will most likely reach the same conclusion.
Agreed. I also believe life experience plays a huge role in individual logic. Maybe if I were to get on your logical thought process, I could truly understand your logical perception of life without actually living your life.
Ahh! Logically, there are reasons why abortion is the right thing for some women, this reasoning comes about entirely from a medical point of view, where the health of one could be detrimental to the other. On a personal level, I do not agree with abortion, having tried and lost, there are so many families desperate for a family, that 'social' abortion, abortion for no other reason, than the 'I dont want it' mentality, should not be tolerated, especially as other arrangements such as adoption can be made.
lol you may have given me too easy of a question from what I previously read. I will attempt an answer on my assumption of your logical answer to the question.
I think you would say that the girl should not be allowed abortion without proper reason. I believe proper reason in your logic would either be health issues that may kill the mother or maybe in an instance of rape. Maybe you would have abortion illegal to those using abortion as birth control. If the mother was not in any health risk or had been raped, possible she should be forced to have the child rather than abortion. If she doesn't want the child, she should still have the child and give it up for adoption if the child is still unwanted. I don't know how I did, hopefully didn't say anything offensive.
I must be a superhero at using logic skills, cuz I am very aware of all teh stuff iodnt know!!! I have to say, the politics and religion forums woudl be waaaaaay boring if everyone had/used the same logic.
What seems logical to people is based on their background and life experience. People in India may think, and if I'm putting words in the mouth of my Indian friends I apologize, that reincarnation in logical where other may not see it that way. Americans think it is logical for everyone to have the right to vote; others don't. What people think is logical doesn't have a lot to do with the facts.
Some say logic is a thing that can be learned...that there are even classes that you can take that lay out basic arguments and fallacies. Some say that the study of logic goes back to the ancient philosophers even. Is this logical to think?
I have been seeing several Christians actually use fairly devious debating tactics to win arguments in the forums. To me it is a little unnerving. Do not get me wrong lively debate is good. But using such tactics as...
