PRETENSES OF LOGIC
>"Logic is the beginning of wisdom" - Spock,Star Trek VI
I wish to make clear that I admit to the possibility of higher
realms of wisdom that logic may not apply to, that IS and IS NOT can not
describe, although statement alone is probably self contradictory.
What I take extreme exception to is the pretense to wisdom by
couching various propositions in logical terms, ie IS statements, to
give them the 'credence' of logic, while covertly eschewing logic and
failing to meet the demands of consistency that logic demands.
The definitions of IS and IS NOT are very clear and are not to be
subverted to the causes of sophistry.
It's a matter of professional ethics and common sense.
