to someone who ignores logic constantly.


You want logic? You can't handle the logic!

It's very, very simple. It only uses the most basic of logical concepts.

For argument's sake, let's say I hate cats. This statement says nothing about dogs. So you cannot infer my position on dogs from my position on cats.

I may hate dogs just as much as cats. However, by your argument, I automatically love dogs because I hate cats.

That just doesn't make logical sense, because you do not have the ability to infer from my cat hatred, what I feel about dogs.


Understand?
