Demonstrate how logic is faulty.

Logic needs to have an end. Can't use "infinity" in a mathematical equation and obtain a perfect balance to both sides of the equation.

That is math, not logic. Try again. Drinking Beverage

How can one know that is even the case if their logic is faulty? Where does one determine the relationship has any actual value over a delusion or as a mere placebo benefit?

Because it's not about the "thinking". It's about the soul. God is just as much a mystery to his children as to the one's who choose not to accept him. I'm content in knowing that I do not have all my ducks in a row. It's kind of the best place to be. To rely completely on God is such an amazing and wonderful lifestyle. It doesn't matter the circumstance. He takes care of his children. This is what I do know. We are given free will. We have this "thing" if you may - that is known as free will. Absolutely no one can take your will away. You can give it away. But no one can take it. It's a gift that is given to us humans. How we use it is up to us. I thrive when I give my will back to the one who gave it to me in the first place. It's called surrendering.

Easy! I love you!

FFS - really? What a damn flake we have here. I would rather converse with my toaster oven than this dolt! Please surrender to the folks with the van and white lab coats when they come for you.

Typically, the logic needed for mathematical investigations is great while that for nonmathematical investigations is small.

Thanks for the open response, but it is basically a philosophy of admitting submission and going along with it by having it feeling good. While there is no way to determine what is or isn't a delusion, that's not what many others seek in their values in life.

I hope you could learn to find better than with your system than spreading your heart on a forum that won't really impact anything.

You never know... The beauty of a world wide never ending public forum is a wonderful thing. A "World Wide Web" so they say.

Yet you used mathematics for your criticism. Consider

You forgot the butterfly nets.

ummm.. 2+2 = 4 That's rational. I just proved your theory about how I appear to be incapable of rational thought to be false. #BackToBasics
