Thing is you can make anything sound logical and reasonable, that doesn't make it true.

Does god sound logical and reasonable to you? I think that logic and reason are necessarily tied to truth. What is truth? Truth is that which comports to reality. So no. You can't logic anything. At least not when using a solid definition as I have.

No but to millions of other people it does. I could come out and say something like Bigfoot exists. It's logical that evolution could have created a mix of Gorilla and Human and it's reasonable that such an animal could exist. That doesn't mean Bigfoot exists, does it? I could say I had hair of the creature and because my argument is reasonable and logical it has to be confirmed by your standards? No, describing it to sound logical and reasonable wouldn't make it true. With peer review it eliminates any doubt or finds holes or mistakes in the claim and confirms it to be false or helps give credit to the claim. Others could investigate my claim and find reasons why Big foot cannot exist, like my hair sample is from a known creature or something along those lines. There is a reason peer review is a staple in science and why they do not just accept things because it sounds logical or reasonable.

Edit: Logic means "a proper or reasonable way of thinking about or understanding something". It doesn't have to be true, it just has to "make sense". Something can sound logical but be false.

Just because you think it doesn't mean it applies. Definition I gave is a dictionary definition that is accepted, not one I "thought" of so mine is more solid and it shows your wrong.
