Did you even read what I wrote? Logic is a tool made in the mind of intelligent beings in order to deal with the world we find ourselves in. I'm sure there's a neuroscientist somewhere who can explain it better.

Logic isn't a rule. It won't transcend humans. It isn't absolute.

It is a tool. Created by intelligent beings. It is evidence of an intelligent observer, not an intelligent designer.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

This just gave me a panic attack. I'm stressing about all the c-spine injuries and subdurals. I need a brown paper bag right now.

How do you know it's not the case?

Provide an honest answer or I'm done. If you can't provide a non-circular argument or one I haven't debunked I have better things to do and my ignore list can be added to.

I only listen to what the evidence says, if it has no evidence behind it then I classify it as unproven and not worth my time

What gives you the authority to do that? Drinking Beverage

That's how logic works. I'm not surprised that you don't get this.

Trouble rather the tiger in his lair than the sage among his books. For to you kingdoms and their armies are things mighty and enduring, but to him they are but toys of the moment, to be overturned with the flick of a finger.”

I am my own ultimate authority in the same way you are your own ultimate authority.
