    Since it was Satan who introduced us to the pursuit of knowledge, shouldn't devout theists of all stripes denounce critical reasoning and logic as the work of the Devil?

    The fall of Adam came from his learning about good and evil, Manifold, not from discoving critical reasoning and logic.

    Ya' know, in order for one to logically critique something one must first understand it.

    Clearly you don't.

    Lucky for me I have you to clear these things up for me. :lol:

    And perhaps in your hurry to lecture me, you didn't realize that this thread was in response to an even more ridiculous one posted earlier in this forum.

    You really are a pompous asshole and that's what I love about you! :rofl:

    Logic is rarely black and white. Logic depends alot on the premises you accept to base your conclusions.

    Yet, there are a few things that can be logically deduced. For example, we can learn there is absolute truth by analyzing the antithesis with logic:

    1. There is no absolute Truth.
    2. Premise 1 is an absolute Truth
    3. Since premise 1 & 2 contradict, premise 1 cannot be true.

    Unfortunately, not all matters are as easy to analyze logically.

    So yes, theists believe in logic. We just realize there is alot in life that logic doesnt address.

    balderdash, the logic is based on two values false 0, truth 1, other approach is not the logic only something else (this must know even the fresher or else will fail in an examination)

    theists do not believe in the logic, because if believed then did not tell so many nonsenses and stupendous rubbish
