    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    Luke,

    I have read your earlier post about how you define faith. I can see that the issues you raise have occurred but these are not the norm. We both can agree faith and reason can occur. We do...

    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    Surveys do not settle normative issues nor semantic issues. We should be able to discuss the context of the word faith directly without appealing to authorities. Again having a who can quote more...

    Luke,

    You are missing the argument. I am directly stating your definition of Faith is not the same CONTEXT in which many christians are using the word. I specifically gave examples and stated...

    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    Luke,


    You are not understanding the concept of Faith. You are applying or tiring to apply science. That is you are trying to turn Faith into something pragmatic. If you have issue with the...

    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    Lukecash is misusing the term Faith in a religious context. Faith in a religious context specifically has a definition and science has no part in faith. Most Christians hold that Faith requires...

    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    Sense verifiable means a human can use one of our famous senses such as touch, sight, hearing, etc. I would say you have the order backwards with theorems and language. Early humans had to sense...

    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    You did not read my reply seriously. I specifically stated that you may not combine the two entities and this means count them while separated . So deductive logic concerns with specific details. ...

    Re: Why have faith, when we can use logic?

    The theorems in math can be sense verified if one is specific in language. That is there are no full solid independent entities where when you count two of them and count another two you will end up...
  11. Re: Looking for the relationship between "evidence" and "reason for belief"

    I would say deductive logic fills the gap between science and rational beliefs. Science demands empirical evidence: that is, things we can sense verify. Deductive logic proofs are sense verifiable...

    Sticky: Re: What is Logic? (Logic 101)

    The point of me bringing up the topics I did was to show there are distinct definitions and distinct intent from Philosophy and Math. Thus the two fields are not identical, which includes...

    You are not directly addressing anything I have brought up. I mentioned concepts which ought to be universal or known in both types of logic: Mathematical Logic and Deductive logic. You seem to be...

    Sticky: Re: What is Logic? (Logic 101)

    Semantics belongs to Philosophy and Linguistics. Math may use other things but they are NOT equivalent in content.

    My point is that Mathematical Logic manipulated things such as the original Square of Opposition and contraposition for instance. The intent of a Mathematician is not the same as the Philosopher. ...

    In deductive logic truth tables work to justify syllogisms as well. Please note that doing a proof renders making something sense verifiable. There are no axioms per se in deductive logic where...
