This place is in severe logical deficient

I can not believe how many logical fallacies I see in almost every thread. I stopped posting here because of how logically deprived this place would be so I'm back to offer help. That is all.

ego loss is impossible because you must desire the loss of ego therefore contradicting the whole proceess of losing the ego.

Yeah, there's a lot of questionable reasoning in here.
It's silly.

the possibilities are infinite.

if ego loss is beyond you, it is only because you cannot survive without it.

Arguments are discussed here, if they are untrue or not logical, is up to the objective of the thread and its intervenients opinions to reach any conclusion.
If you don't agree with something you read, you can actually reply and say the reason why you don't agree.

maybe nonsense, maybe not. I try not to judge from that perspective of right or wrong. like I could call shroomism crazy for some of his posts, but that wouldn't fit. it doesn't fit because I haven't experienced what he has. calling him crazy is jsut another way of me saying "I don't understand" because I havne't seen or experienced what he has experienced. besides who am I to say what is right and what is wrong. that doesn't mean you can't call things into question though. and like maia said, it's up to the person to defend their position.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Philosophy was originally intended as a means of shattering conventional or habitual thought patterns in order to break free of conditioning and experience spiritual awakening. It didn't rely on logic, although many philosophies used it to thier advantage.

Logic isn't the only way of knowing, although it's a valuable one.

philosophy nowadays IS logic. that is why many college philosophy courses have changed their name to logic.

i dont have to say things and back them up because i thought you would have the intelligence to already be aware of it. if you commit any of the fallacies you are no longer dealing with philosophy. some of the most popular fallacies are:
the appeal to consequences fallacy
appeal to ignorance fallacy
straw man fallacy
false dilemma fallacy
begging the question fallacy
fallacious appeal to authority
popular opinion fallacy
appeal to common practice fallacy
"you can't prove a negative"
the post hoc ergo propter hoe fallacy

That amuses me for some reason.  Its sort of a "looky what i learned" type of thing.  :wink:

nah. anyone could do a google search and come up with a list of logical fallacies. it's no exhibition of intelligence.

logical fallacies are very real, and i think that many of the people that post here would do well to learn them...

i completley agree. it wouldnt take that much effort for some of these people to obtain a little logic.
