I said it came from how I was taught. I've learned that if I walk into a wall it will hurt me, if I put my hand in water it will get wet, if I put on the light switch the light should come on. If it doesn't come on then there is a reason that it didn't and I will find out what that reason is. 1 + 1 = 2 because it's been agreed on. If someone tells me that 1 + 1 = 3 then I'll listen to their reasoning. I'm struggling to see how this answers any of the questions I've asked or strengthens a faith-based approach to life. Or maybe you have some other point to this that I'm missing?Where does Logic come from? How do you know it's real? Is it found somewhere? Is there a mountain with 1+1=2 on it somewhere? I think OmaghJoe is asking questions along the same line....I don't see it as an attack on my faith - not at all. You both have very different styles of communication. I respond in kind to smeloth - which I shouldn't.Good, as it wasn't meant to be. I apply logic as it's been taught to me I suppose. I assume you do the same in your day to day life. I'm not sure what you mean by your question.
where does Logic come from in nature?
Me thinks your being deliberately obtuse as you know life is way more complicated than walking around but lets apply logic to walking around. I walk you thru the conversation feel free to correct this at any point
Q Why do you walk?
A So that I can survive..to get food
Q Why do you need food?
A To live and be healthy
Q Why do you need to live?
hmmmm ...... to reproduce?....instinct?.....for a bit o craic?....to help out others?....to be the best i can be?....to aquire knowledge?....to admire the beauty around us?.......
Those might be your typical answers, maybe not, Now if you have never considered anything any deeper that fair enough, but logic dictates that you should and even if you have not, and just considering any of the things as "it just is" or "I just do", then your relying on intuition to live your life which when it boils down to it, is the same reasoning as faith.
Anyway lets assume you have considered the reasons for living a little deeper and at some point with them too you have to let go and say "just because", lets take the last one for example. What is beauty? and why do we feel it? Why do we want to experience it? what is the point of it? There are libraries full of reasons trying to explain these things about beauty but nothing is successful, you would have to say that at the end of the day its illogical to pursue beauty. Yet we still have relentless pursuit to see, hear and create it for no logical purpose whatsoever.
For me when you get to the bottom of these reasons for living, they where given to us by a higher power to experience this world (realm might be a better term) in.
My original question to you still stands waiting to be answered why are you here carrying out actions on a day to day basis? If you have logic for doing it what is the basis of that logic?
