Are you using delusional logic?
Logically, "logic" can't be "delusional". Logic can't have delusions, only humans (and perhaps animals and other beings) can.
So the question in itself is not logical.
Humans = delusional.
Logic = existent or non-existent.
Either you use logic, or you don't. Either something is logical, or it isn't.
There is of course the odd term: "Illogical", but that would also imply that 'logic' could somehow become 'ill'. As far as I know, only living
entities can become 'ill', although it's probably human to describe someone's non-logical statements as "sick" or "ill".
So, perhaps, if "logic" can really become "ill", maybe it can also become "delusional". After all, delusion IS a form of "illness", as far as we have
always been told (though I have alternative perspectives to offer).
There's also such a thing as "twisted logic", which probably simply implies that something that seems or sounds logical from one perspective, isn't
-really- all that logical, when all things are taken into account, and may have a complicated structure and non-beneficial attitude about it.
Now I am not all that sure that 'logic' can't be 'delusional', after pondering all those things that 'logic' seemingly can be.. if it really can be
'ill' or 'twisted', then surely 'delusional' isn't that big a leap.
I would like to keep things simple though; in my opinion something either IS logical, or it ISN'T logical. And delusions are reserved for entities
that can form worldviews (I think a 'worldview' is requirement for 'delusion'). But, I could be wrong.
How to define 'delusional logic'... that chart seems pretty interesting, and I do agree that using ad hominems has no place in any logical discussion
- it's not logical to attack the messenger if you don't agree with the message, but I don't see any 'delusion' to a 'logic' that is been used, either
- since no logic IS being used..
I'd say it's best to keep things simple, in this overly-complicated and pretentious world full of posers and people who can't stand their own
'smallness', so they try to become big by making others seem small (which I think 'ad hominem' is all about anyway), whether they have a legitimate
reason to do so or not (an excellent professional tennis player could legitimately brag about being good in tennis, for example, but a bad amateur
player could simply boost his ego by belittling other people's tennisplaying skills).
I commend you for pointing out these fallacies of communication, but I question the assessment about 'delusional logic'. Maybe you could change that
question into "Are you using attacks instead of arguments?" or something easier to understand and less confusing.
Furthermore, that chart seems a bit silly. It has 'american typos', it lacks explanations (what is "Mystical Energy" argument, and why would it be a
fallacy? Is the author of the chart claiming there is no 'Mystical Energy' in the Universe? - I'd say the whole Universe is Mystical, and full of
Energy, so this would really need explanation). Also, they probably mean to say "Mommy's instinct" instead of "Mummy's instinct", and such an instinct
actually exists - it makes women more cruel, brutal and barbaric than men, especially when that instinct kicks in and they have to protect their cubs.
If they pity the 'attacker', they can't defend the cubs with maximum efficiency, hence, that instinct completely kills their sympathy (that's why they
can also be completely cold, when treating men, especially those men they deem to be 'losers', badly and in inhuman ways) and empathy. This probably
explains partially also why so many 'tired mothers' kill their babies and children in the most horrible ways.
And it comes from some DENIERS (who call themselves 'skeptics' - yeah, right.. since when have you ever seen a real skeptic, who is skeptical, but
actually familiarizes him/herself with offered evidence, and if the evidence is compelling enough, they will change their mind or stance about it? I'd
bet no one on this planet has ever seen a real skeptic)? The most ridiculous people on the planet?
Sure, there are more evil people, there are more stupid people (maybe), but these guys are the most ridiculous, non-sensical failures I have ever had
the displeasure to encounter. One guy tried to explain how using the fourth (or whatever you want to call it) dimension would not be faster for UFOs,
because if you take a paper on a table, that's of course "2D" for the intents and purposes of this exercize, and then lift your finger off the paper
to land on the other side of the paper, the trip would be much longer in the 'third dimension' than it would be, if you drew a simple two-dimensional
line between the points.. he didn't ever consider BENDING the paper, so that the distance would be extremely short between the points through the
third dimension? Either he was really dumb, or really intellectually dishonest, or a liar. In any case, it was a ridiculous waste of time to watch.
The Ad Hominem thing is all good, and there are good fallacies listed, like "Poisoning the Well", but some of those things would really require
explanation. Appealing to dead puppies? WHAT? How common is THIS tactic? I don't think I have ever encountered it.
And the examples on the chart are not very good - appealing to authority is not "4 out of 5 scientists think..", but more like "Steve Guttenberg said
so in an interview, so it must be true!".
Denying.. the saddest religion on the planet - right after freemasonry. And ATS is formed upon that foundation.. (Deny Ignorance and Worship
Freemasons seems to be the complete motto of this forum)
Maybe this place really is just a breeding ground for deniers and freemasons, to destroy any chance for people to find the truth via 'alternative
news', like the Internet .. gather all potential truthspeakers in the same place, then guard what they say by letting freemasons twist their words and
deniers spew silly charts on their faces and see how many survive. And then just delete their posts for whatever frivolous reason or .. well, I hope I
am wrong. (I wouldn't be surprised if freemasons appeared here because of what I just said and started preaching their gospel of whitewashing).
But I will probably continue writing here every now and then, because there's really nowhere else to go. How could there? This planet is so
fundamentally wrong and evil that anything built upon those poisonous foundations eventually and inevitably rots. You can't build a good building on
bad foundations, and a bad tree can't bear good fruit.
