    do you think formal logic can prove any notion to be true of falce? or establish a right/wrong for any given argument. Like if we were having an argument about what is the smallest prime number.. of course logic will give us a definitive answer. But what about if we are argueing about weather or not abourtion is wrong? Can logic establish a right or wrong for us in this, and other more complex arguments?

    no such thing as formal logic

    ok i m not a person who can brag about holding degrees in the language english , but i can surely assure u my thoughts about the word LOGIC are pretty clear...
    according to me LOGIC = " a reason that is prooved in an universal manner and accepted by everyone " . it is the measure of the intellect of a race of how clear is the logic behind things.From the arguement i see in this thread it is a desperate attempt to justify FAITH and BELIEF and it being accepted without questioning it coz somehow it is claimed that things like those canot be decided with logic. well of course u can my friends, if u come to think about it why would anyone start anything ? example : a bank , constitution , factory , shop , business etc. everyone would have logic behind it. RELIGION is no diferent , people who formed religions also had logics behing it which with time got dilluded and falsely interpretted by the latter leaders of it.
    I would like to finish this with saying this "everything has a logic" and a quote which is almost self-made.
    " RELIGION IS MUCH SIMILAR TO CONSTITUTION " <-- like the legals and illegals or the morals and immorals there are sins and holy deeds..
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
