A short demonstration of Islamic logic

In the past many years this site has been up, we have posted, and even produced many examples of weaponized language by Islam and their fellow travelers, cultural-Marxists.

We even produced a series of videos on it, one of which is linked here.

But this one needs its own post as its such a classical example of an entry level logical fallacy it would be funny if the stakes were not life and death for many of us.

The fallacy has to do with how a logical argument is constructed.

Here is a philosophy 101 example:

Premise: All trees are plants

Argument: all plants are green

Conclusion: Trees are green

This would be correct. If all plants are green, and if all trees are plants, then it must follow that all trees are green.

The fact that the premise is wrong, that not all plants are green, does not change the validity of the argument. If the premise is correct then so is the conclusion.

large set ‘plants’ = green. Subset trees included in large set ‘plants’. Therefore trees, the subset share attribute of larger set.

But here is one that doesn’t work:

Premise: All trees are green.

Argument: Trees are plants

Conclusion: All plants are green.

Of course this doesn’t follow because the larger set does not have to share attributes with the subset. If all trees are green then all trees are green. That doesn’t tell us anything about the larger set plants.

There are other ways that the equation can be done incorrectly or to lead to a false conclusion. But lets look at the way one authoritative Muslim leader, a professor actually, used the formula in Turkey:

“Salah [prayer] is not done by animals. Those who do not do salah are animals.” — Turkish Professor Mustafa Askar, School of Divinity, Ankara University

So:

Islamic prayer is not done by animals

Non believers do not do Islamic prayer

Therefore non-believers are animals.

This is the kind of reasoning that gets hundreds of millions of people murdered over the centuries.

The fact that this equation also makes rocks, stars, plants, galaxies, the crud found stuck under tables at diners also “animals” doesn’t matter once you abandon reason.

Here is an example of how a related logical formula could work:

 

Premise: Ice cream sandwiches melt in the sun

Argument: Rocks do not melt in the sun

Conclusion: Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them

    Non believers do not do Islamic prayer
    Therefore non-believers are animals.”

    “Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
    lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
    you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
    wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
    kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
    young men and women,
    old men and children.
    Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;”

    You know logically what this means?

    Muslims don’t worship God.

    (But we knew that by their deeds, anyway).

    • The Jewish concept of God evolved from the Despot on the Mountain to this beautiful psalm of everything, inanimate or living, being a direct part of God. To sing from the soul.

      The Muhammadan corruption however, gave Allah the Slave Master rule over his pirates and thugs and the ignorant who got in their way. To sting from the sole.

    • “One internet post injudiciously can overnight cause a humongous row.”

      The internet is chock full of porn.

      “One internet post injudiciously can overnight cause a humongous row.”

      The internet is chock full of religion.

      “One internet post injudiciously can overnight cause a humongous row.”

      The internet is chock full of Social Justice Warriors

      “One internet post injudiciously can overnight cause a humongous row.”

      All these develop dissatisfaction and envy. Yearning for the perfection they do not have.

      Amos Yee on the other hand is dangerous. Because he’s normal. Complete.
