In college, I took a course called Practical Logic and one of the first things taught was referred to as logic equations. Here is an example...
If All chocolate is pleasant,
And- All pleasant things taste good,
Then- All chocolate tastes good.
The structure goes- if All A is B, and All B is C, then All A is C..
An illogical equation might look something like this:
If All cats are brown only
Yet- Some cats are white only
Then- All cats are brown or white.
The logic contradicts- it is an illogical equation.
Hope I didn't lose anyone.. ok, the point...
Does this logic equation make sense to you?
If the western world is fighting Al Qaeda
And- The western world is on side of Libyan rebels fighting Gaddafi
Yet - 'Libyan rebels fighting Gaddafi are linked to Al Qaeda' (Telegraph.UK)
