Logicuste (2008 Edition)

LOGIC is an everyday activity, particularly in a democracy. Correct reasoning is a necessary communicative skill that every responsible  citizen must consistently exercise in order to keep democracy functional.

Terrorism and other threats to the integrity of democratic institutions, including graft and corruption, are actually practices of incorrect reasoning.

The purpose of logic is to provide the student a thorough training on analytic skills starting from the fundamentals of inference, the basic principles of valid argument forms up to the caveats of informal fallacies and the categorical imperatives of moral reasoning.

  1. Logic, a very useful tool through everyday living….

  2. “Is something good moral becuase the gods loves it, or the gods love it because it is moral”

    For me, something good is moral because the gods love it.

    Moral is pertaining to character and behavior from the point of view of right and wrong. It is a capability of understanding the difference between god and evil.

    Something good is moral for the reason that Gods love it in which they have proven by their works. To control massive madness over the wicked deeds of people, to prolong calmness and infinite patience, to chasten themselves away from conceivable acts of their enemies are one of the astonishing ways that they have shown for morality among us innocent individuals. Perhaps those factors are enough to prove their deeds worthy as morality performed by such creators like them.

    On the other hand, the Gods love it because it is moral delivered us the thought of their desire for us to mature in the deepest application of moral deeds.

  3. “Is something moral because the gods love it or the gods love it because it is moral?”

    For me, the gods love it because it is moral.

    Morality pertains to an ideal code of conduct that differentiates right from wrong.

    the gods love it because it is moral because we can not say that killing is moral and the gods hate those who kill and killing the people who are innocent are immoral in theirselves.
    the gods themselves always protected morality forthe reason it is authoritative.

    well, on the other side the gods love it because it is moral can be why some believers of the gods will kill for the reason of sacrificng to them

  4. for me, gods love it because it’s moral.
    an act is moral whether people love or hate it. means to say morality is an independent act. when we say a certain act is moral, it is moral in itself.

  5. for me, anything i do is good…
    even those “bad things” are good
    thae only question there is…”is it right?”
    there, enters your faith in the so called “GOD”
