O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

How do you prove logic true?

You can't use logic.

Don't we learn logic inductively, that is through empiricism?

Don't we then assume it is always true, that is, we resort to irrationality to become rational?

"Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." SPOCK

Logic is proven by the majority, who were raised and live in your general location, agreeing with your argument. The logic of one set of peers may not resemble the logic of another group in an entirely different location. Logic is based within demographics, not knowledge.

Paul would probably say something very similar to this to all the Christians who worship the false god named "logic:"

Col 2:8 NASB  See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

Yes indeed... logic is like statistics – dependant on how good one is at spinning the numbers, or in this case “logic” one can make any argument one wants. Take this basic logic: Jesus was not divine.


Jas 1:13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.


Heb 4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.


Premise 1... God cannot be tempted.


Premise 2...Jesus was tempted.


Conclusion... Jesus was not God.


Like I said, LOGIC can be made to say [spin] whatever one wants it to say. So I agree, it is dangerous to fall in worship of logic.



Unfortunately your example is not accurate. you are comparing apples and oranges. your Premise 1 does not say God was never tempted which would be a false statement, it says God cannot be tempted which is a true statement. The text of the "Mount of temptation" proves your Premise 1 is a false premise. Any cursory examination of "tempt" in the scriptures will easily demonstrate that your Premise 1 is false. 


You are also in error when you say that: "LOGIC can be made to say [spin] whatever one wants it to say." By definition logic cannot be made by anyone to say that something is both true and not true. 



Jeff, our learning process has nothing to do with the timeless, necessary, immaterial and invariant status of logic.  Paul says we know about God inductively....
