    Here is my argument.

    1. Happy people to to heaven.

    2. People who get drunk become happy.

    3. Let's all get drunk and go to heaven.

    My pastor says I'm way off base here. Where am I going wrong LemonJello?

    I'm not LJ, but anyway...

    1. Not all happy people go to heaven.

    2. Not all drunk people become happy.

    3. Oh, and of course, there is no heaven.

    I can get behind the let's get drunk part, though.

    For starters, that's not a deductive argument. A deductive argument is supposed to have a conclusion whose truth follows deductively, given the truth of the premises. But your conclusion (3) is not even a proposition; it's just some sort of exhortation. Your (3) does not have a truth value, any more than does that movie time jingle "Let's all go to the lobby..."

    There are plenty more reasons why you are off base here, if you need.

    Here's one that really works:

    Drinking blood is bad for you

    Drain the blood out of animals before you eat them

    Let someone die rather than give them a blood transfusion

    Here is still my very favorite argument for God's existence. It's something of a case study in deductive logic.

    (1) If God does not exist, then it is not the case that if I am evil, I will be punished after I die.
    (2) I am not evil.
    Therefore:
    (3) God exists.

    Killjoy! 😠

    1. My pastor says my premise is off base and is a Christian.

    2. LJ agrees with my pastor.

    3. LJ must be a Christian.

    What can I say LJ, I'm just no good at this logic stuff.

    I guess that's why I'm a ladies man. 😵

    Just don't throw any more X's and Y's at me. I can only take so much.
