    We often get bogged down in basic logic arguments.

    It was interesting so far.

    I don't think the Rule was explained as clearly as it could have been.
    "A card on one side ... the other side" I would have explained in more detail if I were conducting the test.
    In my days as a computer programmer I dealt with thousands of logical situations like this.

    Discreet Math was a college subject I enjoyed very much and did well.

    Another college course I enjoyed but did not do terribly well was
    "Law of Business Contracts".

    That was very fun yet very difficult for me.
    The exceptions seem to win out so often on analyzed real court case examples.

    This seems to indicate to me that people that believe in the theory of evolution have discarded common sense. 😏

    If common sense tells you the sun moves and the ground beneath your feet doesn't...

    Exactly, it is relative. 😏

    Fixed unquestioning religious belief in the existence of a god clearly breaks this first rule then.

    Beer and 16. However, the point I was making does not challenge the logic, but goes to the ending statements and conclusions because, as pointed out, it is not just about reasoning; it must also consider common sense. So my point was that those believing in the theory of evolution use incorrect premises many times while discarding common sense. 😏

    You don't seem to have a grasp of logic nor common-sense.r

    Just because I don't represent logic with letters and numbers and symbols instead of common sense language does not mean I do not have a grasp of logic and reasoning or common sense. 😏

    When was the last time you used that common sense?
