Sit in bed in the dark and read your phone for an hour with one eye, then get up and try to go to the bathroom. You will be "blind" in one eye for a minute or two.

It's pretty dumb really.

Thus his "proof" that humans are dogs is logically sound IMO.

no, because dogs and humans aren't even directly related, aside from both being part of the animal kingdom.

where as "round" is both the definitive description of a circle and sphere.
so rather "round" is much closer to the blanket-term "animal".


plus your example is flawed, it should be more like:
a dog is an animal that eats food, a human also eats food.
then a human is also an animal.

I drink water. Native Americans drink water.

Therefore I am a Native American.

Thanks, going to apply for some scholarships now.

why don't you just pick up a dictionary and look up the definition of round rather than make yourself look ignorant... doh.gif

and who knows, you might actually be a native american.

I don't think anyone was debating what round means, just giving you a hard time (this is kind of a troll thread).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Validity#Validity_and_soundness
Quote:
Validity of deduction is not affected by the truth of the premise or the truth of the conclusion. The following deduction is perfectly valid:

All animals live on Mars.
All humans are animals.
Therefore, all humans live on Mars.

The problem with the argument is that it is not sound. In order for a deductive argument to be sound, the deduction must be valid and all the premises true.

But both of his premises ARE true though: dogs eat food, and humans also eat food. Therefore all humans are dogs is actually logically valid AND sound. thinking.gif

I wish I still had my notes from the logic courses I took so I could figure out what went wrong where exactly.
