So much for the claim:
"If you use logic, you will never
go wrong". I never made that claim.
The claim I made was "Whatever else you
do, you'll be using logic. There is no
standpoint outside of logic. No, not
even evolutionary theory".

Nothing can chnage one part of our logic without using another.
"X contradicts our logic" depends on the idea that contradictions
are wrong....which is logical.

Relax the rules too far, and you don't just get "something different",
you get "quodlibet" -- everything.
