Yo... Logic has no place in the Dialectic Method...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialectic

"Dialectic tends to imply a process of evolution and so does not naturally fit within formal logic (see logic and dialectic). "

Why bring up Logic if the other people are using the Dialectic Method?

Doesnt apply...

Yo logic always has a place. You just don’t understand that.

You’re uneducated....

Nope. I understand logic very well thank you.
You’re politically biased and that makes your logic faulty here and there. You don’t know how to correct since you’re not a person who reflect on what you say or write. Especially when you’ve been proven wrong.

"Nope. I understand logic very well thank you."

I didnt say you didnt... I'm just telling you that these people are not using Logic that is another different/separate method of operation... that those people employing the dialectic method dont use..

Logic obviously does not "have a place!" in people trained to not be using it...

Here how does your brain work... you say "logic always has a place!" AND THEN ... the whole f-ing post here details how a bunch of people ARE NOT USING IT....

lol I hate to break the news to you but you are not being "logical!" here yourself...

I commented your “ Logic has no place in the Dialectic Method..”

So I was correct in that. You on the other hand are being convoluted having to add information as you to save face.
