There is an old joke that goes something like this: “If God is love, love is blind, and Ray Charles is blind, then Ray Charles is God.” Explain, in the terms of first-order logic and predicate calculus, why this reasoning is incorrect. can someone explain this in more details?
I do not know the answer to this question the terms of first-order logic and predicate calculus. In terms of the logic studied in Geometry, the matter has to do with valid reasoning patterns, syllogisms. The two valid patterns are: p-->q p ------ Therefore, q and p -->q ~q ------- Therefore, ~p.
The pattern posted goes like this: GL --> LB B ------- therefore, no conclusion The fallacy is in reasoning from the converse. @jmh433
if ray Charles is blind and love is blind then ray charles is love
