Does "Illogical" Exist?
Christians say God can do "anything". Even the illogical things.

They say there is no such thing as "illogical", we are just incapable of understanding unlike God.

What do you think? Does the concept of "Illogical" exist?

Religion is a system of organized Irationality its not surprising their belief system turned out the same way.

They can makeup whatever excuses they wish for their attempt at organized brainwashing belief in god is about as rational as joining the Raelian movement.

the conept of illogical does exist, as illogical describes thought proccess and reasons rather than actual physical things. 2 + 2 = 4 is logical, therefore it is illogical to say 2 + 2 = 5. whether or not god can make the latter true is somewhat stupid, god may be able to do so, but whether he would want to is more to the point.

I think that I believe (not sure still pending) that even the illogical side of our understanding is logical to God. If he is in existence he must be able to make anything work. Even if it makes no sense what so ever. I think that it far more interesting to think anything really is possible when it comes down to it. Of course there is no way to prove such things, just food for thought.

Similarly how darkness is really a lack of light, illogic is a lack of logic...

is that agreeing or disagreeing. darkness does exist, in the same way as emptiness exists, they are just not maleable objects. it could just as well be that logic does not exist, both are human concepts. for illogic truly not to exist, there could also be no logic, (following the arguement everyone uses for the existence of evil) you couldnt have one without the other, or at least you would not recognise it.

Illogic is the absense of Reason.
Reason is Logic.
Illogic is the absense of Logic.

I'll let the dictionary do it for me.

Looks like we are both right. ^^

I searched like 10+ different dictionaries and half said your definition and half said mine.

Oh well

Basically my definition of it always has been "senselessness" or for example:
For a red square to be a black circle while remaining a redsquare and never becoming a black circle, while being nothing all at the same time.

Makes no sense.. and my point..

Someone does something that someone else says is illogical...the person later on sees the point of the other person but yet they originally saw logic in it their action. People always see some logic in a course of action even though it isn't necessarily the most correct thing in a given situation. If illogic was the opposite of logic it would be an equal and opposite action...

I think that the word "illogic" has more than just one applied concept. I do think we are both right decius. It can be used in alot of different ways to make different points. Ethereal and I have been discussing this for a while now and come to the conclusion that it is a 2 fold meaning.

If we plan to have a better understanding, make a example of the word according to your understanding of the concept within a sentence. Or something..lol

If illogic is the opposite of logic, then it is devoid of logic........
Just like there is no light in darkness. They are opposites. Darkness is a lack of light. Devoid completely or not it is still a lack of it.

I really don't see a argument here...

I think it all depends on the circumstance.
There can be some light and some darkness co-existing at the same time.
Yet they are still opposites.

gah..
