Making the rounds again.

     The line of "how do you account for logic?" seems to be making the rounds again. Of course, no one can account for logic. One must assume logic before accounting for anything and that fact precludes an accounting for logic. This doesn't stop some people from claiming to have accounted for logic. It just means that they are mistaken or (more likely) lying.
     The fact is that every worldview rests on foundational beliefs which serve as the basis for all other beliefs. These foundational beliefs can only serve as premises, never as conclusions. Anyone who tries to claim one as a conclusion is either being incoherent or deceptive. Either way, I can't trust them.
