I understand completely that you don't want to get involved in arguments - there are always 'trolls' around and it can be upsetting if you're the target of one. But the link I gave is to a blog post and participation in the comments following it is optional, so just ignore the comments section. If you had read the post I was going to ask your opinion regarding one or two of the points made, although I'm largely in agreement with the content.
I was thinking of posting your proposed syllogism but didn't want to do so without your permission, so thanks for giving that.
I always appreciate your questions, because they get me thinking.
Glad to hear it! I value your opinions and the opportunity to ask questions concerning the content of your books, and other philosophical/logical topics. But I'll try not to pester you too much. :innocent:
