Incontrovertible Logic Suddenly, from inside me, "I love you" I said. "Please don't say such things" he said; "We hardly know one another." "What more do we need to know one another?" I said; "How can two people know each other more?" Modus Ponens (P --> Q, P | Q) He said, "If you're really bothered, OK I know you." (P --> Q) I was really bothered by it. (P) Thus, he knew me. (Q) Putting on my clothes, I said "It was what you wanted." Modus Tollens (P --> Q, ~Q | ~P) "Now, if you love me, you will say so." (P --> Q) He didn't say he loved me. (~Q) "For God's sake, what's going on?" he said instead. It meant he didn't love me. (~P) I opened the door and went out. Hypothetic Syllogism (P --> Q, Q --> R | P --> R) I waited for him to follow me. I thought, "If he follows me, it means I must have been wrong. (P --> Q) "If I was wrong, it means he loves me. (Q --> R) "That is, if he follows me, it means he loves me." (P --> R) A logical fallacy (P --> Q, ~P | ~Q) As I was putting on my shoes, he opened the door and called out: "It would be good if you didn't make a big deal out of this. (P -->Q) "But I see that you are making a big deal out of it. (~P) "This is not good at all." (~Q) "Oh no, it can't be!" I said to myself. "This man doesn't know any logic." Rumeysa [Oe]zel
