Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Gerard Henderson's Logic - Episode 2

This guy never ceases to amaze me. I'm not sure he's ever understood what a fallacy of logic was, or why. Here's a case in point: In today's Sydney Morning Herald, talking about Spry and Menzies, he offers this statement:

"That they acted in accordance with their perception of the national interest, and not for party political reasons, is evident from the fact that it took over half a century for their decisions to become public."

Come again? So, according to Henderson, the fact that it took over fifty years for their decisions to become public is proof that they acted in the national interest. Really? How does that work?

I'd like to see a schematic diagram of this guy's logic circuits. I bet there's a bad solder joint somewhere.

Episode 1 can be found here.
