I think it's possible for people to recognize the difference between logical and illogical, and yes I believe there is a distinction, but beliefs are blinding. Our thoughts can be so easily warped. If something is said enough times and enough people believe it, or if you were raised to think a certain way about things, it may not matter what "makes sense".


How can you make this distinction if you haven't before DEFINED (based on your beliefs!) what is "logical"?
