Post subject:  Why "logic" is bullshit (RANT)

I really cannot stand people who use "logic" to excuse whatever unscientifically sound nonsensical argument they make to fit their narrative. The whole "it's logic" excuse doesn't fly. People might as well just say "it's magic" or "I have a larger dick size, so my opinion is right" because, ultimately what difference does it make?

Another variation to the "it's logic" excuse, is the "my argument is backed by research" excuse. What it really means is that they're arguments are backed by other people's speculation, without any personal investigation. You might as well say "somebody pointed a gun to my head and forced me to believe it."

I think that I agree, to a point... Although also I may add a couple things:

-Life sucks, and can depress you when you least expect it (Do you think it's 42?!?), But this is my experience,

-Logic can be random and dumb... as we know, But in the right hands (electronically speaking, for example... making NES games or even soldering logic boards onto a Computer) can be the smartest and best way to make a Game or a Computer work. Even a Business for a living!

-Have you heard of these things called Picross/Nonogram/Oekaki puzzles, They are logic puzzles too.

Do you have any example of what you mean ?

And are you refering to people who use fallacious logic in order to bring up fake arguments, or simply to people who mention "it's logic" when no logic is involved ?

Yeah, examples would probably clarify.... I don't remember ever seeing anyone using "logic" as an argument unless there was a pretty solid reason to.

Every debate between the 68000 and the 65816 is like that.

Now I need to know why debates between 68000 and 65816 even exist :D

Because Sega fanboys are butt hurt that I can pull off action games on the SNES.

Ah yeah, lots of ignorant statements thrown around in the "snes games have slowdown because the CPU is slow" ballpark. I thought you were talking from a programmer's point of view. :)

There seems to be a lot of butthurt on both sides. :roll:

There wouldn't be quite this much hate for the 65816 if a judge hadn't decided that Pixar Animation Studios owns what amount to exclusive rights in the concept of a sentient unicycle.

Are you suggesting that people would have a different impression of the SNES CPU if DMA Design weren't sued over Unirally ?_?

Yes. It would have at least led to a more nuanced debate about what makes a system or game "fast".
