What the hell, I'll post it here while it awaits moderation.
|Your logical fallacies are showing.|
All objects of type A are both B and C.
Some objects of type D are B.
Therefore, all objects of type D are also C.
Therefore, all objects of type D are A, or
D = A.
The bulk of your “argument” is essentially emphasizing, in detail, how much “some objects of type D are B”, and nearly completely ignoring the question of whether B is a defining feature of either D or A.
I’ll give you an example:
All atheists do not believe in God, and do not believe in a divinely guided morality.
Some Christians doubt the existence of God.
Therefore, no Christians believe in a divinely guided morality either.
Therefore, Christianity is atheism.
“Up” is a direction along an axis.
“Down” is the opposite of “up”.
“Down” is also a direction along an axis.
Therefore, “down” is the same as “up”.
Therefore, “down” is the opposite of itself.
I could go on to “prove” that all Christians are secretly Confucians, all Hindus are Muslim, that hot is cold, and so on. I could quote long passages of crisis-of-faith, why-have-you-forsaken-me Christian poetry “proving” that Christianity is atheism. If I went on for a really long time about this, it might have the sheen of professional philosophy and good rhetoric that you display.
The logic would still be crap, however.
