    It is a question because I am asking "...if we have premises P1,...,Pn, Q1,...,Qm, does (P and Q) follow as a conclusion? ". That is a question.

    It’s a question for sure, and the argument is valid.

    It follows just as surely as the following argument is valid:
    P1. P
    P2. Q
    Therefore, C. (P and Q)


    The only difference is that your example is more like:

    P1: C1
    P2: C2
    Therefore, C3. (C1 and C2)

    That's not what the question asks. You want to comment on logic and you can't even read the first post of the thread properly.

    While fast added other points, he did say that it follows, and voted accordingly.

    EB II, just a little more eloquent. I will avoid your threads in the future unless there is something of substance.

    That is a gratuitous insult. I will appreciate if you avoid the threads instead of doing that.

    More critique than insult.

    On the other thread you first condescended. Then you tried credibility be reference and association with AI along with logic jargon. A subtle insult.

    Keep in mind you recently trashed EB by saying you created an OP better than the usual EB stuff.

    I will avoid your threads. These threads never seem to go anywhere. If you reply to my posts I will not see them.

    You're just making stuff up. No, I did not do what you claimed I did. You believe I did, for some reason I do not know.
