# Thread: If a = b, then 1 = 2

1. ## If a = b, then 1 = 2

Are you able to explain what would be illogical in the implication:

If a = b, then 1 = 2

2. Not many competent logicians, then.

3. I'd call it non sequiter. Premis and conclusion not connected logically.

If it is raining cats are dogs.

This isn't anything like an explanation.

You are repeating the commonplace answer as if it was any explanation.

Gee, I wonder why people are reluctant to answer your logic 'puzzles'.

Yeah, well, just try to have a sensible conversation with this guy. I tried, but it just doesn't work. And I am one of the few you did try. Fast and bilby also tried it. Asks bilby how he feels about that. Comes a point where you have to give up. Do it yourself if it works for you.

And, yes, I am not interested in people answering my posts with idiotic comments. It is a waste of my time and I am rather busy.

Everybody else should feel safe.

I don’t think faulty and logical is inconsistent.

The logic makes sense. If P, then Q. Revealing that Q is obviously false doesn’t alter the logic.

non sequitur. No connection between premise and conclusion. , the conclusion is not a necessary consequence of the premise. That is my explanation. I believe non sequitur is just a formal way of saying nonsense.

See the thread Non Sequitur Fallacy

As a logician have you Carol's, also a logician, Jaberwoky?
