how can things reaching outside the realm of logic be considered truth?

Far as I can tell, people feel there MUST be something spiritual out there. I don't know, I guess it's usually hard for people to be objective.

People think logic is subjective.
Evolution is a scientific fact with tons of conclusive evidence.

logic is a machine. It accepts premises and cranks out conclusions. But where do the premises come from? On something physical and scientific, the premises are easy enough to come by. I dropped the ball, it fell to the ground. I dropped the peanut, it fell to the ground. I jumped and fell to the ground. Gravity. But when we get into the issue of religion, premises are much harder to come by: In fact, there is little objective basis to make a claim for or against the existence of a deity. Without a hard ground on which to found premises, the same, objective logic will crank out different conclusions.

Sure, but those conclusions should be valid.

You can't say something along the lines of "well, this is valid TO ME, that's how MY logic works."

Uh, no. A fallacy is a fallacy.

I dont hide behind pseudosubjectivism, lesserfaith.

Sure, but those conclusions should be valid.

Are my conclusions invalid?

No, they are valid. I never said they weren't.

You're arguing that difference conclusions could be drawn, and I agree, they can. But they all must be valid.

Most people who don't "accept" logic think that the rules of informal logic vary from person to person. They don't.
