one needs the other.

Emotions are nothing without logic or else you will not know when to display your emotion.
Logic cannot be used unless you have something like happiness or anger to base off of so you know what is "truly" logical

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, you're serious? Logic is the EXACT OPPOSITE of emotion! How the fuck does one lead to the other? They negate each other. One does not use logic to determine when to feel what emotions, as emotions, by definition, DEFY LOGIC. Learn what the fuck you're talking about.

They do need each other, Damian.

Logic...if the world was logic, we'd be living in BORING houses, living BORING lives. Logic is intelligence, sure, but, it is not wisdom.

Wisdom is the knowledge of emotion and morals and which to use and when. Logic contains no emotional morals. Without emotion, someone could cheat and get away. Without logic, you'd be living in the forest.

............No. Emotions are, by definition, illogical, the reaction of feelings. Like screaming when scared. Is that logical? No, it will make you easier to find, therefore defies logic, and is caused by EMOTION. And yes, it can be boring, but ofttimes it is more likely to save your ass than emotion.

Ha. That's funny.

There are millions of stories about EMOTION saving people and logic hurting them.

BTW: Without emotion, people would be bleak piles of meat. Harhar.

This is an endless debate people.

Damian seriously, your not thinking it through completely, though you may believe you are. Opinions are opinions, but blunt reasons won't do.

Logic:

1. the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference.
2. a particular method of reasoning or argumentation
3. the system or principles of reasoning applicable to any branch of knowledge or study.
4. reason or sound judgment, as in utterances or actions
5. convincing forcefulness; inexorable truth or persuasiveness

Emotion:
1. an affective state of consciousness in which joy, sorrow, fear, hate, or the like, is experienced, as distinguished from cognitive and volitional states of consciousness.
2. any of the feelings of joy, sorrow, fear, hate, love, etc.
3. any strong agitation of the feelings actuated by experiencing love, hate, fear, etc., and usually accompanied by certain physiological changes, as increased heartbeat or respiration, and often overt manifestation, as crying or shaking.
4. an instance of this.
5. something that causes such a reaction

Damian, they both need each other. Read all the definitions. Without logic, you'd have no understanding of the world around you. Without emotion, you would have no preference or feeling to the world around you. Emotion and logic have saved lives. Emotion and logic have lead to the world we live in today. Emotion and logic have created everything you use in your life.

One can't be without the other. Living a life of pure logic, you loose connection with the part of the world around you that keeps you alive basically. No emotion means no reaction to pain or anything, no emotion wouldn't lead you to really care about your situation, no emotion wouldn't allow a feeling or state to move quickly and save your life. It would be logical to avoid it, but without the emotion, who won't have the proper reaction to actually do what should be done right.

The other way around, without logic, your basically screwed. You'll be a wreck that has no knowledge of what to do with anything. Every situation would be acted out in a overly reacted way, with no real drive to actually know what the hell is getting to you.

Logic needs emotion. Emotion needs logic. One is not better than the other, they're both on the exact same level. People may act out with little emotion and much logic, doesn't mean logic is better, it means to them, logic is favored. People balance it out to what matches there needs. People who act out with much emotion, but don't use much logic, have favored emotion.

In peoples lives, one may be used more than the other, but in reality, people who have favored logic over emotion tend to be dull and distant while those who have favored emotion tend to act out unnecessarily. Those who have balanced it out in their lives are the kind of people everyone wants to be around. Not too dull, but not to much to overreact to everything. These are the people who have found much success in their lives.

That's what i think. They're both needed. Which ever you choose to favor, but one is not better than the other by default.

Exactly Shayphis. Logic is good for problem solving and technical applications of knowledge, but without emotion there is no imagination, and without that most human inventions would never have even been conceived, never mind actually being brought into being. Both are needed in order for mankind to continue making technological advances. Besides, when you think about it, human flight prior to the creation of inventions such as the plane was a completely illogical concept.

Well, since no one can see past their need for emotions to the point I have, I'm locking this thread.

Yes, I know this could be considered abusing my temporary mod powers, but I have always wanted to do this, so it can't be helped.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I have taken the last words in your pitiful discussion! You shall bow before my might! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
