Law of Non-Contradiction

The law of non-contradiction always seems to emerge. The minute you try to disprove it, you use it because of your belief that you are right and the other is wrong. It is strange that those who use the law of non-contradiction to disprove what they don’t like or understand have many contradictions in their lives. You can’t have free love and have a secure marriage, you cannot keep punctuating things with “and.” In efforts to find himself, man’s desires have him contradicting himself. -Ravi Zacharias (paraphrase)

It is interesting how in law, science, philosophy, and in so many other fields, one must be careful as to what one uses as evidence. A lot of what is used as evidence is built on assumptions that if absent, all falls apart.

Too often, we want to find what supports what we want to be true, but we forget that truth is truth regardless of our desires. We can’t have it all. Some things won’t be reconciled; they aren’t meant to hold hands.
