I wasn't talking about Logic and flow charting, I was referring to a class on Logic where you learn to discern which arguments are valid or not. For instance, your argument would break down to something like this:

Individuals A & B committed a horrific crime.
A & B are members of the human race.
Therefore, all members of the human race are horrific.


Based on the first 2 arguments (assuming that they are true), is the 3rd statement true?

When broken down to this format, it becomes clear that your argument is invalid.

(Dang. My head hurts from recalling that stuff I learned in Logic class in college 35+ years ago!)
