Doesn't that sort of logical reasoning depend on a knowledge of algebra?

Does a lack of algebra prevent anyone from thinking logically?

Why isn't logical reasoning taught without reference to algebra and other mathematical principles?

Can logical reasoning be tied to non-mathematical principles?

Why aren't the differences between assumptions, presumptions and facts taught as non-mathematical examples of logical reasoning?

Aren't the differences between presumptions, assumptions and verifiable facts all part of the search for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Where did the term 'the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth' originate?

Why do the daily newspapers report court proceedings in especially notorious cases?

Wouldn't that just lead to the purchased newspapers getting wet on the way home?

Doesn't a newspaper help to keep the rain off the purchaser for a short distance?

Isn't it more practical to keep dry from the rain with an umbrella?
