Dear Dr Pipes, in the above letter Mohammad Nozzi illustrated another method of deduction in Islamic logic:

To prove statement X follow the following steps:

1. Find a Wikipedia page containg X.

2. Cut and paste some text from the article such that the text that is cut and pasted also contains X. Make X bold.

3. Now say that it is obvious that X is true.

4. Done. Since X is bold, it is obvious. If it is obvious, it must be true.

5. QED.

This method is better than the circular logic and screaming methods because it requires no logic and no screaming. Just bold text.

Homework: apply this method to prove that Islam is the only good religion of the word.
