Top footballers in my country can earn 100 to 250,000 pounds a week, this must make them mental geniuses.

intuitive knowledge and specific knowledge are logically reasoned examples and logical answers by you.
Dude, come back again when you have a job with 100k $, then you can lecture me.
Your answer is more or less logical. :)

You really going to need some logic if you try to make an argument "a measure of truth is money". You cant make arguments if you do have all the money you want but you dont have words, numbers and logical thinking. In fact, you cant even know what money is and how much you have it if you dont have logical thing. :)

Well, it seems the thread has devolved into an ad hom party. Meh.

If the OP is still around and interested, I'd like to comment on something that immediately caught my eye. The taxonomy is flawed because it is based upon at least one false dichotomy. Being true and being a lie are not mutually exclusive. A statement can be both, simultaneously. Being a lie is determined by sincerity in speech which just means stating what you believe as opposed to what you do not. One can be honest(sincere) and be stating a falsehood, and one can be insincere(dishonest) while making a true statement(unbeknownst to them of course).
