"For this reason, if one cares about truth, and if one uses reason, logic, and evidence to get to true conclusions, this is not a reliable pathway to truth"
Reason, logic, evidence? I think that disappeared from the WT handbook for the Writing Department a long time ago. Older dubs I know, will treasure the old books because they were written in a way that developed the arguments properly. Even if the conclusions were amiss, they read a lot better.
NB . I loved your explanation of logical argument.
