“The implication is that logical or mathematical proofs cuts no ice in adjudicating competing claims of fact.[101] Analytic propositions “are entirely devoid of factual content. And it is for this reason that no experience can confute them.”[102] Offering logical proofs about real matters of fact is thus pointless. And, conversely, it is pointless to expect any amount of factual evidence to add up to a necessary or universal conclusion.”
