Logic is based on the reasoning given .

Therefore if the reasoning is wrong , so is then the logic and hence the mathematics .

Even if the underlying premise is wrong, the logic can be correct but the mathematics will show "Garbage in, Garbage out" .

IMO, pure Mathematics is infallible. Mathematicians can be fallible.

Pure mathematics is fallible . Because it never has any physical reality .
