What is the Law of Non Contradiction?

Law of Non-Contradiction: The fundamental law of logic that slam dunks cultural, moral, ethical relativistic thinking. To illustrate: A cannot equal non A (A not equal ~A). In other words, it is not possible for something to be both true and false at the same time and in the same context.

Practical Examples: A table cannot be both made entirely of wood and not made entirely of wood. A woman cannot be pregnant and not pregnant at the same time. Have you ever wondered why we use words like: yes, no, true, false, etc.? You cannot have an answer to a question that is true and false at the same time; nor the answer to a question being yes and no at the same time.

In order to get a glimpse of this in the practical setting where the law of non-contradiction is challenged check out this video.
