Thanks to MineralMan...

I coughed up a word new to me.. it may already exist in the wild... but eh.

Alogical: the state of being without logic.

I'm thinking it could be useful, perhaps, in dealing with certain types.

2. You can put the prefix "a" on just about anything

to make it a state of being without something. The question is whether it would be illogical to do so. Is there anyone who is in a state of having no logic whatsoever who is not brain impared? I think the word that is reasonably logical would be "illogical" which would refer to a specific argument or arguments not the overall condition of a person. Of course you could always use the term as a joke or a metaphor.
