A part of philosophy is logic, and all philosophy uses logic. The only thing that is illogical, that surrounds philosophy, is where someone does not use logic, in attempting to pontificate about annoyingly dogmatic views---I believe you may be confusing philosophy with dogma.

This argument asserts that, "Philosophy is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn't there." This implies that the black cat cannot be seen in the black room, because they are of the same colour---if they are of the same colour, then the subject cannot differentiate between the black cat, and the black room, this means that the colour black can only be seen, but not individual objects in the room. If this is the case, then your argument is asserting that the person in the room is blind---the definition of blind is unable to see; sightless. Considering that the person can only see black, this means that the person is not sightless, because the person can see one thing, which is the colour black. Therefore philosophy, metaphysics, and religion can see. Considering that the agent is, "blind," because it cannot see (uses philosophy), and considering that, "sight," is related to truth (in this situation truth is science), this means that philosophy is false, and so is logic. Considering this argument uses philosophy, or in this context logic, and considering that this argument asserts that philosophy is blind (false), same with logic, this means that this argument contradicts itself, because it uses logic (attempting to be true), asserting that logic is false (contradiction). If this argument states that logic is false, therefore this person cannot argue, cannot assert a proposition, and cannot argue logical propositions (I'm hoping you believe that this post is illogical, because your own proposition is trying to falsify itself). If this is the case, this means that you should only limit yourself to illogical propositions, or arguments, and you have just succeeded that.
