There's no logic here.
what are you saying?
That because some sentences are neither true or false you can blandly 
apply that to any sentence?

As the opposite of that sentence is disproved by counter example, then 
it has to be true.   :-) Not only that, you provided a suitable counter 
example yourself.
That's logic.

I'm disputing your conclusions.
So far you neither justified "aesthetic non-cognitivity", nor 
demonstrated that it applied to composition.

Don't think so, that looks ok to me.
