- 07-19-2018, 03:04 PMIt's just a definition. No, the fallacy, the fatal step, is clearly marked in that wikipedia article. They know what they're doing. A...47 replies | 714 view(s)
- 07-19-2018, 09:49 AMMathematicians (and calculator designers) restrict the definition of \sqrt{1} to 1 so that they don't have conflicts with the principles of equality,...47 replies | 714 view(s)

- 07-19-2018, 07:08 AMIt's transitivity (if a=b and b=c then a=c), a key characteristic of equality in mathematics There's also reflexivity (a=a) and symmetry (if a=b...47 replies | 714 view(s)
- 07-18-2018, 07:52 AMgrapes replied to a thread As the Universe looses space, it gathers time. so it must loose time to gather space. in Space Time and the Universe"The speed of light to the sixth power" is 7.2? So, speed of light is 1.3896...? What units is that? And for 7.2?4 replies | 41 view(s)
- 07-18-2018, 07:43 AMBut, 6 does not equal -3, and 5 does not equal -3 So, what is your answer. I gave you mine, "yes."47 replies | 714 view(s)

- 07-17-2018, 12:07 PMI wish I could remember who it was, but at one point at this forum, I asked one of the geniuses here whether a=b and b=c also meant that a=c. The...47 replies | 714 view(s)
- 07-15-2018, 07:54 AMWe don't You just use a different definition. You even use a different definition of equality. For instance, in your definition, if A=-3 and...47 replies | 714 view(s)
- 07-14-2018, 12:13 PMYou're certainly using a different definition for the radical sign, that much is clear. You may not like the usual definition, but you're still...47 replies | 714 view(s)
- 07-14-2018, 01:40 AMYou use different definitions from everyone else, whosever they are. In what post? I couldn't find any post of mine where that appears.47 replies | 714 view(s)
- 07-13-2018, 01:40 PMRead the article again. They present that as a fallacy, and point out the reason for the fallacy. Your definitions are exactly what causes the...47 replies | 714 view(s)

- 07-03-2018, 01:10 AMEinstein gave a good answer for why the speed of light is squared in that equation. It has nothing to do with protons and neutrons, per se.9 replies | 99 view(s)
- 07-02-2018, 04:17 PMNo, I don't That is not an error. You seem to be unaware of the definition of the radical sign That is illegal algebra. The first line of...47 replies | 714 view(s)

- 07-02-2018, 09:40 AMYes \sqrt{9} = +3 \sqrt{9} cannot also equal -3. Yes. If \sqrt{9} = +3 then taking the negative of both sides is -\sqrt{9} = -347 replies | 714 view(s)
