Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Bumpkinism is not a religion. It is a derogatory term for a type of person.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

I am a bumpkin and am not insulted by those people that feel it is a slur.

In the sense that Wikipedia defines it, I am not. But as I understand it, yes.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

For competition, which includes mathematics I use Bushido and Zen. For a practical way of life I have used Buddhism, Judaism, Jaininsm, Hatha Yoga and Hinduism. For my spiritual side, Christianity.

Why do you consider that cartoon meaningful?

So, 10^10 has a different meaning in your axiom set. hmmm

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Find someone on the street and explain to them what 10^10 is. You will be unable to make it clear to them. You can explain to a child what 3 is by holding up 3 objects. That is as much as I can understand about his argument.

You want me to say his statement is wrong. This I can not do.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

His statement is not wrong.

He states 10^10 has no meaning to him. That does not mean it has no meaning to someone else.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

What does meaning mean?

Does this number have meaning to you?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

That is the point. You cannot design an experiment or a definition to show that a number has a meaning or not
