### God and Satan

Satan said.....
I can frustrate human beings with tireless mathematical problems...
God said.......
I gave men the brain to solve all of them.....
Satan said .....
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IS THE LAST DIGIT OF SQUARE ROOT OF INFINITY ???
God said.......
Man has defined the infinite and the transfinite......
Anyhow, the squareroot of infinity ends in 6.....
Because Infinity itself ends in 6, not in 9.......
God is infintely superior to the Satan, if he says
Infinity ends in 6, it must.......
Ashes to Ashes,
Dust to dust,
If it doesn't end in 6,
it never must......
hahaha

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.

Hi all;

See the discussion of transfinite numbers by Doron Zeilberger.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
