Adam and EveEve was made from Adam's rib right? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #2 20130628 00:19:29
Re: Adam and EveNot necessarily. There might have been some gene abnomalies that took shape when the bone was transformed into Eve and duplicated all X chromosomes and removed Y chromosomes. However there is an extremely low chance for this. #3 20130628 12:33:38
Re: Adam and EveAnother Question: Because they had the same DNA, aren't they siblings? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #4 20130628 12:39:42
Re: Adam and EveMore than that, she sounds like a clone. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130628 12:44:01
Re: Adam and EveHmm... If that started with only two similar people, We have so much variations within just a few lakhs of years? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?'

Re: Adam and EveTo answer all those questions you would have to read the books of the late Zechariah Sitchen. The answers may not be correct but they serve as a useful model. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Adam and EveHave you read The Selfish Gene? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Adam and EveAbsolutely not. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
