Invite a physicist.

Here's why.

'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'

I thought the local pastor already did that.

**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.**

Yea, nowadays it is restricted to a Protestant. But in the old days it was used interchangeably with parish priest. What I am saying is the local spiritual leader already does that.

I'd not allow any spiritual guy to talk in my funeral. I think I should compose a speech myself.

You will be dead? Believe me, you will not be saying much. Also, I understand the sentiment. There will be no physicists anywhere near me when my time comes.

You will be dead?

Like Socrates, all man are mortal.

Believe me, you will not be saying much.

I won't be saying anything at all. I would be dead.

So then why are you composing a speech?

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Someone else will read it on my behalf. What sentiment are you talking about?

Means I understand your feelings on this point.

But I do not agree with them.
