Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

No. It demonstrates running around in circles. At less than full speed because you have to hang a curve the whole way. A moebus ring is different because you arebanked the entire way. However you have to do a 180 degree spin in one revolution, which means you have to do it on a plane. It will go to 360 degrees if the plane had depth. The infinity symbol can be done on a single line, but there ain't nothing to flip, which brings up the issue you have no radius on that line to even hang the curve. The single line can represent only a theoretical centerline, which means you really have nothing going nowhere. There ain't no dimension to move around in.

Or something like that.

You gotta analyze these things instead of being just an idol worshipper.

Sure it does - to the many physics students. This definition also portrays that same thought:

No, it does not demonstrate anything - except the ability to draw a figure-eight.

Neither does it exhibit an operation or use.

All it does is tell the reader "I'm referring to infinity here".

Which you could also do with the symbol "I'm-referring-to-infinit y-here".

Neither demonstrates anything.

As the West ramped up its sanctions against the Russian Federation, on Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin convened a high-level meeting of his imaginary friends to craft a response.

Putin spent over six hours consulting with his inner circle of imaginary friends, whom he refers to as the League of Superior Beings.

Attending the meeting were Igor, a powerful brute who can deflect missiles with his bare fists; Dr. Karamazov, who can control the world’s weather; and Ludmila, a sorceress whose powers include the ability to bend time and transform herself into a number of animals and insects.

Putin emerged from the meeting energized and upbeat, telling associates that Igor and Ludmila had put aside their usual rivalry to confront the threat of sanctions.

According to sources, Putin and his imaginary friends are weighing a broad array of options, including covering Europe in icicles and sending U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to another dimension.

I don't agree to disagree.

If you agree to disagree, it is unilateral.

Words mean things, Counselor.

If something "demonstrated" infinity, it would show infinity to be real.

Infinity is not real. But it can be signified by a symbol.

Big difference.

Excuse me for recognizing big things.

I didn't say you were wrong - I said - "you can't stand being wrong." There is no delineation of truth or fiction - right or wrong. But you can't see it for this, huh? You have to be argumentative in order to justify the stance you take.

Please don't take what I say out of context. If you have a question about my post - ask for clarity - before you think you understand it and have to correct me.

Carry on.

Which is why I cleared it up for you.

But what he meant was clear--that was the reason to call pedant.
