Hey, you were the one that said you want Peano axioms. That's what I gave. I also gave the definitions for the problem at hand.
Do you accept these or not? If so, do you want me to prove the commutativity, associativity and distributivity of addition and multiplication or can I accept those as proven from the axioms?(Commutativity of addition is actually rather tricky at a couple of points).
When did they start putting letters in it?

No, it's not. There are written records from over 4,000 years ago. Dr. Paolo Matthiae, Director of the Italian Archeological Mission in Syria, "hit an archeological jackpot" in 1975.
He discovered "the greatest third-millennium [B.C.] archive ever unearthed." It included "more than 15,000 cuneiform tablets and fragments" and unveiled a Semitic empire that dominated the Middle East more than four thousand years ago. Its hub was Ebla, where educated scribes filled ancient libraries with written records of history, people, places and commerce.
They mention the name "Abraham" and "Ur of Chaldees" (the Biblical Abraham's birthplace) as well as other familiar cities and places.
The 1988 discovery of the TEL el Amarna letters shows us that written messages were an important part of Moses' culture:
Link that information. All you've done in the above is make an unsupported claim. Show the link to your claim.

The name "Abraham", or, "Abrahim" does not mean that is the biblical character, nor does the mention of "Ur of Chaldees".

Unless you're suggesting there has only been one human in history named "Abraham", and that the cuneiform tablets were referring specifically to that person.

Hold on.

"Giovanni Pettinato has also claimed to find references to Sodom and Gomorrah. However, much of the initial media excitement about supposed Eblaite connections with the Bible, based on preliminary guesses and speculations by Pettinato and others, is now widely deplored as "exceptional and unsubstantiated claims" and "great amounts of disinformation that leaked to the public".[20][21] Contrary to many earlier claims, the present consensus is that "Ebla has no bearing on the Minor Prophets, the historical accuracy of the biblical Patriarchs, Yahweh worship, or Sodom and Gomorra".[20] In Ebla studies, the focus has shifted away from comparisons with the Bible, and Ebla is now studied above all as an incipient civilization in its own right." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebla

All I'm seeing is evidence of Canaanite and Pre-Canaanite cultures and the myths found in those cultures, and none point to supporting biblical myths.

Satan transforming dogs into homosexual people so he could have sex with them has to be way way wayyyyy up there on the all time dumbest statements I have ran into on here. What about lesbians? Did he by his logic create them out of dogs to have sex with as well? If so did Satan transformed his junk into a vagina just so he could do so? What about Bi-sexual people?

Did Satan also create all the homosexual animals in nature that we observe? My buddy Candy has two gay male cats who are always having at it with each other and won't have a second glance at any of her female cats. What would kitty christ say??

Exactly agnostic means not knowing if deities exist Atheism is not having belief. Which if you don't know and have no observable data whatsoever you either chose to fall into superstition and be a believer or be rational and be a non believer.

It would be pointless to discuss such meaningless for this forum topic with a RETARD who thinks Satan turned dogs into homosexuals so he could have sex with them and that's why we have homosexual people to this day.

You believe this so you are not a credible person to discuss such things with.

<quoted text>What is "beyong" and "ant me". Do you know how to read? Did I say that 42 and 42.00001 are the same? Why do you think that they are the same. All you can do is prove that Liberty does not know how to prove whether 6x7 =42, 41.99999, 41.8999999, 41.39009, or 42.000000001? You can not prove it either, although there is a proof formula. You just don't know how to do it.
So, you are admitting that Liberty does not know how to prove the answer, now is your chance to prove that you do not know how to either.
Go for it. Do the work yourself and do not use someone else's theory and proof. Maye, you should take lessons from Hiding, because you are not even as smart.
