Mathematics can be thought of as many things: a language, a tool, a game. It might not seem like a game when you’re trying to do your homework or pass an exam, but for me one of the most exciting parts of doing research is when you’re just starting something new and you get to play around with some ideas for fun. It’s a bit like playing around with ingredients in the kitchen, which is more fun than trying to write down the recipe you invented in case you want to repeat it. And that is in turn more fun than trying to write down the recipe for someone else to be able to repeat.
I’m going to start by playing around with the idea of infinity a bit, to free our brains up and start exploring what we think might be true about it and what the consequences are. Mathematics is all about using logic to understand things, and we’ll find that if we’re not careful about exactly what we mean by “infinity,” then logic will take us to some very strange places that we didn’t intend to go. Mathematicians start by playing around with ideas to get a feel …read moreContinue reading …
Those words were reportedly spoken by R Hameed, the Muslim father of H Farook, 31, above, an atheist who was murdered in India ten days ago, allegedly by members of a Muslim radical group,
Speaking to The Indian Express, 54-year-old Hameed said:
If the police version is true, that he was murdered by a radical Muslim group, then they killed my son using wrong interpretations of the Quran. The Quran is one holy book that insists on and allows the right of dissent since the time of the Prophet. If they killed him for being an atheist, I have decided to join his organisation and do what he did.
Hameed described his son, a father of two, as his:
Best friend. Even when he refused to attend the wedding of a close relative to avoid taking part in the religious rituals, I did not insist.
Hameed, however, admitted that he was concerned about his son’s “assertive” atheism.
He was very assertive. He wouldn’t attend family functions as he would have had to pray there. I did not know that he was part of a movement for a long period. But my wife used to tell me to leave him alone as he never …read moreContinue reading …
Last week, conservative legal activist Larry Klayman alleged that a former National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency contractor named Dennis Montgomery came forward with evidence that spy agencies have been involved in “systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans,” including Donald Trump. According to Klayman, Montgomery “even claimed that these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, where illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.”
Naturally, Trunews host Rick Wiles seized on this claim as proof that the CIA used voter manipulation to help Barack Obama win the presidency in 2008.
On his show last week, Wiles reasoned that Obama must have also engaged in foul play in the 2012 election because he was “so unpopular” and “people despise his administration.” He said that this news confirms a “creepy, eerie feeling” he experienced on election night that “something really dark and sinister just happened today.”
“I know what it was, we had intel agencies hack the election,” Wiles continued. “This is why they’re so adamant about accusing Vladimir Putin of hacking the election, because they know that they’ve been doing it for a long time.”
These agencies, he …read moreContinue reading …
Last week, End Times author John Shorey appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” where he discussed his belief that former president Barack Obama is trying to undermine President Trump and create chaos throughout the country.
Shorey and Bakker pointed to a recent WorldNetDaily column claiming that Obama is directing a “shadow government” and “shadow White House” in Washington, D.C., where “Michelle Obama and [Valerie] Jarrett will strategize to topple Trump”—which is a bit difficult to believe seeing that the former president is currently taking a long vacation in French Polynesia following trips to Hawaii, Florida and the Virgin Islands.
Shorey and Bakker, however, were convinced that Obama is actually directing anti-Trump campaigns from his Washington residence.
“This is insane,” Shorey said. “It almost sounds like fiction.”
Shorey contended that “horrible leaders” like Obama are bent on “destroying this nation” and generating a “destruction of confidence” in Trump, which he said could lead to a “full-blown economic meltdown.”
“This is the kind of event that has to happen—and the globalists want it to happen, because the globalist agenda, the globalist economic solution, requires that America’s economy is brought to its knees,” he said.
Shorey went on to explain that “those …read moreContinue reading …
