Whoever wants to take part in this debate has to argue as a secularist....

To hold the idea of zero as not sufficient in-itself to be called a number is immoral.

abstractposters
MouthWash

By the definition, every member of the domain of 0 IS a member of the posterity of the 1st term; hence the successor of a member of the domain of 0 must be a member of the posterity of the first term (because the posterity of a term always contains its own successors, by the general definition of posterity), and therefore a member of the domain of 0, because by the definition of posterity of the first term is the same as the domain. All numbers do not have the same successor....
