### If it takes 2 hens 2 days to lay 2 eggs, then how many days does it take 5 hens to lay 5 eggs? 2.

If it takes 2 hens 2 days to lay 2 eggs, how many days does it take 50 hens to lay 50 eggs? Well, let's see. Let's call the first hen (out of two) to be A and the second to be B. A takes two days to lay 1 egg. B takes two days to lay 1 egg. If we continued this 2.5 times, we would establish that 5 hens lay 5 eggs in 2 days....

### 2 has the same value as the value of 1.

Let a = b. Then a^2 = ab. Subtract b^2 from both sides. Then a^2-b^2=ab-b^2. Use difference of squares. (a+b)(a-b)=b(a-b) Divide both sides by (a-b). Then a+b=b. Now let a=1, then b=1. Substitute a=1 and b=1 into a+b=b. Thus 2=1....

### 1.9999... (repeating) equals 2.

This is in response to the numerous 1 = 2 posts with the mathematical error. ****************************************** Let A = 1.99999999... repeating. 10 * A = 19.999999... repeating. Subtract A from each side... 10A - A = 18.0 9A = 18.0 Divide by 9. A = 2 Substitute. 1.9999999... repeating = 2....

### Evolution is wrong

Evolution is the foundation for the many scientists we hear about, the many shows we watch, and the many text books we read. All of them sound so sure and make evolution sound like a fact. How could everyone be wrong? They couldn't could they? Think, is evolution a fact or a false theory? I will start from the being. Life is often portrayed as spontaneously arising from some sort of "primordial soup". There it is ... quiet, tranquil, warm nutrients in a primitive sea, a lightning strike in the d...

### We will eventually see the rise of artificial intelligence, and even artificial consciousness.

The possibility of artificial intelligence is intriguing at least in part due to the fact that we have so poor a grasp on the question of intelligence and "thinking" in general. What does it mean, really, to be "intelligent?" What is really going on when someone is "thinking?" While all of us might have some opinions on these questions, it's very difficult to see how anyone could actually claim to know the answers beyond any reasonable doubt. If we truly did understand "thinking," for example, o...
