First of all ,math is a definitive, linear set of rules. The number 2 could represent two rocks. When you have two rocks and you find two more rocks you get four rocks. There is absolutely no way you can get five. 2+2 does not equal five, case closed.

Too much forfeiture. Pro's point is a Point of Perception, and it is completely valid. The linear concept of mathematics, while preexisting in nature, was constructed by humans. The preexistence is linear to an extent by psychological perception, but acts as a variable by perception. Einstein's concept of general relativity and the theory of Schrodinger's cat are both based on this. Pity pro forfeited the other rounds.

Pro is changing the subject from the original topic. Math does not change because you think it does. Your perception of realty and reality itself ate two completely different things. If I think apples are spaceships that doesn't make me correct; it makes me insane. Objective reality is a necessity for subjective experience.

The entries on this site are aimed at religious belief, but I believe the material to be appropriate for your debate. The entries aren't very long, but there are three and they will not fit in this "comments" box.

I would like to point out that mathematics, ultimately, is founded on a set of defined axioms. And from that set of axioms, it can be deduced that 2+2=4.

The only way for 2+2=5 to be correct is to abandon the set of axioms used in mathematics.

1=something

2 sodas+2 people cant equal many zips

what quantity is 2?

no. it cant. stahp you stupid think-to-hard-about-nothing people. The quantity 2 added to the quantity 2, can never equal the quantity 5. Because 5 equals the quantity 5, not the quantity 4. Does 3 plus 2 equal 4? Does 2 plus 1 equal 7? No, so stahp trying to be smart. ):[
