In my book, a mathematical argument is an argument that includes mathematical concepts, which those certainly are.
Posted by 9spaceking 3 years ago
they are mathematical concepts, we just said them in weird ways. (infinity concerning objects and the universe, and set variables as a "code")
Posted by Buggie111 3 years ago
Fine then. Addition. Infinity. Variables (F=1, U=9). All three of those are mathematical concepts

@Buggie111

I see your point, but if the mere mention of numbers counted as presenting a mathematical formula, then both 9spaceking and myself have violated the rules.

The mere mentioning of numbers is inevitable. The debate was based on trying to prove the equality of the two values without using the various mathematical formulae and proofs to show that the two are equal. Numbers were mentioned, but no equations or formulae were used. I think we both kept in line with the rules.

They include mathematical concepts, which is enough for me.
Posted by 9spaceking 3 years ago
Well, those aren't mathematical theorems or mathematical arguments.
Posted by Buggie111 3 years ago
You mentioned both numbers ( a mathematical concept) and addition (also a mathematical concept). IMO, that's forfeit worthy.
Posted by 9spaceking 3 years ago
I didn't disprove the theorem using mathematical concepts, tho, so I don't lose any points. :3
my arguments shortened:
--the 2 numbers look nothing alike
--some scientific theory
--lyrics from a song

And 9spaceking with a 7 point forfeit.
