Ok, I'm going to set up a series of mathematical equations to prove that xx does not equal 0 all the time. Some quick terminology: /= does not equal. 8 infinity. x variable.  minus. + plus. = equal to.
xx=0 a number minus itself equals zero x=8 x equals infinity 88=0 because a number minus itself is zero, 88 is 0 as well 8+5=8 because infinity cant get any bigger 8+3=8 because infinity cant get any bigger 8+58+3=88 because of the last two lines 8+58+3=88+53 either the commutative or the associative property of addition/subtraction last line=0+2 0 from 88, 2 from 53 therefore, 88=2 sometimes at least, infinity can equal 2. therefore xx/=0 all the time Don't accept this debate and tell me "infinity is just a concept, you cant do anything with it" because thats a load of crap. Good luck to my opponent.
Thanks to my opponent for starting this debate. "Don't accept this debate and tell me "infinity is just a concept, you cant do anything with it" because thats a load of crap." No, it's not a load of crap, your set of equations is a load of crap. We can't use infinity like a real number, that's it, case closed. The very fact that you can say nonsense like '1+infinity = infinity' means that infinity is not a number. ===== "Since infinity does not follow the rules laid down for numbers, it cannot be a number. Every time you use the symbol {infinity} in a formula where you would normally use a number, you have to interpret the formula differently." [1] ===== This is why you appear to have proven that (xx) does not have to equal 1, because you have broken the rules of mathematics. For my opponent's future reference, (infinity  infinity) = indeterminate. [1] Thanks. [1]  http://en.wikibooks.org... 

questionmark forfeited this round.
My opponent forfeited his second round, presumably because there really is no argument to make. My opponent's equations only 'work' because they break the laws of mathematics. Vote CON. 

I didn't reply because you used the wrong logic, therefore making it impossible to make my point. Vote for whoever you choose, I don't really care, nether of us won, my opponent made totally irrelevant arguments.
"I didn't reply because you used the wrong logic, therefore making it impossible to make my point. Vote for whoever you choose, I don't really care, nether of us won, my opponent made totally irrelevant arguments." I made no irrelevant or illogical arguments. My opponent laid out a set of equations which apparently proved that (x  x) doesn't always have to equal zero. My opponent's equations used infinity as though it were a real number, which is a basic mathematics fail. I provided links to show that my opponent's equations broke the laws of mathematics and were therefore invalid, and he failed to rebut. Vote CON.

Where in Australia you at dude? I spent a majority of my life in Queensland, Brisbane and the Gold Coast mainly.
