1 + 1 does not equal 2. 1 times 2 squared to the fifteenth power equal the variable defining 1 +1 which equals 4. Therefore, 1 plus 1 equals 4.

Your math is wrong and you does not make sense. This can be discussed more in the comments if you want.

(1*2^2)^15=1, not the variable which makes 1+1. 1+1=2, not 4. This is the proof:

Johnny has 1 finger pointed up. He points another finger up. How many fingers does Johnny have pointed up? The answer is 2 big boy fingers.

https://www.online-calculator.com... states that 1+1=2 if you type the information right.

Mathematics is a human construct. We, to a degree, invented the symbols, like 2 for example, to make sense and differentiate between 2 and 3 logs. Math is my most boring subject, so not sure why I'm even commenting here lol!

Reasons for voting decision: I just don't understand Pros argument. He appeared to use a equation other than 1+1 to justify his argument. Cons argument is simply and logical to me. It shows that if you take one item and put another item next to it, an average person would count 2 items. The source directed me to a calculator so I am not including that as a point.
