what is mathematical truth?
The discoveries of non-Euclidean geometries were the results of questions concerning the axiomatic bases of mathematics. Similar to religious faiths, the truthfulness of axioms and postulates are founded on mathematical faiths without logical proofs. But by using these axioms as mathematical truths, all mathematical theorems can be provided with more than enough logical proofs, to which practical experiences and physical measurements can never be able to provide with absolute certainty. Therefore, like religions, mathematics is also based on faith. –> Reply With Quote –> 07-29-2005 06:08 PM #2 Guille View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message View Blog Entries View Articles The Thinker Join Date Mar 2005 Posts 3,278 Blog Entries7 Thanks Given 0 Thanked 0x in 0 Posts Rep Power 52 There is another thread I can’t remember where, that you started, and I have replied, and it is about this. Anyway, just to let you know, there is a part of math which is dedicated to make the opposite of
