I don't have a strong knowledge of mathematics and I wouldn't be able to tell you the difference between Discrete and Continuous mathematics. I've covered a course on Discrete (which was delightful, but tip-of-the-iceberg stuff). So far all I've seen in that statement is the idea that a) Discrete and Continuous Mathematics embody different principles and b) that some of those principles are unfit descriptors.Now that's enough to get me on one toe, because I'm extremely doubtful of anyone making such a claim that says the fault is of the mathematics and not the applicator, because while the consistency of mathematics is always in question, it's accuracy is not.The rest is poorly reasoned mumbojumbo about how God isn't discrete. One could apply the words "finite", or "eternal" and "infinite" to describe discrete and continuous values in the sense that they're being described. In all likelihood, it's a purely false application of mathematics because there were never any mathematical properties from which to draw these conclusions in the first place.

Yeah the other boards also refuted it as nonsense. Basically an extermely obfuse version of older arguments. Shame I would have liked to hear a new argument. Every story must come to an end.Edited by: MaesterAuron151 at: 3/10/07 9:13 pm

I read a good example as to why this mathematical reasoning is flawed. It goes like this, if you were to go by halves to get from one point to another it would be impossible to get from point "A" to point "B". Each step being 1/2 way to the next, this 1/2 step can be repeated into infinity. But in the real world it is entirely possible to get from point "A" to point "B". The supposed limitation only exists mathematically and has no bearing on reality.Later

Yeah the whole infinite midpoints problem. I think the concept of Plunk Lengths solve that. Every story must come to an end.
