Moron Parents Ruining Education

I have had enough of the stupid shit said about Common Core. Now we have asswipes all up in arms about a basic math problem.
Common core requires elementary students to understand the proper mathematical definition of terms. For example with simple multiplication A x B = C, A is the multiplier and B is the multiplicand.
The issue? A student was marked wrong because they wrote 5x3 as being the equivalent of 5+5+5. The correct way to write is 3+3+3+3+3. The multiplicand is the number being multiplied.
Parents are up in arms because Common Core requires that students understand the proper use of mathematical terms.

If a teacher teaches the class that the first number is the multiplier and the second the multiplicand that sets up the test and the proper answer, Jerad.

BUT multiplication being commutative is a more important concept, switching the order of the factors doesn't change the numerical result AND most teachers don't use the term multiplicand anymore and haven't for years so most people don't know it's strict definition. And, surprisingly enough, good mathematics and engineering is still being done.
It's a tempest in a teapot. The kid knew both versions gave the same numerical answer, that's the important thing.

I have no doubt the terms are in Common Core and I have no doubt it is being taught that way. I just think it's a worthless topic to bring up. Emphasise problem solving skills NOT vocabulary.

They want the kids to understand mathematical terms, Jerad. Only an asshole would think that is a bad thing.

There are lots of mathematical terms which kids don't need to know and I'd rather spend time building problem solving skills than focusing on vocabulary. Calling both values factors is simpler AND it emphasises the fact that they both divide the result evenly. So that's a better way of getting the important point across. Being too picky about terms most people don't use will just put kids off from wanting to do math, it's putting unnecessary stumbling blocks in the path. Make sure you get the core concepts down and introduce specialised vocabulary only when you need to. No one needs to know the term 'multiplicand'.
Do you have separate words for the terms in 3 + 5 ? No because, like multiplication, addition is commutative. The situation is different in subtraction and devision because those operations are NOT commutative so the order matters. Then it IS important to be specific about which value comes first in the expression. But not for multiplication and addition. Vector dot products are commutative but vector cross products are not so the same criteria applies. When you study groups, rings and fields you have to be very specific which operations are commutative and which aren't.

LoL! The terminology gets to the problem solving. Ya see it helps to know what you are multiplying so you can understand what you are solving.
Calling both values factors
They do call them both factors. One factor is the multiplier and the other factor is the thing being multiplied.
"I need 20 copies of this paper" by your logic the student just gives her the number 20 and that is it.

You don't need that terminology. For an applied problem you do need to keep track of the units however.
They do call them both factors. One factor is the multiplier and the other factor is the thing being multiplied.
"I need 20 copies of this paper" by your logic the student just gives her the number 20 and that is it.
Aside from the meaning being clear in context you do have to keep track of the 'units' involved. In this case number of copies of a given paper.
If you order 5 packages with 3 lbs of oranges and you get 3 packages with 5 lbs of oranges, did you get what you ordered?
You get 15 lbs of oranges either way. Assuming what you're really saying is:
5 packages with three lbs of oranges each AND 3 packages with 5 lbs of oranges each.
Your wording is a bit ambiguous. If you meant something else then you need to be more precise to avoid misunderstanding.
When you teach mathematics you have to be very careful to be clear what you are asking and to make sure there is no confusion about what you're looking for.
5 packages with 3 lbs of oranges total compared to 3 packages with 5 lbs of oranges total is NOT a multiplication problem so there's no multiplicand.

Wow, just wow. Common Core requires teaching the proper mathematical terminology. And that means understanding which number is the multiplier and which number is the multiplicand. That means 5x3 has to be written out as 3+3+3+3+3 or else it is incorrect. Period. end of story.

Yes, that is what the mandated requirement says. But, is that an important point that needs to be enforced? Don't want to just be a thrall to the rules eh?
Anyway, we can choose to disagree. shall we just leave it at that then?
At 6:19 PM, Joe G said…

If the lesson is taught and not learned the teacher should just ignore that? Really?
Why grade kids at all, then? Just teach them and don't test to see if they received any of it. Or you can test them just don't correct them if they are wrong.
BTW the point of the post is the parents who are bitching about this issue are totally ignorant of the terminology.
5 groups of 3 people and each group wants a separate table. Jerad thinks it is OK to show those 15 people to 3 tables that can seat 5 people.

Wrong. The kid was marked wrong because he didn't understand the difference between the multiplier and the multiplicand. A lesson that was taught in class.
That's not what I'm saying at all!!
Of course it as multiplication is commutative.
At 10:36 AM, Joe G said…

Was that part of the third grade test? If not then why do you bring it up? Or are you also ignorant of proper mathematical terminology?
At 2:27 PM, Unknown said…
Thankfully you don't teach in the USA.
I taught at a University in America and three different community colleges and we never taught the term 'multiplicand'. Nor is it taught in England.
I have an MS in mathematics from an American University and the term was never used in my recollection.
That's ALL I'm saying, it's not a necessary concept.
Wrong. The kid was marked wrong because he didn't understand the difference between the multiplier and the multiplicand. A lesson that was taught in class.

15 people wanting to be sat in groups of 3 is NOT a multiplication problem!
At 3:25 PM, Joe G said…
I was taught the difference back in the 1960s. I understand that it makes a difference between the multiplier and what is being multiplied. The table example is a good illustration.
15 people wanting to be sat in groups of 3 is NOT a multiplication problem!
That is a division problem. But that isn't what I said.
5 groups of 3 people and each group wants a separate table. Jerad thinks it is OK to show those 15 people to 3 tables that can seat 5 people.
You are seating 15 people so it obviously doesn't matter, according to you.
In the bags of oranges example if you want 5 three pound bags and get 3 five pound bags you may not be able to properly split them up to get what you asked for.
At 3:51 PM, William Spearshake said…
Jerad, why are you trying to discuss basic math with a person who still insists that wavelength = frequency? Something that can be proven wrong with basic math (Algebra).
At 4:15 PM, Joe G said…
William, even third graders understand what a onetoone correlation means. They can even watch an oscilloscope and see the wavelength change in direct correlation with a change of frequency. They see that wavelength and frequency are just different representations of the same wave.
Just think, in three years you should be in third grade so you can start learning this stuff.
At 4:43 PM, William Spearshake said…
So, according to Joe, if two things are correlated to each other, they are equal. Good luck with that.

At 2:48 AM, William Spearshake said…
"Only as asshole would jump to that conclusion based on what I said. Thank you."
You said that wavelength = frequency. And when called on it you said they were equal because there was a one to one correlation. The only way that someone would not draw the conclusion that you think correlated things are equal is if you would simply admit that you made a mistake when you said that wavelength = frequency.
At 3:25 AM, Unknown said…

Sigh, of course it matters if that's what the people want. BUT you don't need to know the term 'multiplicand' to 'solve' the issue.

Let A = the set of all positive integers

At 8:52 AM, Unknown said…

Nope but the positive integers and the positive even integers have the same cardinality because there is a onetoone correlation/mapping/function between them.
Let A = the set of all positive integers
Let B = the set of all positive odd integers
Let C = the set of all positive even integers
A  B = C; C > 0; Obviously the cardinalities of A and B are not equal
And I showed you a theorem (which you clearly didn't understand) that said that countably infinite sets will have countably infinite subset snd that all countably infinite sets have the same cardinality. And I explained that the idea was very controversial in its day which was the late 19th century.
But hey, if you want to be a mathematics denier it's your call.
At 9:02 AM, Joe G said…

That is not true as I can correlate all the even positive integers from each set.

Yes, like a moron you keep repeating the very thing I am debating as if that will change my mind. And you keep ignoring reality.
But hey, if you want to be a mathematics denier it's your call.
You are the one denying basic mathematics, moron. If you can't understand the implications of subtraction and that there isn't a onetoone correspondence because TWO numbers from one set can correspond to one number of the other, then you are too stupid to have this discussion.

Remember, we're talking about the fact that there is a onetoone correspondence which establishes that the sets have the same cardinality.
Yes, like a moron you keep repeating the very thing I am debating as if that will change my mind. And you keep ignoring reality.
When there's a theorem addressing the issue and you think it's wrong then it's up to you to find a mistake in the proof. And remember, this stuff has been looked over and verified by thousands and thousands of mathematicians already.
You are the one denying basic mathematics, moron. If you can't understand the implications of subtraction and that there isn't a onetoone correspondence because TWO numbers from one set can correspond to one number of the other, then you are too stupid to have this discussion.
Infinite cardinal numbers don't work the same which is why you have to use different methods.
A={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,...}
B={2,4,6,8...}
Set A's 1,2 correlate with set B's 2; Set A's 2,4 correlate with set B's 4
So? That's not a onetoone correspondence. But there is a onetoone correspondence (a lot of them actually) and as long as there's one that establishes that every member of one set is uniquely matched with an element of the other set (and vice versa) and that can only happen if the sets have the same cardinality.
It doesn't matter how many nononetoone mappings you can find, that doesn't prove anything. Except that you missed the point.
You can match up the letters of the English alphabet and the positive integers 1 through 26 in lots of way. You could say:
A, B match with 1; C,D match with 2, etc. Not a onetoone correspondence so that's not interesting. BUT
A matches with 1, B matches with 2, etc IS a onetoone correspondence between the two sets and that proves that the sets have the same cardinality.
If you have sets with different cardinalities then you won't be able to find a onetoone correspondence because no matter which matching you try something will get left out of being matched up with an element of the other set. Which is how Cantor proved that the cardinality of the real numbers is greater than the cardinality of the integers.
For example, if you try and match up the letters of the English alphabet with the positive integers less than 100 you won't be able to find a onetoone matching. And that's because there are more positive integers less than 100 than they are letters in the English alphabet. Easy.
The only question is: can you find at least one onetoone matching? If you can then the sets 'are the same size'. If you can't then the sets are different sizes. That's it.
Your use of 'set subtraction' is NOT a onetoone correspondence so it doesn't prove anything.
At 9:55 AM, Joe G said…
Remember, we're talking about the fact that there is a onetoone correspondence which establishes that the sets have the same cardinality.
So just ignore the fact that there is more than one correspondence? What a desperate loser you are.
When there's a theorem addressing the issue and you think it's wrong then it's up to you to find a mistake in the proof.
I found the mistake it's in the 19th century way they looked at infinity. You are too stupid to understand that point.
Infinite cardinal numbers don't work the same which is why you have to use different methods.
Your bald assertion isn't an argument.

With wavelength and frequency there is only one. If you have more than one way to correlate two different things then there isn't a onetoone correspondence.
At 10:19 AM, Unknown said…

It's only the onetoone correspondences that tell you anything about the cardinality of sets as is clearly laid out in any textbook on Set Theory. And that's a proper textbook like the classic by Irving Kaplansky.
I found the mistake it's in the 19th century way they looked at infinity. You are too stupid to understand that point.
Nope, There's no fault with the proof. You can' find one and neither can anyone else.
You're just making assertions and you don't understand the mathematics.
Your bald assertion isn't an argument.
It's not a bald assertion. Read a Set Theory textbook.
You are the one making bald assertions which you can't back up with references or examples in textbooks.
With wavelength and frequency there is only one.
Nope. First of all, with wavelength and frequency there is more than one correspondence depending on the speed of the wave. AND some waves travel at different speeds in different mediums. The speed of light is only a constant in a vacuum. The speed of sound is different in air and water and solid objects. Give a fixed speed then yes, there is only one correspondence between wavelength and frequency for a give wave type.
If you have more than one way to correlate two different things then there isn't a onetoone correspondence.
That is incorrect. We agree that the set of letters in the English alphabet and the set of positive integers from 1 to 26 inclusive have the same cardinality. And we can show a onetoone correspondence between the sets as you would expect. BUT there are other onetoone correspondences AND there are NONonetoone correspondences and yet the sets are still the same size. As long as you have one onetoone matching the sets have the same cardinality.
For some reason you just don't get the concept. Don't feel bad, lots of folks don't. And since you're not a mathematician or a teacher of mathematics or someone writing about mathematics then it doesn't matter.
At 10:59 AM, Joe G said…

Dumbass it isn't a onetoone correspondence if there is more than one way to match the elements.

Nice projection.

Nope.
Yes, there is.
First of all, with wavelength and frequency there is more than one correspondence depending on the speed of the wave.
Imbecile all waves have one and only one frequency and one and only one wavelength.
If you have more than one way to correlate two different things then there isn't a onetoone correspondence.
That is incorrect.
It is quite correct. Your ignorance is neither an argument nor a refutation.
For some reason you just don't get the concept.

At 11:54 AM, Unknown said…

That just isn't true at all. You should really read the definitions of things before you make statements about them. Look at my example of the letters of the alphabet and the numbers 1 to 26. Lots of ways to match them up, some are onetoone. And the sets are definitely the same size.
Nice projection.
Well I'm sorry to say but it's true that you just don't grasp the mathematical constructs. You don't understand theorems I link to, you can't find any support for your point of view.
Imbecile all waves have one and only one frequency and one and only one wavelength.
Um . . . sound wave have many different frequencies and wavelengths for the same speed. I agree that a particular sound wave travelling through a uniform medium at a fixed rate will have one frequency and one wavelength.
It is quite correct. Your ignorance is neither an argument nor a refutation.
You're the one who is ignorant of a large body of mathematics. You haven't taken the courses or read the books.
I'm sorry but you continue to display an ignorance of the mathematics and an arrogance for your own unsupported and unused notions. It's not really worth discussing it with you anymore since you continue to deny facts and theorems that are handed to you on a plate. And by this point you'll never admit you were wrong because doing so would make you look very foolish indeed.
If you don't believe me then read a book or ask someone who knows about things like this that you trust. Dr Dembski, Dr Berlinski or Dr Spetner will do. See what they say. I doubt you will ask because you are either too arrogant to think you have to or too afraid that they will tell you you are wrong.

You are sorry and you didn't even understand the mathematical concept of multiplicand.

Exactly each specific wave has one and only one frequency which has a onetoone correspondence to one and only one wavelength.
You're the one who is ignorant of a large body of mathematics.
No, asswipe, I disagree with one small, insignificant and outdated concept. One that no one uses for anything.
You have serious issues, Jerad. But I understand why you would want to try to make a mountain out of this. And I understand why you would want to cling to 19th century concepts.
Good luck with that

That is not correct. I understand it perfectly well, I just don't think it needs to be taught.

Your experience of what is and what is not used is extremely limited. Pick up any Calculus textbook and you'll see infinity all over it. Measure theory uses it all the time. Like most people, your knowledge of mathematics is very limited. There's no shame it that as long as you realise it.

Go to the closest university book store and look through the graduate level mathematics textbooks. It will look like a foreign language because there are literally centuries of concepts you haven't seen or used. But that doesn't make it all unimportant or outdated. Remember, only mathematics has theorems.
At 4:49 PM, Unknown said…

It's pertinent to your point that if there are more than one mapping/correspondence then there isn't a onetoone correspondence.

Just because I don't think it's necessary doesn't mean I don't understand it. But you're welcome to flog that dead horse as long as you like if it makes you feel better.
No, asswipe, I disagree with one small, insignificant and outdated concept. One that no one uses for anything.
And you've just shown how uninformed and unaware of modern mathematics you are. Well done.

You really shouldn't try to compete on topics you have so little knowledge of. Your call but I can't imagine why you want to look so ignorant.
But, you can always prove me wrong by finding any support for your views in a textbook or academic research paper. You've not managed that in the past so I'm guessing it's not going to happen anytime soon.
So, let's summarise . . .
You've got no support for your views.
You can't defend your views when questioned.
You refuse to accept decades of mathematics based on a concept you think is worthless.
You deny any and all attempts to show you the usefulness of the concepts you can't grasp.
Conclusion: no point in arguing with you any more. You don't get it. You don't want to get it. You refuse to learn.
Fortunately because you're not a mathematics teacher or researcher or writer it doesn't matter that you've got a completely incorrect view of infinity. AND no one is going to care.
So, time to quit trying to help you.

Not at all. It's just a special kind of mapping. Like I said, clearly you don't get the concepts so it's not really worth trying to convince you anymore.
It needs to be taught so that people will understand it.
Not if it's not used or necessary.
Your intellect is extremely limited.
Maybe. But I took a lot more math courses than you have. I've taught a lot more math courses than you have I've sat in a lot more graduate level seminars than you have. My Erdos number is a lot lower than yours.
I don't have an issue with infinity you ignorant fucknut.
Clearly you do since you don't know how to deal with it according to accepted mathematical formulations.
Why is it that every time I explain the issue you always change it to something else?
I don't. That's you not understanding the material. Like I said, it's not really worth pursuing this anymore. You just don't get it.
That is all YOU do, asshole.
But at least my understanding is consistent with over a century of mathematical research and work.
Cuz an ignorant coward like you sez so? LoL!
No because any mathematician will tell you that your ideas are wrong. Any textbook on Set Theory will tell you that you are wrong. If you bothered to read and try and understand the material online that I've linked to you would be told that you are wrong. If I disappeared tomorrow you will still be wrong. It's not me, it's the truth. You are wrong.
And yet I have supported them.
Nope, you can't answer some basic questions about your 'system'. I know because I asked you before and you bailed.
And yet I have defended my views when asked relevant questions.
Nope, do you want me to repeat them? Here's one: what's the cardinality of the primes? Or: what's the cardinality of the set of perfect squares and perfect cubes? Or: what's the cardinality of the set of all fractions whose numerator and denominator are integers? Or: what's the cardinality of the irrational numbers? Or: what's the cardinality of the imaginary numbers?
Now you are just a lying bitch.
No, it's true. You do reject decades of established mathematics. Many times over.
Might as well keep the lies rolling.
You do and have rejected any and all attempts to show you how such concepts are useful.
You are a pathetic piece of shit, Jerad.
At least I'm not a denialist about well established mathematical concepts and theorems. At least I don't look like a fool because I make ridiculous claims that I have found some basic truths that over a century of mathematicians were too stupid to realise. At least I have read the books and taken the classes and bothered to learn the material before I tried to claim I knew more than everyone else.
Like I've said many times now: it doesn't matter that you are deluded about such things: you don't teach mathematics, you don't write about mathematics, you don't do mathematical research, you've never attempted to get any of your ideas confirmed by working mathematicians, you haven't been able to find any confirmation of your ideas at all, no one is using your ideas. Basically, you've just made up something and you just can't accept that you're wrong even after it's been pointed out to you time and time again.
And you expect people to take your seriously about ID and IC when you can't even accept noncontroversial topics like the mathematics of countably infinite sets?

Jerad, you are a pieceofshiot coward and a pathological liar.
Why is it that every time I explain the issue you always change it to something else?
Always. For example I am only disagreeing with the insignificant concept that all countably infinite sets have the same cardinality and you change it to saying I didn't understand infinity, when I clearly understand it better than you. You think that just because the concept of infinity is useful that saying countably infinite sets having the same cardinality is also useful.
The mathematics of countably infinite sets supports my claim set subtraction is still part of mathematics, asshole.

Since you haven't taken years and years of mathematics course as I have and since you haven't taught mathematics for years and years as I have I'm just going to take this as a severely uninformed opinion.
Why is it that every time I explain the issue you always change it to something else?
Because you don't understand the concepts we're discussion.
Always. For example I am only disagreeing with the insignificant concept that all countably infinite sets have the same cardinality
Which is NOT an insignificant concept and you're saying so betrays your ignorance. As anyone who has a degree in mathematics will tell you and it is pretty obvious just reading a few Wikipedia pages.
and you change it to saying I didn't understand infinity,
Obviously true or you wouldn't make the completely unsupported and wrong arguments you make.
when I clearly understand it better than you.
A belief for which you can find no academic support at all. AND you can't even defend your own statements!! For example: in your system what is the 'relative' cardinality of the prime numbers? OR: what is the 'relative' cardinality of the set of perfect cubes and perfect 4th powers? OR: what is the 'relative' cardinality of the set of all fractions made up of integer numerators and denominators? OR: what is the 'relative' cardinality of the real numbers? OR: what is the 'relative' cardinality of the irrational numbers?
IF you really did understand infinite cardinal numbers you'd be able to answer all these questions easily. But you can't so you DO NOT UNDERSTAND infinite cardinal numbers. And any claims you make that you do just make you look foolish and arrogant. It's your call.
You think that just because the concept of infinity is useful that saying countably infinite sets having the same cardinality is also useful.
Again, you display your complete ignorance of 20th century mathematics. Saves me the trouble of having to point it out.
The mathematics of countably infinite sets supports my claim set subtraction is still part of mathematics, asshole.
Icing on my cake. You can't help but dig your mathematical grave deeper and deeper.
AND, if you think you are correct then find some academic support for your views. I've asked you to do this time and time again and you've failed every time. Do you think you can win because I might eventually give up reminding you and everyone else that no one else supports your view of infinite cardinal numbers? Do you really think you can win by being stubborn? Do you think you can win by dodging questions?

You can't find any academic support for your views tat saying countably infinite sets have the same cardinality is of any use. You are a bluffing coward.
In the past I suggested you read some Wikipedia pages which discuss the importance of the whole concept of infinities and infinite cardinal numbers and that the cardinality of the integers is the smallest infinite cardinal number and there were some worked out examples of other sets having the same cardinality as the positive integers. And the articles had references and links to other articles and books and online resources. That's a lot of material for such useless concepts don't you think? Or maybe you just don't understand the mathematics or the references or the importance it all has to the foundations of modern mathematics. Whatever is the truth you continual show off your ignorance and your refusal to learn something new or to admit you are wrong. And this is aside from the fact that you can't defend your alternate position by answering some questions or finding any kind of support like someone else using your methods.

It's not a claim as I've said before.
Set theory studies possible cardinalities. Set theory is the basis for modern mathematics. Modern mathematics would look much different if there were different 'sizes' of countably infinite sets. In fact, having different sizes of countably infinite makes no sense.
The section of this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counting discusses the basic idea of a onetoone correspondence and the basics of infinite cardinals
This page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncountable_set discusses conditions for a set to be uncountable and some ramifications to set theory (the discussion of the Axiom of Choice).
This page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilbert%27s_paradox_of_the_Grand_Hotel discusses how Hilbert's Grand Hotel paradox is resolved using Cantor's analysis of transfinite numbers. So, again, if all countable sets were NOT the same size then mathematics would look and behave much differently.
And this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countable_set points out that the minimal model of set theory is countable. So if countable numbers behaved differently then set theory would be different and mathematics would be different. If mathematics were different then quantum theory and the theory of relativity and such like would be different. Every your smart phone has to account for relativity in the way it utilises GPS signals.
I've told you over and over again that Set Theory is foundational to the construction of modern mathematics. While the actual math might be beyond you it's clear from even these few articles that Set Theory would look much different if there were different sizes of countably infinite sets. I'm not saying it's a concept that needs to be taught to undergraduates. I'm not saying that engineers use the concept on a daily basis. I'm saying that 150 years ago before Cantor's ideas took hold the basis for higher mathematics was not firmly grounded. And if you were right and he was wrong then modern mathematics would look very different today than it does. So, it matters. It matters a lot. And if you still insist on saying it's a worthless concept then you'll never be more than a mathematical technician; one who can learn to follow a rule but who doesn't really understand the underlying principles. And if you don't understand the underlying principles then you shouldn't pretend to know more than people who do.
Take a 300 level set theory course sometime if you don't believe me. Or even just buy a text book on set theory. One that discusses the Axiom of Choice and Zorn's lemma and the Well Ordering Principle.
This page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axiom_of_choice discusses the Axiom of Choice, some of its equivalents and how it affects mathematics. Pay particular attention to the section which discusses how different areas of mathematics are affected by aspects of the Axiom of Choice.

In fact, having different sizes of countably infinite makes no sense.
It makes perfect sense. It is counterintuitive to say they all have the same cardinalities. That is in all the textbooks. Loser.
You are so fucking full of shit, Jerad. No one uses the concept that the cardinality of countably infinite sets are the same. It doesn't have any utility and you prove that every time to try to show otherwise.
I've told you over and over again that Set Theory is foundational to the construction of modern mathematics.
And yet mathematics did fine without it. And the cardinality of infinite sets is not a foundation of mathematics.
Countably infinite sets can have different cardinalities for the same reason that uncountably infinite sets have a different cardinality than countably infinite sets the density of elements in the sets. And nothing is phased by that except textbooks.

Confirming again that you are ignorant of modern mathematics. Objects don't have to be physical. Not in mathematics. But you don't get modern mathematics.
In the end, your inability to keep your mouth shut about things you know nothing about will just serve to make people question your stance on everything since they will see you denying uncontroversial and accepted work and research. If that's the impression you want to give then you're doing a good job.

Also no one can collect infinite objects, not even numbers. That you think otherwise proves that you are an ignorant ass.
Here's an infinite collection: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5 . . . . }
What were you going to do, pick them onebyone out of a hat? Higher mathematics was developed as people gained greater and greater abilities of abstraction. Looks like you never got that far.
And finally I know I could easily convince the masses of my idea before you could could convince them that cantor was right.
Well, the mathematicians have already decided as have the physicists and the chemists. Most biologists I've met kind of get Cantor's work as well. Who cares what people who haven't studied the work think? It doesn't matter what I think about accounting, I'm not an accountant and if I offered up some dumbass theory about accounting then the people who do know would be completely right to make fun of me.
You don't get to be right just by making something up. It has to be tested and considered and poked and prodded. Which is what has happened with Cantor's ideas. .

I already replied to these comments. If you can't be bothered anymore why not just quit? First you might want to address some of questions I've asked you about your 'relative cardinality' system. That is . . .
What is the relative cardinality of the primes compared to the positive integers?
What is the relative cardinality of the set of all perfect cubes and perfect 4th powers?
Is there a smallest infinite cardinality? If yes what is it? If not then how can there be an infinite sequence of decreasing infinite cardinalities?
AND, again, what makes you think that you, who hasn't even passed multivariable calculus think that you understand this material well enough to claim that you are right and over a century of mathematicians are wrong? Especially when you can't defend your own alternative.

Not sure what 'number' he was looking for . . . alephnought is not a number and what else could it be? I think he was just making something up again without any support or worked out examples.
And he never did answer how his system evaluates the relative cardinalities of the primes. You'd think he could handle that since the primes are a basic set any child can understand.

http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/Georg_Cantor.aspx (especially the second half of the article)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Cantor
But, as I've already said, your denying what is easily verifiable and no longer controversial just illuminates how out of touch you are with mathematical thinking. Fortunately it doesn't matter since you don't teach mathematics or publish papers or textbooks. In fact, no one takes your system of relative countability seriously and you refuse to accept that you are wrong. So be it, your call.

But I tell you what you are a cowardly wanker who can only follow. And I will only accept that I am incorrect when someone can actually demonstrate such a thing. You have failed, miserably, to do so.
Two counters, one counting every second and one counting every other second. Both represent infinite sets. One counter will always have a higher count than the other, forever, ie for infinity. Not even Cantor can get around that fact of life.

Ah well, it doesn't matter anyway. You can stay ignorant of modern mathematics since no one listens to your version anyway.

You've shown over and over again that you don't understand what Cantor was saying. That's fine, not everyone gets it. But that doesn't make you right. You really should take a proper Set Theory course before you start spouting off stuff that is incorrect and unsupported.
Best just to leave it for now and stop embarrassing yourself further. That's what I think.
And don't keep asking for references if you can't understand them or deny them. At some point it is down to you to educate yourself regarding the current state of understanding. It's not down to the world to present it all to you on a plate in a form that you will understand.
Like I said, best to leave it alone at this point.

I did take a real Set Theory course among many, many other university level mathematics courses. I understand what Cantor was getting at. You don't which is fine. But you shouldn't pretend to have some great insight when your view is unused and unsupported. Like I've already said, no one takes you even remotely seriously so it doesn't matter what you think.

I will stop posting references that you can't grasp. But that's not going to leave much since you seem to need everything explained on a elementary school level. I tell you what, since you refuse to read a book about real Set Theory or take a course and you can't understand clearly written discussions of the material let's just forget the whole thing. You can just sit there thinking you're so much smarter than thousands upon thousands of mathematicians but no one else in the world thinks so. The rest of us will get on with Calculus and Differential Equations and Linear Algebra and Topology and Number Theory and Combinatorics and Measure Theory and Abstract Algebra and Graph Theory and a ton of other mathematical topics you've never even heard of. Deal?

It's not my fault your level of mathematical comprehension is about grade level 4. My references are mainstream and noncontroversial. Cantor's work is part of the basis of modern mathematics as was clearly stated. No one that I know of, except you, doubts it at all. You're just a crank who likes winding people up with dufus ideas that have no support or use.
Cantor's view on countably infinite sets having the same cardinality is unused.
The opinion of someone who hasn't taken the courses doesn't count. You don't have a clue what modern mathematics is and you keep showing that that is the case.

I will look for references about Cantor's work written at a 4th grade level but I'm not hopeful.

Advanced mathematics can only be simplified so much and then it's your job to try and catch up. I guess you just can't do that.

What a handwaving bunch of BS. 'given a provisional reference', what does that mean? It means you don't have a bijection and so you can't use your system. And you can't find an appropriate bijection.
More than once above you said something like:
I have said what the cardinality of primes is. You're just too much of an ignorant coward to understand it.
Loof for yourself. I copied that directly from one of your comments.

You sure don't have a system even though you think you understand infinity better than Cantor. Oh you've made lots of arrogant boasts that you can't uphold. Your example is meaningless because all you're doing is saying: the relative cardinality of the primes is going to be like the relative cardinality of the multiples of two except . . . I don't know what to divide by. And that is the whole point: your approach depends on being able to easily find a simple function that maps the integers to the second set. And you can't do that with the primes. Which is why your approach is going to fail.
Go back and look for yourself. I know I did it, you are the one who is doubting it. And I don't care about your ignorance as your ignorance is not an argument.
Yeah, yeah. You're inability to come up with something is all the argument I need to trash your approach.
You arrogantly claim you understand infinity better than over a century of mathematicians and you provide some basic, simple examples but when someone asks you about something a bit harder to track you quickly backpeddle and whine and say you haven't actually got a system. Despite making all kinds of grandiose claims about having some great insight.
And, the most telling bit . . . just like your ID buddies, you're doing absolute shit to develop or defend your ideas. You can't even look up and understand the work that has already been done. IF you really cared about this prime density issue you would have checked out the prime number theorem. But you haven't because, when it comes down to it, it's not about discovering some great, unrealised truth about mathematics. You don't really give a shit about that. All you care about is trying to shout down people who disagree with you about evolutionary theory.
Accepting Cantor's work would not have hurt (or helped) your arguments regarding biological development. You just thought: those evoTards think one way so I'm going to take another view point. And now you can't follow through and uphold your claims.
You don't have a system at all, that is true. You came up with this idea of relative cardinality but now you admit that it's so incomplete that you can't even figure out what the relative cardinality of the primes is. You think your saying things like: it depends on the bijection and the density mean something. But you're really just pointing out how inadequate your idea is and how you can't even support it. Meanwhile you've been saying shit like: I understand infinity better than Cantor. Well, he had an answer for what is the cardinality of the primes. And you don't.
So I guess you lose and Cantor wins. By your own admission you don't know what the cardinality of the primes is. So we are very done with this now. No matter how much you continue to flail around and try and salvage something out of this the bottom line is: you can not handle the cardinality of the primes. And you're not even trying.
If you don't care then why should I?
At 7:05 PM, Joe G said…
You sure don't have a system even though you think you understand infinity better than Cantor.
The two are not related, dipshit.

That helps but it isn't required. Once the simple functions are mapped out the rest can be plugged in.

And ONE MORE TIME no one uses the concept of all countably infinite sets have the same cardinality. It was useless to Cantor and it has remained a useless concept.

You sure spent a lot of time saying you knew something about it didn't you? And you didn't despite all your hand waving and bitching and moaning and whining. Calling people liars and faggots. And you had nothing. If you can't find an easy function between the positive integers and another set you can't figure out the 'relative' cardinality. Useless system that can't handle stuff.

All infinite subsets of countably infinite sets are also countable infinite.
Blah, blah, blah. You are nothing but a coward, Jerad.
It's not my fault you talk big and then fail.
More blah, blah, blah coward
Again, it's not my fault you talk big and then fail.
And ONE MORE TIME no one uses the concept of all countably infinite sets have the same cardinality. It was useless to Cantor and it has remained a useless concept.
Like you, someone who isn't a mathematician, doesn't teach mathematics, hasn't taken many mathematics course would know. Like I said before: who cares what you think?
Those were OBSERVATIONS and they still stand.
Since your 'observations' are abusive and wrong . . . who cares?
I showed Cantor's approach leads to logical contradictions. At least mine is universal and doesn't require special pleading.
Not being able to understand Cantor's work doesn't make you right.
Like I said, you can keep digging the hole you're standing in deeper and deeper but I'd quit if I were you. Unless you can figure out the relative cardinality of the primes. Or the perfect cubes. Or the 4th powers. Or a whole bunch of other infinite sets that you can't handle. That's why your system is a dead end and no one uses it. It doesn't work.

Who cares what you think? You're not a scientist or a mathematician. Nor do you teach those things. Nor do you do any work in those fields. You just talk. You don't come up with the goods.
LoL! You cannot demonstrate otherwise, dipshit.
Who cares what you think? You're just a crackpot who hasn't even got the gumption to do some work to support your own ideas. You believe in some undetected and undefined designer but you do jackshit to prove s/he/it's existence. You have a completely stupid view of infinity which you can't even apply to lots of simple cases and you even admitted you don't care.
You just like to talk and wind people up. That's why no one cares what you think.
You are a loser and a coward, Jerad
Nice job
Who cares what you think? Come up with something that works or do some original research.
Or at least take a real course so you see something that's not just elementary.

Who cares what you think? You don't do mathematical research. You don't teach mathematics. You came up with some dumbass system for dealing with infinity which doesn't work and you can't be bothered to try and make it work. Meanwhile you claim to know more than thousands and thousands of mathematicians who have actually taken the courses, studied the material, did some work that was evaluated by others who have also done the work. You think you're right and yet you haven't got the balls to test out your ideas with people who actually do know the mathematics.
Your opinion is completely irrelevant. No one takes you seriously. No one cares about your bogus ideas which don't work.
If you don't understand the use of some of Cantor's ideas it doesn't matter and I'm not going to waste anymore time trying to teach someone who is plainly not really interested in learning.

No one cares what you think. Especially when you can't even defend your own ideas. Still can't figure out what the relative cardinality of the primes is.
Thank you for continuing to prove that my claims cannot be refuted.
Like I said, since you refuse to accept anything that you disagree with and since you've already rejected evidence I'm not going to bother anymore.
It's obvious to anyone who really does know anything about Set Theory that you are a clueless dope. And no one takes you or your opinion seriously.
You can go on making bogus claims and saying things that aren't true but you're just dropping further and further below any kind of intellectual radar. Fortunately, it doesn't matter since you have no influence whatsoever. Dr Dembski, Dr Berlinski and KairosFocus disagree with your views on infinity. I suspect Dr Spetner would as well. And Shapiro. You're just a lone crackpot who is so obviously wrong that no one is even going to try and argue with you anymore.

Figured out what the relative cardinality of the primes is yet? Or the relative cardinality of the cubes? Or the rational numbers? Or the irrational numbers? Or the Reals? Or the hyperreal numbers? Or the imaginary numbers? Or the transcendental numbers? Or the surreal numbers?
Found your supposed extra coding 'in the cell'?
Figured out how that coding is stored?
Figured out how it affects development?
Figured out when design was implemented?

Well, unlike you, I am smart enough to know that if I can subtract all of the elements of one set from another and still have a set of infinite elements left, the first two sets did not have the same cardinality, ie the same number of elements.
Found your supposed extra coding 'in the cell'?
I found the evidence for it. And you don't have anything to explain the existence of living organisms.
Figured out how it affects development?
Development wouldn't happen without it and your position can't explain development.

Not even working on it as it is not important. And your position only guesses at when.

But you haven't found it. So if the book you read that convinced you mutations are guided is wrong then your evidence evaporates.

None that stands up in either a court of law or amongst scientists who know the field. No designer means no design. But you've already decided so you're not interested in any evidence. You've read a few books and you're convinced. Now you just like to wind up evoTards and try and get them angry. But you don't really have any questions to research, anything you think needs doing. It's all over as far as you're concerned. As you've now finally admitted. You're not even looking for the coding 'cause you've already decided it exists.
And you'll be saying the same thing for decades because you are impervious to new data. Is that how science is done? You base your conclusion on a few nonpeer reviewed books and then deny anything that disagrees with them?
Just like the good Christians who really, truly believe. You don't 'do' science at all. You just 'do' belief. And you're not interested in any followon questions or issues. God be praised.

Everyone who understands ID and science.
Just like all the good Christians who think the designer is God; once you think you've found HIM you stop asking questions.
And yet all of the great scientists were Christian and saw science as a way of understanding God's Creation. You are one ignorant asshole, Jerad. And your position still has nothing.
None that stands up in either a court of law or amongst scientists who know the field.
A court of law is ignorant wrt science and no scientist can refute the design inference. They have nothing. You are just a little ignorant and gullible follower.
But you've already decided so you're not interested in any evidence.
Nice projection, faggot. You choke on the evidence and you cannot produce any evidence for natural selection, drift and/ or neutral changes producing multiprotein machinery. You are just an ignorant pieceofshit lying loser.
As for how science is done LoL! you don't have any idea how science is done. Your position doesn't do any nor does it have any to support its claims. At least ID has a scientific methodology. You can't even say that.

Nonsequitor. You have not found any physical evidence of extra programming in the cell.
It wasn't just a book, dickface. And you still have nothing.
Oh, sorry. You read two books. Or three books. Or several books and a couple of papers. The point is you have based your whole stance on a small number of nonpeer reviewed publications (and a old paper that the authors now admit was flawed). And if that tiny pedestal collapses then your whole belief falls to the ground. Unless it's really based on faith and all your arguing is just trying to make your beliefs sound scientific.
But you still have nothing and yours still cannot explain development.
We're talking about your grandiose claims and your indifference towards trying to find answers for the obvious questions your statements lead to.
I am not on your asinine agenda, dipshit. And you still have nothing.
You don't have a research agenda. You think you've won. You claim to understand science and yet you do none and have no plans or interest in doing any. Meanwhile you ignore and deny evidence which undercuts your stance. Which is not how science is done.
Everyone who understands ID and science.
Yes but none of those people are doing any positive ID research. The only proID research is trying to disprove nondirected evolution. There is no positive research into ID. And you've admitted you're not even interested in some of the obvious questions.
And yet all of the great scientists were Christian and saw science as a way of understanding God's Creation. You are one ignorant asshole, Jerad. And your position still has nothing.
Unlike you they didn't just quit with: God did it. You don't even care about how or when. You're not a scientist, you're a acolyte. You help carry around the sacred writings and shout down dissenters. You don't care about science or knowledge. You only care about being right.
A court of law is ignorant wrt science and no scientist can refute the design inference. They have nothing. You are just a little ignorant and gullible follower.
Take away the few texts you have supporting guided mutations and what have you got? And why aren't you doing work trying to find more reasons to believe? Because you're not a scientist. No scientist would be happy with a few disputed publications. Unlike you who think you already know all you need to know.
Nice projection, faggot. You choke on the evidence and you cannot produce any evidence for natural selection, drift and/ or neutral changes producing multiprotein machinery. You are just an ignorant pieceofshit lying loser.
You know, when it's pointed out how thin the ledge you're standing on is you get more and more abusive. I've noticed this about true believers; when then think they might lose they get nasty instead of finding evidence.
As for how science is done LoL! you don't have any idea how science is done. Your position doesn't do any nor does it have any to support its claims. At least ID has a scientific methodology. You can't even say that.
How can you tell it has a methodology when it doesn't publish any positive ID research? No one is going around applying some, as of now, mysterious design detection procedure to any and all candidates to prove the technique works. You completely bailed on the two examples I asked you to examine. If you're doing science then you have precious little to show for it.
Newton might have been a Christian but he knew how to defend his work. You don't even care to look past what you already have decided is true. You're ignoring and denying anything which contradicts you. You get abusive and defensive when you run out of things to say. You are not following all the evidence, only what you chose to accept.

You haven't demonstrated a worked out biological example of an objective, quantifiable design detection technique.

You're abusive and rude. People who contradict you are 'liars'.
You do no research.

You keep singing the same song over and over again and an incredibly vast majority of biologists disagree with you. But, just like a good faithhead, you still believe. That's not how to do science. That's how to do dogma.
YOU don't have any evidence, asshole. And you don't have any chance at ever finding the evidence to support the claims of your position. All you can do is flail away at ID with your ignorance. You are a pathetic wanker
Notice how you betray the fact that you will never, ever accept any evidence supporting unguided evolution. That's why you're not a scientist: you don't follow the data or the evidence. You've decided and that's that. Which is why you (and all the other ID supporters) don't have a research agenda. How can you research God?
You might claim you're not a Christian but you're at least a deist. You believe in some unknown and undefined big daddy in the sky who set up the universe so human beings could come into existence, be fruitful and multiply, and discover his glory and handiwork. Too bad about all the natural disasters and the diseases and letting people like Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler and the Crusaders kill millions of innocent people. Too bad lots of us will die from cancer or dementia owing to no fault of our own. It'll all be okay in the afterlife when we get to find out what the big plan was. That's why it doesn't matter if we figure out who the mysterious designer was, we're going to meet him someday.
And you call that science? More like antiscience. Don't ask questions, just believe.
Real scientists WANT to know how and why and when. Real scientists think all questions are okay. Real scientists WANT to do research and learn stuff. ID supporters don't ask and don't want to know. They already know all they need to know. And nothing is going to change their minds. They only pretend to do science so they can bring their designer into the science classroom. Gotta sell the product eh? Can't let the deity down, he might bring another flood or plague if he's unhappy.

Oh that's right: you don't need to do any research since God did it. My bad. Next time you talk to him, ask your designer what's with all that junk DNA. You might learn something.
And thank you for proving all of my points.
Thank you for admitting you're not interested in any real research, that clears things up a lot. For a while there I took you seriously.
And you still haven't figured out the relative cardinality of the primes. Not much good your system of relative cardinalities is it? It can't do shit.

No thanks, I've got better things to do than to debate evidence with someone who claims to know more about science than working scientists but not only doesn't do any himself but doesn't even care about obvious scientific questions because he thinks he knows all he needs to know already.
At least now I won't have to read your old "we determine those things after design has been detected" because now I know you don't give a shit about when design was implemented or how. God did it is good enough for you.
