Up until the 2nd century, the number zero did not exist in any numerical system.
The numbers we use today originated in India and was passed onto the world by the Arab mathematicians.
As for gods and numbers - man has invented around 2600 of these, and of course they are all the "one-true omnipotent lord who will strike down the unbeliever"
Only 2 things you need to know about god - she's black.

Ah, it's very good that Christians do understand the polytheistic religions, because if we're going to follow this logic, "There is only one god" is an interesting assertion in that if there is a need to specifically assert that there's only one god, multiple gods have to exist... right?
(One of the rather fundamental problems of logic is that the annoying thing about being right is that you have to admit that the wrong answer exists. You can't have one without the other. Deal with it.)

So you're saying zero really means one? I would guess you never passed basic arithmatic did you Jude?

Word salad. Edit: great minds? ;-)

When an Christian states that there are “No Unicorns”, I as an Atheist and lover of the creative processes of Evolution would have to agree. You see as much as a Christian wants to be a Christian, the premise of their argument makes them exactly what they really are: A - nutjob. Which leads me to believe that there are none of them!
Let me explain. The number Zero is immensely interesting just in and of itself. Saying “the number Zero” is very much akin to saying that “there are NO Unicorns”, do to the fact that Zero of its own admission is seen as the absence of numbers, however can’t be described as anything but, and its implied non-existence can’t be explained if it, and numbers, don’t exist. So in order for there to be “No” numbers, numbers have to exist, without which there would be no Zero, of which numbers it is One, as a Unicorn is one, or Zero.

This isn't that stupid Set Theory argument again, is it?

Word salad, starring Zero The Hero!

You mock my beliefs, fine.
BUT STAY THE FUCK OUT OF MY MATHS, STUPID BITCH.
12/19/2008 1:14:51 PM
Shitty argument. I don't believe in your god the same way you don't believe in Allah. Get it through your fucking skull

Jude, hell mate, you're all over the place there. Take a breath or go have a lie down.

So there are an infinite number of Gods? And fractions of Gods?
So there must also be infinaty FSM's!

In order for there to be no pink invisible unicorns, there first have to be pink invisible unicorns. What the fuck crazy shit are you spouting?
That's when we enter the world of...IMAGINATION!
Hence, God is imaginary.

Escher, Möbius . . . Jude-11. The logic unwinds and impossibility reigns.
Blabble blibble blobble.

I'll have ranch with my word salad, please.

That's deep. I hate it when people say things that are meaningless but sound wise.

I read about the afterlife
something tells me you don't know what the pre-fix A in the start of a word actually means, do you?

You fail 7th grade math.

The premise of our argument is that there are no gods. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. All your convoluted and tortured attempt at proving otherwise with false analogies and bad mathematics won't change a thing.

Interesting how certain people seriously think when they play around enough with words, that at a certain point non-existent things magically pop into existence.

So when you say, 'There is no Allah', that means you're secretly a Muslim, right?
