### 2+2=5

I believe 2+2=5.

I can’t prove that 2+2=5.

You just have to believe 2+2=5.

2+2=5 transcends naturalist and scientific explanations.

You have to accept 2+2=5 on faith.

I can feel 2+2=5 at work in my life.

I have the right to believe whatever I want.

2+2=5 is everywhere, if you care to look.

Schools that do not teach 2+2=5 should be required to teach the controversy.

There are those who deny 2+2=5.

If they would only accept 2+2=5 they would see the truth of 2+2=5.

You too should believe 2+2=5.

2+2=5 is the foundation of morality and knowledge.

That which contradicts 2+2=5 is necessarily wrong.

We need to get this country back to 2+2=5 values.

It is the lack of 2+2=5 values that is undermining what makes this country great.

It is rude and contemptible to openly question 2+2=5.

As I believe 2+2=5 I will take it as a personal attack if anyone questions 2+2=5.

2+2=5 is the light and the way.

To claim 2+2 does not =5 is blasphemy.

Blasphemers are poisoned wells. 1. Brilliant. That says it all.

2. Absolutely beautiful....

3. You fool! 2 + 2 = 22!

4. Bah! 2+2=5 is the one true 2+2.

5. 6. 7. 1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 98765432

Miren esta simetria:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321

9. "Prove to me that God exists" said the atheist.
"Prove to me that water exists" said the fish.

btw: "2+2=5 transcends naturalist and scientific explanations" Indeed it does. It is a mathematical explanation, not a naturalist or a scientific explanation. A false explanation, but still...

1. are you saying science and math do not mix?

10. Decent point. Perhaps I should edit it to "2+2=5 transcends naturalist, scientific and mathematical explanations." I just don't recall anyone ever suggesting "God transcends mathematical explanation." Hmm, maybe edit in "... logical explanations."

But the question of what the sum of 2 and 2 is can be tested empirically in the natural world with material examples. While nature and science may not eliminate the problem of induction regarding 2 +2, they do a reasonable job of demonstrating consistent outcomes.

11. Jake's book premise looks interesting. Maybe I'm just a sucker for time travel fiction. check it out at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Einstein-Pool-iGod-Book-ebook/dp/B00O81AOCQ/

This ' "Prove to me that water exists" said the fish. ' is kind of insulting. If a fish could talk, conceptualize water and presumably think abstractly it should be child's play to prove the existence of water, assuming it is possible to prove the existence of anything.
