In regards to Godel's Incompleteness Theorem:

"(Each logical system) contains, at any given time, more true statements than it can possibly prove according to its own defining set of rules." -- Jones and Wilson, An Incomplete Education

"Gödel showed that within a rigidly logical system... propositions can be formulated that are undecidable or undemonstrable within the axioms of the system." -- Boyer, History of Mathematics

"Gödel showed that any system within which arithmetic can be developed, (that system) essentially incomplete." -- Nagel and Newman, Gödel's Proof

"What it seems to say is that rational thought can never penetrate to the final ultimate truth" -- Rucker, Infinity and the Mind

"Gödel showed that provability is a weaker notion than truth, no matter what axiom system is involved ..." -- Hofstadter, Gödel, Escher, Bach


So, Alex, are all these folks 'dumb' too? If it's dumb you're looking for, perhaps you should seek the nearest bathroom mirror.
