Hi Harv,

Further comments:

Quote: "Why is it Alan that all people from different religions can agree on math but not on the right religious worship or the same God definition (e.g., Trinity)? "

That was a difficult question which I thought about.

First: there are a billion Catholics so agreement about God appears possible....

However, on the face of it agreement on math seems wide.

But does math have much content?

What does "agreement" mean?

To disagree you first have to agree?

Because if you do not agree as to what "President" means; how can you disagree as to who should be America's president; say?

Even if you disagree as to what "president" means; the terms by which "president" is defined would be something you would need to agree on; or how would you know you are even disagreeing?

Math involves putting things togerther in groups without specifying order except minimallistically?

So easy to agree on math because it just requires agreeing that agreement is possible, that things can meet and form groups?

Agreement on "God" : maybe ideas about "God" cause confusion as people have been taught different things.

Quote: "Universal: freedom........????????????????

Please elaborate. What does this have to do with finding common consensus for definitions used by a universal audience for practical purposes? "

What is the "universal defdinition" criteria you require?

Universal means wide-spread acceptance. What do you think is the criteria for something to have wide-spread acceptance?"

Answer: it's voluntary?


Regards,

Alan
