The term “Pythagorean theorem” is #racist, based on a lie that (White) Greeks did a superior axiomatic math unknown in (Black) Egypt. Did they? Was “Euclid” a White Greek male as imagined by Wikipedia or a Black Egyptian woman as in the cover of this book? Does racism affect math?…


Calculus is difficult because real numbers are wrongly believed essential to it. Reverting to the way calculus originated makes it easy. Axiomatic proofs (like Russell’s 378 page proof of 1+1=2) add zilch to the practical value of math in a grocer’s shop, but they make math excessively difficult. The purported…

(Note: The following article speaks the truth, instead of taking sides. However, the Indian media being totally polarised, I could not publish the article in either English or Hindi. Hence, am now posting it on my blog, since I feel it is important for me to take a stand on…

Several people have written to me regarding a twitter war being waged between Nilesh Oak and a CK Raju. As I am not on twitter, I asked someone else to ascertain. The debate relates to the comments on a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWH4nTlbpjk. Clicking on the comments on that video by CK…

The church state nexus led to an enormous amount of false history, for the priest ruled with the help of lies. During the Crusades the church adopted reason (not much mention of it in the Bible). The Crusades (after the first) were military failures, therefore, the church adopted reason, as…

My point in part 1 and part 2 of this post was that there were no axiomatic proofs among Greeks, and that the cult of Pythagoreans as also the book Elements were both concerned with religious beliefs about the soul linked to geometry. The church reinterpreted the book Elements, to…

As pointed out in the previous blog entry, there are, in fact, no axiomatic proofs in Greek math. But there is a widespread and sticky belief to that effect. Why is this false belief about axiomatic proofs among Greeks so widespread and sticky? In fact, Western/church education spread the false…
