Mathematicians and Confirming Correctness
By MortazaviBlog on Aug 24, 2006
Only a mathematician can turn confirming correctness into a conundrum.
To get around the conundrum, neither deduction by contradiction nor deduction by construction will help.
I'm purposefully not using "proof by contradiction" here but emphasizing the "deduction" used by mathematicians. Anything that requires for its proof a deduction must indeed be quite poor in its validity for it is far from obvious.
