### Mathematicians and Confirming Correctness

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.

Strange guy. Hope he is doing well cause seems like he is not living a good life in Russia. Well, I guess for some mathematicians, if you prove something with deduction, it becomes so obvious that they use it to prove other obvious things! (hmmm! btw, you anti-spam math question was always easier. This time it looks so hard...)

So, it is a good thing we did not go with the algebra problem some were suggesting! Now, let me see if I can solve this anti-spam math question: 9 + 46 = ?
