Hard to experiment if you have no mathematical model to build your hypothesis off of.
Only if your experiment involves a mathematical model in the first place. If your experiment is how to make fire, then you don't really need
math...our ancestors sure didn't.
Also, I never said anything contrary to this in the first place. So, I fail to see why you even mentioned it. It isn't germaine to what I stated.
Perhaps it would be more correct if you had said "It's hard to prove a mathematical model if you do not have said model in the first place". You
didn't though, you said something irrelevant to me.
Math + Experiment = Equally Important.
Only one provides conclusive evidence.
I'm not saying math is worth nothing, but it doesn't prove anything by itself, and does not bear the weight of real proof.
Try not to cut down a 12 year old that is smarter than you.
Nothing I said was insulting, or derogatory. You are just inventing reasons to call people stupid.
I know he hampers on everyone's ego but a kid like this is more important the human race than 90% of us will ever be.
It has nothing to do with ego. Again, you are just looking for excuses to insult people.
This kid can come up with the most brilliantly woven mathematical theory in the history of man, and it means squat if it's unproven. If he proves
nothing, then his ultimate contribution to mankind is a bunch of squiggles and lines arranged in an interesting pattern.
It's funny how you measure people in terms of worth.
The Nazi's assigned people different worth's also.
