Yes, you must forgive me for my humble intelligence.

I don't recall ever hearing the term Euclidean Geometry, if it was something mentioned in my geometry class we're talking about 20 years ago, if it was in my Calculus courses we're talking about 10 years ago.

So perhaps my photographic memory is failing me here, lol.

It is, of course, a prereq for trig, which is of course a prereq of calculus, which is of course a prereq for Calc II. Hope that helps.

Your ignorance is noted.

Yes, Girly did make the argument, but he confessed to being a factual relativist.

What a fucking dolt. Whether I'm a nihilist or factual relativist or Jesus Christ has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that arithmetic is not only intrinsically relative to a radix, IT IS FUCKING DEFINITIONALLY SO! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABSOLUTE ABOUT MATHEMATICS OR LOGIC! Please stop using mathematics to try and make your point. You are not only embarrassing yourself but whatever educational system resulted in such ignorance.

Except of course for the fact that if you're a factual relativist nothing is absolute or objectively true, let alone mathematics, duh. So asking you to distinguish between something that is absolute or objective, as opposed to relative is a non-starter. It's like asking someone who thinks everything is imaginary, if he can tell me what's real, or a solipsist as to what exists outside of his own mind.

Don't know what that is. So I lack a belief.

Oh my dear fucking Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died for our sins never to be heard from again. I was introduced to Euclid's postulates and Euclidean geometry when I was 10 yo in elementary school. ALL of Euclidean geometry is RELATIVE to these postulates.

1) A straight line may be drawn between any two points.
2) A piece of straight line may be extended indefinitely.
3) A circle may be drawn with any given radius and an arbitrary center.
4) All right angles are equal.
5) If a straight line crossing two straight lines makes the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if extended indefinitely, meet on that side on which are the angles less than the two right angles.

Change any one of these postulates and you have a completely different geometry RELATIVE to the new postulates. For the love of God and all that is human, please stop using math in your arguments. By your own admission you don't have a fucking clue what you're talking about.

Uhm, the only mathematical example I use is 2+2. And I'm still trying to get my head around why 4 is not an objectively true answer.

Is it objectively true when these numbers correspond to actual objects like apples, or shoes?

Peep this:
Radix is 10... 2+2=4
Radix is 3... 2+2=11
