You gotta know something about proof by induction to follow it. 14) The proof is now complete: we have shown that the statement is true for n=1, and we have shown that whenever it is true for n=k it is also true for n=k+1, so by induction it is true for all n... when and only when we make the assumption that in our group of k people, everyone has the same age.

I've never seen this, I'm laughing. I'm thinking all your fancy number combos are what dewy's after. I'm more like this (ironically).

Yup. That's the gist of it. Step 9 is the problem, may not be anybody else in G but P & Q. Well done DLJ. There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. Camus

Lucky guess. For any further advice you require, consulting day rates ($2,000) apply.

It is invalidly applying a universal quantifier, going from 'there exists an x' to 'for all x'. But I'm not even half way through my first cup of coffee, so I may be wrong. Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims. Science is not a subject, but a method.
