"As x approaches y, y approaches z". Sound familiar ? Insufferable knowitall. God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

OR a mathematician might use the extended reals... where infinity IS a number. Argh! Equivocation! "Real" numbers in this context refers to numbers that can be constructed as limits of convergent series from the rationals. (Or about a half dozen other ways of defining them that amount to the same thing.) "Real", as used here, is a technical mathematical term that is not at all correspondent to what "real" means in everyday conversation. Blame Descartes and his prejudice against "imaginary" numbers... yes, he got to name those too.

Let's take that as proof that there ISN'T intelligent design, shall we? Or perhaps be honest and admit that the two concepts HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER.

RE: Math and God
Advanced mathematics is like quantum mechanics.
The moment someone tries to bring it up in a discussion about philosophy, you know that their argument is complete bunk. "Owl," said Rabbit shortly, "you and I have brains. The others have fluff. If there is any thinking to be done in this Forest  and when I say thinking I mean thinking  you and I must do it."  A. A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

Kindly observe:  Every integer is infinitely divisible. Between 0 and 1 lies 1/2, between 0 and 1/2 lies 1/4, 1/8, 1/16....1/(2^infinity).  If we number each fraction between two integers we will reach infinity.  Better, the same can be said for any two fractions between integers. So infinity exists on your number line between 0 and 1 (or any two arbitrary integers) and it is present an infinite number of times. Welcome to the wonderful world of cardinality.
