    Of course Jesus is not always the answer. You forgot “The Bible” and “God.”

  • David Evans

    Jesus is transcendental. A transcendental number (such as pi or e) contains every integer somewhere in its infinite decimal expansion. These answers appear all to be integers. Therefore all these answers are in Jesus.

      There are transcendental numbers for which this is not true. For example, the sum of 10^(-k!), k in 1 to infinity, 0.110001000000000000000001000…

      Normal numbers do have this property. While most transcendental numbers are also normal numbers, very few numbers have been shown to be normal. Neither pi nor e have been proven to be normally, though they are generally believed to be.

      I have an open mind as to whether there is a larger set of transcendental numbers than normal numbers with this property.

        “There are transcendental numbers for which this is not true.”

        I knew that! Or at least, I once knew it and should have remembered it. I didn’t know about normal numbers. Always something new to learn…

        I wonder if Godel’s proof applies to theology. It might explain certain long-lived disagreements.
