I never said he was mentally retarded. Let's keep it in context.

Anyway, here it is - the proof that one equals two!

Assume that A = B.

AČ = AB
AČ - BČ = AB - BČ
(A + B)(A - B) = B(A - B)
A + B = B
B + B = B
2B = B
2 = 1

TADA! And yes, there is a fundamental flaw in the proof rendering it untrue. The first person to find it gets a cookie! (Not really.)

I know, I suck in maths. Everything is clear until this part, which I don't get at all
"
A + B = B
B + B = B
2B = B
2 = 1"

So if someone could tell me how that works I'd appreciate it very much.

The fairytale maths starts here...

AČ - BČ = AB - BČ

since A = B all that = 0

2b = b => 2*0 = 0...

This has gone totally off topic... back again... I say that Stephen is amazing. His theory on black holes is not only profound, but he thoughts in general. Yes, a physical handicap. He lived 6 years longer than what his doctor expected, or something like that...

The (A - B) on either side is cancelled.

AČ ≠ AB, surely?
