    Fermat says "“It is impossible for a cube to be a sum of two cubes, a fourth power to be a sum of two fourth powers, or in general for any number that is a power greater than the second to be the sum of two like powers."

    As I see it Fermat's Last theorem involves triangles. That's because any a+b<c cannot form a triangle and cannot be raised to any power to be equal to c raised to the same power because any number raised to any power cannot be equal to a larger number raised to the same power. That solves FLT for all a+b<c. That fact is called trivial because it's so obvious. I would expect any mathematician to recognize that. Do you all recognize that? So When a+b=>c a, b, and c can form a triangle. Does that sound like crackpottery? I was called a crackpot and banned from physics forums for saying FLT involves triangles.They called that crackpottery. I posted some other things but the thread was closed and I was banned so fast I couldn't answer their mistakes. A mod of theirs wrote this

    "Let a=1, b=1, and c=2 and 1/3
    thus
    a cubed + b cubed = c cubed."

    I hope you all recognize how monumental that mistake is. I certainly would have pointed out such a gross mistake, and I'm sure they knew it and banned me before I could. I had pointed out several of their previous mistakes. They made a lot more mistakes of fact and mistakes of principles. I found them to be completely unprincipled.

    I hope you're better than that here.

    This discussion goes further but I want to see if you're up to recognizing at least the trivial facts illustrated above before I go on.

    Have you ever considered changing your approach to posting on social media?
    The only thing you have done here is make a bunch of claims, give out about having been banned from other forums, and whine about the faults of others in an extraordinarily arrogant and condescending way. What you have not done is actually ask a question that we can objectively answer for you, in a way that shows us that you are open to what others have to say. You come across as someone who has already made up his mind, and is not receptive to the input of others at all.

    I am sorry, but based on the impression you have made from this first post, I suspect you are unlikely to spark off a discussion that could possibly be beneficial to anyone here, least of all to yourself. If you used that same tone on whatever other forums you posted, then I have to tell you that it is not much of a surprise that you got banned, quite regardless of the actual contents of your posts.

    Watch carefully what kind of impulse arises within you after reading my post; this is just something for yourself to reflect on.

    I participated as a valued member on forums for many years starting 20 years ago. My poste were, by far, the most widely viewed posts on those sites. Then unprincipled moderators and their cohorts took over and messed them all up. Don't you know that forums have been messed up by bad mods? So I'm wary of participating in forums anymore.

    I pointed out some trivial facts to see if you up to handling even trivial facts in a principled way. You're not.

    I surely did ask a question. I asked if you are up to recognizing some trivial facts as facts. You did not answer that question. You call the facts, trivial as they are, as mere "claims". Either you recognize the facts I pointed out as facts and didn't say you recognize them because you play unprincipled games or you don't recognize them as facts and are not up to this discussion, and you have a lot of nerve to call this a math forum. Call that condescending if you want but you have answered my last question. This is not the site for me.

    I'd say thank you but I don't thank people who offer garbage.

    There are no paradoxes in relativity, just people's misunderstandings of it.

    doitright:
    I'm having a bit of trouble sorting out the opening post into
    - complaint about past treatment
    - analysis of discussions that are not included in this thread
    - mathematical conjecture
    - whether the question ultimately being asked is
    - - do you see a flaw in my argument, or
    - - do you simply acknowledge I am right

    I'll wait for some clarification about which, exactly, you want to discuss, and respond to that.
