that's fine, you disagree with the paper without providing evidence as to why.
What paper are you speaking of that he supposedly disagrees with. You have said many and say some were planted to throw people off and had nothing to do with the topic. Please be clear. What paper?
At least you agree that it's highly improbable that a single vote will effect an election.
I may not recall correctly over so many pages, but I don't recall anyone disputing that. amended to add: in a large election. In a small vote count one vote can be huge.
It's very strange, that in the same post you also claim that there is always a vote that decides the election.
Interesting. I know that is your rant over a lot of pages, why are you attributing it to him instead of you?
that means that there is 100% chance.
Intentional or not I cannot figure out if that dangle is supposed to attach to the sentence before it or after it Makes a difference.
you're directly contradicting yourself. we know that's not true.
If he knows something, how can that also be untrue that he knows something? Please make yourself clear.
let me simplify this even further for you:
let's say there was an election in which you voted. The final results are this:
A: 25 votes
B: 20 votes
you voted for A. A clearly won the election. Do you agree that if you had NOT voted, A STILL would have won the election? In other words, your vote did not change the outcome? Can you answer this without swerving off into chaos theory? It's addition and subtraction.
Repeating the same logical fallacies will not make it true.
If you magically went back in time and instead of voting did not then the NEW totals would be A: 24 and B: 20 assuming he voted for the winner. He went from having a one in something percent chance of having an effect to having a zero percent chance of effecting an event.
Use your math... A: 25 and B: 25. Then you go back in time and magically unvote one from A. Now the new total is A: 24 B:25. The result of this magic is a 100% probability that one vote effected the outcome ( since this was a back in time experiment the usual probabilities become null as all parameters are one vote.) . In the same election Jim chose to not vote and his probabilities remained at 0% chance of changing the total.
0 cannot EVER equal 1 A non vote and a vote are not equal. No matter how tiny you want to make the probability, a vote is some positive integer and a non vote probability can never change from zero.
"Do you agree that if you had NOT voted, A STILL would have won the election?"
A result is not equal to no change. Have 8 people go back in time and no vote A. It is no different than you saying just one. Now you have B winning just by magically going back in time. A vote has a value and a non vote has no value. they are not equal. Please learn math.
