One has to digest this alleged "proof".
Have You?
I tried to follow those guys who made Marathons
to succeed this goal as they could not reach the " Sour Grapes".
What some of them devised light-heartedly ,the invention
and use(God knows how-The King is Naked...)of the HALF PART
of EULERS Equation:
but for JUSTICE to prevail since EULER'S Equation
states that: e^(iPi)=cos(pi)+i[sin(pi)]
then e^(ipi)=-1 + i(0) , thus the
other solution is e^(ipi)=0.

So take Your pick!
This is what this group of guys did not take into consideration!
