Lots of topics have generated similar amounts of debate in on-line
math fora. For instance:
- Does 0.999... = 1?
- Is 1/0 = oo?
- Short proofs of FLT
- Do irrational numbers exist?
- Do infinite sets exist?
- Is the universe one big plutonium atom?
- Can the reals and the naturals be bijected?
- How can switching doors improve your odds in the Monty Hall game?
