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?
