>I am Greek you moron. The original meaning of the word axiom is worthy. It comes from the root axio which means worthy.
I don't care if you are greek or not, it is wholy irrelevant. It might once have been that but guess what? It no longer is.
>And yes, in modern mathematics it means selfevident which is based on the fact that the concept has worth. Irony is that orangutans like you missed that part. Infinity has no worth, therefore not evident by any stretch.
That is not what axioms are anymore anyway so who cares? Axioms are supposed truths in a logical arguement.
>I am infinitely more intelligent than you baboon! If they removed 90% of my brain, you would still be an idiot next to me. Chuckle.
Remove 90% of your brain, your IQ remains zero :)
