All at Math-teach are STRONGLY urged to read, with close attention, the above astonishing exegesis penned by Robert Hansen. It provides plentiful evidence indeed (if not definitive proof) that practically all of GSC's claims in his several arguments against Robert Hansen must have a real basis.

I shall state only that a 'family resemblance', if any, is much more likely to exist between Robert Hansen and HIS brother than between GSC and Robert Hansen's brother.

Only someone utterly deficient in understanding of the "IMPLICATION" relationship could have put up such an argument as done in Robert Hansen's post copied above.

May I claim "Out of the mouth of Robert Hansen!" ???

(While it's not directly relevant, it may be useful to note, by the way, that GSC has the greatest of respect and admiration for GSC's brother.
