    Anyway, there's nothing more to be said on the topic. I'm satisfied that I have covered it comprehensively and I'm equally sure that parson will do his usual thing of trying to distract the reader with verbose irrelevancies.

    I am quite surprised by the patience I have shown but now, finally, I'm out.

    Numbers and the symbols that represent them are not the same things.
    Because?

    A classic case is the issue of whether there is life on other planets.

    We know that life CAN exist but have no evidence of it on other planets.

    Which bit of "I'm out" did you need clarifying?

    The classic case is the black swan.

    Because every swan in Europe was white it became a statement of certainty that being a swan equaled being white.
    No - it didn't. I learned about Black Swans in primary school.

    Even longer ago - Tchaikovsky knew about Black Swans

    And even longer ago than that - back in the 'dark ages' before Australia was known about - people knew about Black Swans - they were rare. true - which is why they were considered a delicacy!

    The phrase "black swan" derives from a Latin expression; its oldest known occurrence is from the 2nd-century Roman poet Juvenal's characterization of something being "rara avis in terris nigroque simillima cygno" ("a rare bird in the lands and very much like a black swan").[3]:165 When the phrase was coined, the black swan was presumed not to exist. The importance of the metaphor lies in its analogy to the fragility of any system of thought. A set of conclusions is potentially undone once any of its fundamental postulates is disproved. In this case, the observation of a single black swan would be the undoing of the logic of any system of thought, as well as any reasoning that followed from that underlying logic.

    It isn't worth my effort answering this qeustion for this reason.

    (Scrotum will now childishly attention seek by claiming this means I can't answer it, he will be ignored).
    You pointing out yourself that you can't answer the question simply makes my job easier....
