Chemistry  Making "fuel" from water Physics  Cold fusion Biology  Cryptozoology Just some examples to show that this "phenomenon" is not restricted to mathematics.

Actually, even people who do (allegedly) know what they're doing in medicine sometimes come up with "magical" solutions. Consider the vast amount of money made from various smart antacid drugs for treating stomach ulcers. Most of those drugs most of the time are little better than expensive palliatives. Treating a helicobacter infection with regular antibiotics has now been shown to be much more effective. Paul

This means that you're considering s with complex part = 4.532...; an odd choice, but valid since you haven't otherwise specified the value of s. It is worth mentioning that the first nontrivial zeta zero is at 1/2 + 14.134...i, so zeta(s) is not zero. This does not follow from your substitution, but it is correct. Quote:
This does not follow in any way. You've demonstrated that 0 = 0, but you would need to demonstrate that zeta(a + bi) = 0 for some a β 0, b β 1/2.

I could have sworn that cold fusion had actually been done by now and that cryptozoology was real.

If you read this thread from the beginning you are showing pure bad faith. If you are just picking statements by R. D. Silverman to criticize them, you are doing exactly what you accuse him of. You could at least do what you want him to do : just ignore some posts or posters. Jacob Judging by your following posts, you are developping an interesting case of cranckiness. Ingesting spider webs for instance has nothing to do with homeopathy. Last fiddled with by S485122 on 20080914 at 06:41

Math or any other thing where you're not in danger is a different story. Terrible analogy.

However, your claim is a non sequitur. Swallowing a spider web, with or without orange juice, has nothing to do with homeopathy. Paul

You are confusing knowledge and intelligence. One need not be a genius to try something. One does need to be informed. One should not be ignorant.
