**Greetings
Brethren,**

**There was once a
man that caused great controversy because God the Father of all humankind sent
him. So man tried to kill him and destroy what became written. Nothing from God
can be destroyed. Nor will humankind ever come to know anything without God.**

**Peace and Love,**

*THE METHODOLOGY FOR OBTAINING TRUTH*

*PART 11: THE ACCURACY
OF MATHEMATICS*

*In the name of
Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.*

**The dialogue
continues between FreedomJournal and Truth. The question now before Truth is
the question of mathematics. Mathematics is often noted as an accurate
science. However, is this true? Can we
obtain accuracy in Social Science questions? What are the parallels of
mathematics and Social Science?**

**"Our
beloved FreedomJournal we are grateful for your introduction and for setting
the stage for our next discussion. We clearly have to define mathematics and
realize how it functions. "David Hume noted that mixed mathematics is equivalent to what would
today be called "applied mathematics," or the application of
mathematics or mathematical principles to the physical world and experience,
as, for instance, in astronomy, surveying, or the**

**calculation of
probabilities."**

**As we pursue the
effects of reasoning and realize the operational tools of cause and effect we
will look at how applied mathematics functions. Can Social Science be set in
the same or most of the same circumstances? Hume argues that every part of
applied mathematics proceeds upon certain suppositions. Thus, certain laws are
established by nature in her operations. Abstract reasoning are employed, either
to assist experience in the discovery of these laws, or to determine their
influence in particular instances, when it depends upon any precise degree of
distance and quantity."**

**"So Truth
you believe that Hume is correct in his conclusions that reasoning, and
experience**

**assist in the
discovery of laws that regulate mathematics. Well can we pose these same**

**circumstances to
other disciplines for example Social Science?"**

**“My beloved and
trusted Brother. Yes, Hume does bring some clarity toward understanding the way
mathematics functions. Thus we can use much of what he has said and apply it to
Social Science. The Social Sciences proceeds upon the interactions of humankind
to people and things. Certain laws compel nature also there are human and
spiritual laws that compel**

**man. Here we
also see the inclusion of experience, and observations as a motivating factor
in**

**human reasoning.
These principles assist man to discover Truth. Also, as the principles of cause
and effect are seen the different things that influence our conclusions are
also realized.**

**Meanwhile we
look toward the parallels of mathematical science and Social Science there is a**

**need to first
introduce math. Yes what is mathematics? Why do the multitudes view math as**

**precise when the
mathematicians question the precision and exactness of mathematics?"**

**Alfred Alder in
an essay titled "Mathematics and Creativity" notes the following:**

**"Math is
pure logic, the language of science. At one level math deals with the nature of
logic**

**itself. At
another level math deals with numbers the basic units of mathematics, and
perhaps of all human thought."**

**Alder goes on to
argue that math forces skepticism, on its students as a 1st requirement.**

**Therefore math
is a field where much that seems true is in fact false. It is then concluded**

**that math is a
field where very little is known, Adler then declares that this is true of
every**

**domain of human
thought.**

**However, as
Truth-Seekers we beg to differ. We do not deny that math suffers from many**

**instances of disproof.
Nevertheless, in the realm of Social Science impacted by the ultimate Truth of
God much is known.**

**The reasoning of
mathematicians like many Physical sciences operates from a particular frame
work of analysis. Thus all facts, statements etc. are not believed until they
have been proved by a series of steps that have been universally accepted.**

**Still, what of
things that can't be proved? Also who designed the steps to be used to note
proof or dis proof? Can one prove most things without God?**

**We are certain
that some will view that last statement with confusion. Because some believe
that very little can be proved about God. So can one use a manner of disproof
to prove something? We will question this later but for now we will look at
math and dis-proof.**

**"Gordel's
Theorem proves that there exist meaningful mathematical statements that are
neither provable nor disprovable, now or ever neither provable nor disprovable.
Not simply because human thought or knowledge is insufficiently advanced but
because the very nature of logic renders them incapable of resolution, no
matter how long the human race survives or how wise it becomes."**

**Is the previous
theorem by Gordel entirely true? With God at the center all things are possible
for the believers. So will many things once unknown in math and Science become
known by the Spiritual Scientist? However, we must take a further look at math
and how it impacts on our questions toward obtaining a methodology for Truth.**
