What is incorrect? Although it is worth noting there is no number 0.999...8 (Since ... represents an infinite series and therefor there can be no number after that series) so you don't have to worry about such things, if you are really looking for flaws in mathematics start thinking about real paradoxes like:

Russell's Paradox

Let x be the set containing all sets which do not contain themselves

Is x a member of x?

There was a day, not all that long ago, where you could go to an unclaimed area, and say "this is mine, thanks." It is our right as humans to be able to live and thrive. In the United States, there isn't an inch of unclaimed land in the contiguous 48 states. We had a right to go somewhere and live.

-- Then a group of natives would say "wait what?" and you would give them typhoid. Those that remained would say "but don't we have a right to live and thrive here?". Then you would promptly explain manifest destiny and shoot them. Good times. Not saying that things are all that better now but lets not gloss over a massive loss of property rights that allowed for Americans to just claim land.

Comment Re:So, you believe in a planned economy, then? (Score 5, Funny) 830

Obviously, by your logic, a free market economy is impossible, Our economy is too complex to have evolved on its own. In fact, it is far more complex, with far more different parts, than a human being. It must have had a creator. If most any part of the economy, like the steel industry, say, were removed, the economy would not function. How did the economy function before there was a steel industry? Obviously, it couldn't, and therefore we have demonstrated irreducible specificated complexification or something.

All this free market talk is obvious bullshit, and we actually DO have a centrally planned economy because it is impossible for something so complex to have evolved without a central planner.

The Illuminati control the free market. Point Intelligent Design.
