Alt-science sadly has a platform as the right supports a lot of Alt science.

What that the fact that the polar ice caps aren't melting and they are SEASONAL changes in weather that can happen with chance alone?

No such thing as "alt math". If you solve a problem and come up with a wrong answer, it's not alternative or alternatively correct, it's just wrong.


That's not true at all. Sometimes in higher math it's not that clear or provable. A common point of contention is whether some theory has been proven or not. Sometimes theories are accepted by some experts and rejected by other ones. There is plenty of room for disputes or arguing in math. Having alt math would be a very different take on a large part of math. Also it's odd how higher math sometimes turns into arguments about semantics or definitions.

Hell, alt math might be the one most susceptible and reasonable for having an alt branch. How infinities should be treated. How zero or approximating zero should be treated. Complex numbers, irrational numbers, and that's not even getting into the real advanced stuff.

but that's still math, isn't it? like, math math still encapsulates the study of those open problems. alt-math might just be declaring that Tree(3) = 100 because I got tired of coming up with examples.


That makes sense if you just intend on s***ting on the idea of "alt-anything" as some kind of brownie points for your political opinion. It has no relation to the meaning of alt anything.

The minority viewpoint, ie. alternative to the mainstream, has been proven right many times.

See you support alt-science.

I'd give you that I kinda lost it there, but what would alt-math be? It can't be my fault that I can cite the bowling green masacare as alt-history. You'd really have to take it up with Kellyanne for alternative-facts. Or the overwhelming number fraud relating to alternative medicine.

Math is self-defined, and largely* consistent. It's actively being applied in engineering in the real world, and is measurably reliable. It's also very encompassing.

ps. I i was after brownie points, I would be 100% behind the HK protest. I'm not.

What does alt-science even mean?

Science by definition, can always change, in some instances radically, when new information is presented.

If you were to claim that the universe wasn't around 14 billion years old, but instead a billion years younger, you'd be laughed at (at least, before it turned out that it is)

I mean, that's how it was in 1999, and then again... in 2019
