I would like to start a topic that shows a conceptual inconsistency between the philosophy of science and math. If you consider the math operation of dividing by a fraction such as 1/(1/2)=2, although this is accepted math, this operation has no physical basis in reality, because it violates the conservation of energy. For example, if I had one gallon of gasoline and divide by a 1/2 , I now have two gallons of gasoline. This math operation could solve the world's energy crisis and implies perpetual motion is possible. Science would say this is in violation of energy conservation and would be called perpetual motion. How can science continue to use that math operation knowing it cannot be proven in the lab? My explanation was this math operation appeared before science knew about energy conservation. Since science was young, the operator may have appeared valid, when science was just cutting its teeth. It became a tradition. In the bible, Jesus feeds thousands with just a few fish and loaves of bread. Conceptually all he needed to do was divide by a fraction, such as 1/500 and he got the math and science accepted multiplier. So it is valid, or is there a dual standard as to who is allowed to use perpetual motion, extras, to solve equations and problems.
