Would it then be possible that, in a two (or more) dimensional universe, one could draw a right angle triangle that did not obey the theorem?


As long as at least two dimensions exist, Pythagoras' theorem holds true. As long as mass and light exists, e=mc2 holds true.


You didn't answer the questions. Try again. :coffee:

False and false.

The surface of a sphere is two dimensional and the Pythagorean theorem does not hold. in fact, if our space-time is non Euclidean then the Pythagorean theorem is only an approximation of how our universe works.

Therefore is no logically necessary reason that I am aware of that in our universe mass and energy must be equivalent, or given their equivalence, that the speed of light be finite, or constant, or that the relationship between the two be a simple linear relation, or that the proportionality constant have the speed of light as a term.

And, even if that were the case, it would nonetheless remain true that, within a Euclidean system, the Pythagorean theorem holds. This is the case even if no Euclidean universe physically exists. So "Wortfish" has managed the impressive feat of being wrong in at least two different ways with a single statement. :clap:

You haven't confounded theism or anything but I'm sure most around here think it's a fine little zinger.
