Re: Has It Ever Been Proven that One is Greater than Zero?

If you subtract a from b, and the result c is a positive number, then b is greater than a. This fact can be proven, and since 1 - 0 = 1, and 1 > 0, oops, circular reasoning!

I believe you can prove it using a few different axioms and subsets, but the proof isn't as simple as most would think.
