If math can't divide by zero than it can't be the explanation of everything!?

    Well, its not math that cant divide by zero, its OUR choice that we dont divide by zero. WE define what structures we want to use. We can set up a different algebra where we can divide by zero, but such algebras are not as useful.

    Math does NOT claim to have an explanation for everything. Do you understand the basic definition of division? If you did you would understand why division by 0 is undefined. .. That is drastically different than saying Math does not explain things.

    Any number divided by zero is undefined. Have a nice day.
