     Perhaps some of you are having similar problems with the
multiple negative double think used in a previous posting.

     Thus I here by give an example and carry it to completion.

     YOU CAN PROVE that YOU CAN NOT PROVE that YOU CAN'T PROVE ANYTHING.

     So consider the statement,

     YOU CAN'T PROVE ANYTHING.

     If I prove it true, I contradict it.

     Thus I can NOT prove it true.

     QED.

     I have PROVEN:

     I CAN NOT PROVE:

     I CAN'T PROVE ANYTHING.
