That statement is ignorance pure and simple.

Exactly. As I've said before there is no logical reason that every event
must have a cause, logically some things can be random; and modern physics
tells us that it's not only logical possible its physically actual.

Functions have domains and ranges, in this case the car and the area inside
the yellow lines.

A function is the use of the steering column to turn the wheels of the car.

Yes. the domain is the movement of the steering column and the range the
movement of the car.

No difference. It's a shame you never studied elementary algebra.

Something like a function.

And so can rules.

True. The question now is, do you know what you are talking about?

just negating everything your opponent says doesn't work, you've got to
have a strategy.
