Refutation of Tarski's Undefinability of Truth Theorem © Copyright 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

This refutes Tarski's theorem for the undefinability of truth as: "no definable and sound extension of Peano Arithmetic can be complete"; or in abstract terms, "the proof of a system cannot be demonstrated by itself". Tarski's theorem is an arguable equivalent to Godel's incompleteness theorem, as based on the liar's paradox. [Remark added later: Tarski's theorem as used since about 1936 is an underpinning of quantum theory and a universal justification for atheism.]
