Refutation of the Method of Forcing

Authors: Colin James III

We evaluate two examples of paradoxes to be resolved by the method of forcing. The first is not tautologous, and the second is a contradiction so not proved as a paradox. This means the forcing method is refuted because it cannot coerce the two examples into abstract proofs and with the ultimate goal to produce larger truth values. What follows is that the forcing method is better suited for paraconsistent logics which are non tautologous fragments of the universal logic VŁ4.
