Here is the response

 "Los! Lies Exposed!😂

If 0 +0=0 ,

Then

There is no possibility for life to exist without a cause,

Hence the equation 0 +0=1 is false ,

But what is the correct view? The correct is:

For anything to exist there must be a cause which is distinct from it, So, If There is a Cause of The Universe Then It Must Be One Which is What we Muslim Call The Oneness of Allah S.W.T. 1=1"

Thoughts appreciated.

There may be a "cause" of everything, but none of that points to what a Muslim calls the oneness of Allah.  Why not the oneness of Christ, or the oneness of Spinoza, or the oneness of Buddha?  It's definitional bullshit.

Tank, bless your heart. The simplest answer is that his original "proof" is a metaphor. Metaphors may be useful in explaining concepts, but they are not scientific proof of anything. 1+1 can indeed equal 1 if we mean 1 drop of water + 1 drop of water = 1 slightly larger drop of water, but that speaks nothing to the mathematical truth of 1+1 or even all that much about the scientific properties of H2O, except that water droplets smush together easily. It's a nonsensical form of proof for anything.

Sort of answered this one in a Facebook post.

To re-iterate, and put it more bluntly, using classical algebra in this example is just silly. As Davin and Gloucester pointed out, a numeral does not have to represent a certain algebraic value outside the context of algebra. Following much the same line of thought, "nothing" does not have to represent the same thing in algebra as it does in, say, cosmology.

Could be low values of zero and one.

0.44 + 0.43 = 0.87 when rounded to the nearest whole number is 0 + 0 = 1;

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
