Response to intrepidity (Reply #12)

13. No, I'm not disputing the theorem; you are missing the difference between one example

and proving the theorem in general. I don't think that's "semantic nuance"; I think it's the idea of "proof of a general theorem". A proof needs to apply to all cases, not just one.
