## Main Question or Discussion Point

Feel free to give your reasons.

I voted yes, because too many useful theorems are thrown out the window if Axiom of Choice is rejected. I believe that these useful theorems outweigh the surprising (strange?) results that also arise from AC (e.g. every set can be well-ordered). Also, if AC is truly a failure (based on what I have no idea), then shouldn't it have failed by now, over 100 years later? I'm assuming that there has been no physical experiment available to disprove the Axiom of Choice, am I right? Will there ever be such a physical experiment?
