mathwonk: isn't it more likely that fermat was mistaken, than that 350 years of mathematicians have failed to find his elementary proof?

That probably has something to do with whether you are a professional
mathematician or an amateur. The same problem is also is found in Physics and the matter of whether you believe in the Special Theory of Relativity. It amazes me that some have thought the theory bunk and openly admit they can not follow a mathematical equation.

A simple solution for FLT would arise if you could prove the abc conjecture...
And you are just going to LEAVE it at that? How about telling us what the "abc conjecture" is!

Well, he didn't do it one and a half years ago, so I suspect he is unwilling to enlighten us now. :cry:
