I'm sorry.  I am responsible for the misunderstanding.  I used the
word "math" when I really mean symbolic logic (which, historically,
was part of philosophy).  My point is that the field is confusing
because it seems to ignore binary logic in favor of symbolic logic.
Is binary logic not "rigorous and precise" enough?
