      Its propositions should neither be necessarily given more weight, nor dismissed from discussion. I used to describe myself as a "agnostic religious bigot." I don't know what's going on, yet I do guess at it a lot, and judge (and probably misjudge) people and situations based on it. October 8, at AM stevec said. Book 8 Euclid Propositions Proposition 1. If there are as many numbers as we please in continued proportion, and the extremes of them are relatively prime, then the numbers are the least of those which have the same ratio with them. Proposition 2. To find as many numbers as are prescribed in continued proportion, and the least that are in a given ratio.

    The passage of Proposition 8 received widespread media coverage over the amendment's effect on the concurrent presidential and congressional elections, as well as the pre-election effects Proposition 8 had on California's reputation as a historically LGBT-friendly state and the same-sex marriage debate that had started after same-sex. Meaning of proposition in English: proposition. ‘Without a much more thorough linkage between theory and fact, the book's central historical and theoretical propositions must be viewed as unproven.’ ‘At first blush, that would seem a preposterous proposition.’.
