I need help with this title:
Mathematicians have the concept of rigorous proof, which leads to knowing something with complete certainty. Consider the extent to which complete certainty might be achievable in mathematics and at least one other area of knowledge.

_ If someone could give me two knowledge questions that would be great. One for each AOK.

@To what extent is complete certainty achievable?
Bring up mathematics: complete certainty is achievable, but only within the scope of the mathematical axioms. Mathematical truth is only as true as the axioms, which can not be proven.
Then discuss the same question within another aok, like history and compare the level of certainty
