No. Where do you set the two points that define "the line?"

What is "the line" and who gets to "draw" it? What are we even talking about? Who are you people? And why am I here, where are these diesel fumes coming from?

All right, folks. I'm drawing the line here. Cross it, and I'll have Jeff Bezos drone you.

You must first prove that a line can be drawn.

But it can be proven without any lines actually being drawn.

Then we draw a line between that which can be proven and that which cannot.

If we're talking about proof with certainty, yes I think we can draw a line between proving how many degrees are in a triangle and how old the universe is. It's a rough line, but still a line.

Who decides what instrument will be used to draw the line? Who picks the color of the line?

If a line is drawn, would you be willing to toe it?
