(Guest-) Opinion 105: Interview with Shalosh B. Ekhad about Mikhail Gelfand's Interview With Yuri Manin

Interviewed by Doron Zeilberger

DZ: In the November 2009 issue of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society I read Mikhail Gelfand's very interesting interview with the eminent human mathematician Yuri Manin. I don't want to take too much from your precious time (I understand that are you working very hard on proving the Riemann Hypothesis and the Goldbach conjecture), so I will only ask your opinion about some of the more outrageous-and to my mind-completely false, statements made by Professor Manin.
