Algebraic geometry in finite fields

Algebraic geometry can be summed up (and perhaps wrongly) as the study of polynomials over a field with n variables.    We denote

Along those lines, I found this rather fun statement:

Anyone want to attempt a proof?

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
