    Default Boolean method issue

    I'm trying to program a boolean method that compares two doubles of an Object and if they are within 0.00001 of each other they are equal
       public boolean equals ( 2D that )
          if ( ((Math.abs(x-that.x) >= 0.00001) ||
                (Math.abs(x-that.x) <= 0.00001))
                && ((Math.abs(y-that.y) >= 0.00001) ||
                (Math.abs(y-that.y) <= 0.00001)))         return true;
          else                                           return false;
