Scientists "prove" that God exists by analyzing a theory posed by mathematician Kurt Godel. On Oct. 29, The Inquisitr reported that two scientists looked closely into Godel's "existence of God" theory and what they came up with is just as basic as it is confusing.
Here's what Christoph Benzmüller of Berlin’s Free University and Bruno Woltzenlogel Paleo came up with: "God, by definition, is that for which no greater can be conceived. God exists in the understanding. If God exists in the understanding, we could imagine Him to be greater by existing in reality. Therefore, God must exist" (via The Inquisitr).
So scientists "prove" God exists by providing a philosophical answer that fails to give concrete reason -- but people are sort of rolling with it. However, the scientific theory posed above checks out and is sound... scientifically, even if you don't really understand it. It was basically a numbers game... and two guys proved the theory using their Macbooks.
"It’s totally amazing that from this argument led by Gödel, all this stuff can be proven automatically in a few seconds or even less on a standard notebook," said Benzmüller. This really makes you miss your college philosophy class, doesn't it?
Scientists "prove" God exists by a check of Godel's theorems and axioms... is that enough to end the debate? Not even close.
