    supposedly this theory pretty much shut down 20th century mathematics, but i still don't understand it quite well

    These theorems did not shut down mathematics but wete an attempt to explain mathematics and logic in more of a macro sense....the theorems basically dealt with 3 elements...mathematics,logic and systems...and they have still not been thoroughly vetted...

    but David Hilbert was attempting to unify all of mathematics in the early 20th century before Godel explained that it was impossible

    i thought they all already verified, many mathematicians consider it the "greatest result in mathematics in the 20th century"

    In all due respect, this seems like "Answer the Answer" to me, correct me if I'm wrong, please, no harm intended ... S3DetailedTruth

    Yes the premise and abstract algebraic theorems were a great find...but they are not fully accepted by all mathematicians since they cannot hold all logic universally...
    which was the original premise...

    so Godel probably wasn't thinking that these theorems should be accepted universally then?

    Yes he was thinking that as it was his premise...my point is that not all mathematicians agree that his theorems are robust enough...

    There are tons of references on the Internet, such as the Google search below:


    Can someone explain Gödel's incompleteness theorems in layman terms?

    The problem with Godel's incompleteness is that it is so open for exploitations and problems once you don't do it completely right. You can prove and disprove the existence of god using this theorem, as well the correctness of religion and its incorrectness against the correctness of science. The number of horrible arguments carried out in the name of Godel's incompleteness theorem is so large that we can't even count them all.

    everything in this universe can be explained by mathematics....
    we are no where near discovering the master equations....
    the math behind the pyramids are still a mystery to us...
    which leads me to my point...most of modern day mathematicians
    and scientist are more concerned with equations of power and destruction
    than explaining the universe on a base level...this has been proven time and time again...
    4000 years ago the inverse was true...

    one love
