    Scientists say they've proved God exists, and then it gets complicated

    5 hrs ago
    There is a god. Or so say Christoph Benzmuller and Bruno Woltzenlogel Paleo, two Berlin-based computer scientists who recently announced they've proven a decades-old theory by mathematician Kurt Godel, which makes a case for the existence of God. The theory, known as Godel's ontological proof, is summed up like this: "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."
    Did Benzmuller and Paleo lose you there? No wonder, because there's a whole lot of complicated math that goes into proving the theory, which the duo worked using a simple number-crunching program on a personal computer. The purpose of the exercise was to illustrate how computers have evolved to solve our most complicated problems. We're just glad they cleared up that whole God question along the way.

    Although both articles are good, Gorilla is correct, the Spiegel article is much better. It concludes in this manner:


    Ultimately, the formalization of Gödel's ontological proof is unlikely to win over many atheists, nor is it likely to comfort true believers, who might argue the idea of a higher power is one that defies logic by definition. For mathematicians looking for ways to break new ground, however, the news could represent an answer to their prayers.

    Holy Logic: Computer Scientists 'Prove' God Exists - SPIEGEL ONLINE - International

    Two scientists have formalized a theorem regarding the existence of God penned by mathematician Kurt Gödel. But the God angle is somewhat of a red herring -- the real step forward is the example it sets of how computers can make scientific...

    But Kemetstry, please tell me where you found the picture below, its not in either article, lol ...

    Yeah, I do. lol!

    I read enough to know that I don't need math calculations to prove there is a God.
