MacBook Proved God Exists? Of Course It Did
In the name of Ra, what is this? By Zeus, could it be true? One nation under Crom? Well, nothing is under Crom, but… A mathematician and logician got together to grind some equations, all of them symbolic, on a MacBook and, boom, god exists!
Mathematician Christoph Benzmüller, Free University (Berlin), and logician Bruno Woltzenlogel Paleo, Technical University (Vienna), decided that they would finish work on Kurt Godel’s theorem, which they did and now they’re saying “god exists.”
“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.
Just like that, argument over, totally amazing!
Of course, all of the people involved, including the long-dead Godel, are scientists, but the kind that needn’t gather any empirical data — two mathematicians and a logician. No data was collected, let alone tested and verified.
It’s also important to note that their symbolic logic proof of god’s existence, however pretty, does not confirm, deny or even acknowledge anything said in any religion’s holy book. It does not follow.
And, for their second act, Benzmüller and Paleo will conclusively answer, once and for all, the question of how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. Unless, of course, all of this turns out to be a hoax, which wouldn’t be surprising in the least…
