Well I certainly cannot; however, a brilliant philosopher and close-friend of Albert Einstein has indeed provided a mathematical and logical proof of His existence. You cannot state it is false and just dismiss it. It has been mathematically verified several times.

This friend of Einstein, namely Dr. Kurt Godel has proven it. When Godel died in 1978, he left behind a tantalizing theory based on principles of modal logic, that a higher being must exist. The details of the mathematics involved in his ontological proof are complicated, but in essence the Austrian was arguing that, by definition, God is that for which no greater can be conceived. And while God exists in the understanding of the concept, we could conceive of him as greater if he existed in reality. Therefore, he must exist.

Even at the time, the argument was not exactly a new one. For centuries, many have tried to use this kind of abstract reasoning to prove the possibility or necessity of the existence of God. But the mathematical model composed by Godel ( how coincidental is his name!) proposed a proof of the idea. Its theorems, axioms, assumptions can indeed be expressed as mathematical equations. And that means they can be proven.

That is where Christoph Benzmuller of Berlin's Free University and his colleague, Bruno Woltzenlogel Paleo of the Technical University in Vienna, enter. Using an ordinary MacBook computer, they have shown that Godel's proof was correct, at least on a mathematical level, by way of higher modal logic. Their initial submission on the arXiv.org research article server is called "Formalization, Mechanization and Automation of GĂ¶del's Proof of God's Existence." I suggest you research this before dismissing it...

Just because you can list a set of assumptions in a mathematical proof, does not mean the premise of those assumptions are true. Just because we can conceive the concept of God, does not make God real. You took their findings out of context.

We can not. We only can believe that there is an almighty power that surpasses us human beings

My apologies I'm not having luck editing tonight

There are many scientific and rational proofs of God. Kurt Godel has a math based proof.

False.

You cannot. That's why it's called a faith based belief.

You are right there. But I really believe that through systematic reasoning we can.
