George: You wrote: " I'm beginning to wonder if it really makes any
difference that God has been proven to exist? I mean; who cares? It
seems to be only an idle curiosity."
My take on that question is twofold:
1. The heart has reasons the mind cannot comprehend. I believe Pascal (a
fair mathematician BTW) first said that. In my case, that is how I
"proved God existed." Or, rather, how He manifested himself to me, at age
31. The neat thing about this method is that it is available to
everybody, rich or poor, intellectual or a 5th grade dropout.
2. Your method (you have said) is understandable only by people with
certain educational qualifications. Not having that particular set, I
cannot parse your work to appreciate (or reject) it. So it is of
essentially no use to me. I already know God exists; you have an esoteric
way of "proving" what I already know to be true. That's fine, but why
should I care? It is if you came up with a fancy set of mathematics to
prove that my wife loves me. So what? I know that far beyond what any set
of equations might say.
