["Mathematical proof" of God's existance! Fasten your seatbelts!]

I believe that God created the heavens and the earth. If He really did, it should be possible to prove it mathematically. How would the theorem be written to express such an idea as the creation of the universe?

First we must define the universe in mathematical terms.

Define "c" as the percentage of the material universe created by God, "e" as the percentage of the universe which evolved by chance, "x" as the percentage of other material substance, and "1" as 100% of the whole universe containing everything that is.

We can define the material universe as c + e + x = 1

"God created the universe" can be expressed as, "c = 1".

Theorem:

Given c + e + x = 1

Then c = 1

I have calculated the values of "c" and "e" discovering that c = 1 and e = 0. Solving c + e + x = 1 for "x" results in x = 0. Substituting the values for each quantity, we have 1 + 0 + 0 = 1, a true statement. Thus c + e + x = 1 is equivalent to c = 1. Given the fact that there is a universe, mathematical calculations prove that it is the creation of God.

To prove the theorem, it is first necessary to prove that c = 1. The eye-witness testimony of God Himself concerning creation, and the proof He gave me in my own life that He is a living Creator, prove to me that he created the heavens and the earth. I thank God for this direct proof and that there is also mathematical proof that He is the Creator.
