'Scientists prove God exists' is a headline that may have captured far greater eyeballs than Miley Cyrus' Halloween costume (of course the audiences could belong to separate demographic segments).

Two scientists cum researchers, Christoph Benzmüller of Berlin's Free University and Bruno Woltzenlogel Paleo of the Technical University in Vienna, worked on Kurt Godel's theorem to prove the existence of God in mathematical terms. Apple MacBook helped them to formalize Godel's theorem that lead to the formal evidence of God's existence.

Kurt Godel was a famous Austrian mathematician who had put forward the theory that God is an entity for which there is no greater being, and assuming that he existed in reality, then he is greater than all other being around him. God's existence is at the core of the theorem.

Godel based his theorem on the principles of modal logic. A very abstract, Godel's 'God' theorem was left unfinished because of his death in 1978. Christoph Benzmüller and Woltzenlogel Paleo used an Apple MacBook to generate an algorithm that converted Godel's abstract concepts into a series of mathematical equations.

The research project, called the '"Formalization, Mechanization and Automation of Gödel's Proof of God's Existence," is taken as an example of how powerful computers, such as Apple MacBook can help prove complex theorems quickly and accurately.

Talking to Spiegel Online, Christoph Benzmüller said, '"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.' 

He added that he did not expect the news of God's scientifically verified existence will gain so much attention, and praises Godel's theorem for being crisp and to-the-point.

He also believes that such a breakthrough as proving an abstract concept (like God's existence) scientifically with the help of competent and fast computers (in this case, Apple MacBook) can help develop the field of Artificial Intelligence.
