This precisely sums up Alexander Pope's fear. If science can come up with equations to explain things, then maybe science could come up with an equation to disprove God.

Why am I being thumbed down? I wasn't suggesting that there could be such an equation, I'm saying at that time that's what he and other religious folk thought.

Which one? Or which set of equations, and how and why.

"God, by definition, is that for which no greater can be conceived. God exists in the understanding. If God exists in the understanding, we could imagine Him to be greater by existing in reality. Therefore, God must exist."

This statement doesn't prove God's existence. Only solipsism would validate that. And I can conceive of quite a few things better than a creepy judgmental father figure who allows suffering all over the world even though he supposedly has the power to stop it.

[T]here is an evident absurdity in pretending to demonstrate a matter of fact, or to prove it by any arguments a priori. Nothing is demonstrable, unless the contrary implies a contradiction. Nothing, that is distinctly conceivable, implies a contradiction. Whatever we conceive as existent, we can also conceive as non-existent. There is no being, therefore, whose non-existence implies a contradiction. Consequently there is no being, whose existence is demonstrable.
-- David Hume, taken from the "Criticisms" section of your link

Which is, of course, why you cited an equation which "proves God". keep backpedaling, bro.
