No. All you can say with certainty is that _for the cases you have provided_, the number of Goldbach sums increases as N increases. You haven't provided anything of substance besides your assertion.

Now _that_ would indeed be a useful result. The problem is that nobody has come up with such a formula.

No it doesn't. It only provides a reason why you believe that GC is true. Being as gentle as I can here, no one is interested in your beliefs. Lots of mathematicians believe that GC is true, but they recognize that belief without proof isn't mathematics.

Sorry to break it to you, but it doesn't, at least for any definition of "vindicate" that I could find.
