Could you give a reference?

If you looked at http://luttgens.monsite-orange.fr/page1/
you would find the formlula log(n) = 0.770535 log(N) - 0.564174, which
represents a straight line relation.
From that formula, one obtains
log(n) = 4.8296 for log(N) = 7, and
log(n) = 5.6 for log(N) = 8
Those results are close to the real observations.

The relation shows that no value of N can lead to n = 0.
Hence, it vindicates Goldbach's conjecture.
