You are right. The problem has to be tackled from another side:

Proof of the validity of Goldbach's conjecture
______________________________________________

According to the conjecture, every even integer greater than 4 can be expressed as the sum of two primes.

Let?s consider the infinite series of uneven integers.
Such series contains an infinite number of products p = ab, where a and b are primes.
To each product p corresponds a single sum s = a + b, s being of course an even integer.

The question is, are all even integers the sum of two primes?
In other words, could an even integer be the sum of two uneven integers, at least one of them not being a prime?

The answer looks straightforward:

A sum s can be written as s = (a+n) + (b-n), where n is an even integer less than b.
The terms (a+n) and/or (b-n) can be prime numbers, but being ordinary uneven numbers does not imply that an even number cannot be a sum of two primes.

This answer leads to the conclusion that any even integer can indeed be expressed as the sum of two primes.
