(1) "the number of Goldbach's pairs increases with the magnitude of the sum" needs proof.
(2) "It is highly improbable that..." Highly improbable (in this context, that's not a claim in probability theory, it is just a human expectation) things happen. Look at Skewes' and Graham's numbers.
(2) "Mathematical logic could even exclude it." Could?
Do you really see no difference between "The (scant) evidence I have seen suggests to me soandso" and "I have proved soandso"? This point has been put to you a number of times, so I suppose the answer is no, you don't. Bizarre.
