godel proved

provability-within-the-theory-T is not the same as truth; the theory T is incomplete.?

thus as colin leslie dean stated

Now it is said godel PROVED
"there are true mathematical statements which cant be proven"
in other words
truth does not equate with proof.

if that theorem is true
then his theorem is false

for if the theorem is true-because he proved it
then truth does equate with proof- as it is implied that his proof makes the theorem true
but his theorem says
truth does not equate with proof.
thus a paradox
