You are lying! I have shown a matheological formula that is false in mathematics:

Um von dieser Eigenschaft des Inbegriffes aller reellen algebraischen 116 Zahlen eine Anwendung zu geben, füge ich dem § 1 den § 2 hinzu, in welchem ich zeige, daß, wenn eine beliebige Reihe reeller Zahlgrößen von der Form (2) vorliegt, man in jedem vorgegebenen Intervalle Zahlen ? bestimmen kann, welche nicht in (2) enthalten sind; kombiniert man die Inhalte dieser beiden Paragraphen, so ist damit ein neuer Beweis des zuerst von Liouville bewiesenen Satzes gegeben, daß es in jedem vorgegebenen Intervalle unendlich viele transzendente, d. h. nicht algebraische reelle Zahlen gibt.
G. Cantor: Über eine Eigenschaft des Inbegriffes aller reellen algebraischen Zahlen. Crelles Journal f. Mathematik Bd. 77, S. 258 - 262 (1874

Would you care to formalize this "proof" yourself or look up a formalization which is certainly existing?
