A being exist which reconciles all positive properties in itself. That has been proven by the legendary mathematician Kurt Goedel by means of a complicated formula. Two scientists have scrutinized this proof of God - and have approved it.
[...] The existence of God can in future be assumed to be a proven logical theorem. {{Like many theorems of ZFC.}}
[Translated from the German text of SPIEGEL-ONLINE

Goedel's ontological proof has been analysed for the first-time with an unprecedent degree of detail and formality with the help of higher-order theorem provers. {{An important example for the advantage of formalizing and the safety gained by checking theorems by means of theorem provers}}
