Where did you use any properties of the prime numbers other than the estimated number of prime numbers? Yes, there is a huge number of possible sums of two odd primes, so statistically you expect ever large even number to be the sum of two primes. But you have to show why it is _impossible_ that there is some number that is "missed" by all these different sums.
