## Mathematical proof

A mathematical proof is a step-by-step demonstration of the truth or falsity of a mathematical theorem. Proofs build on axioms, which are statements that are assumed to be true without proof, as well as previously-proved theorems.

Several types of proofs are widely used, such as proof by contradiction and proof by induction. Proofs that rely only on certain simple forms of reasoning are sometimes called elementary proofs.

Andrew Schlafly cited the lack of a Wikipedia page on "elementary proof" as proof of bias in Wikipedia. Ironically, at that time Conservapedia did not even have a page on "proof".

## Scientific proof

Science is the tool of the devil. All branches of science are satan's horns.

## Biblical proof

There is no god. The Bible proves nothing.

## Problem of Evil

Without editing the previous article, I must challenge its assertions:

Omniscience - Infinite knowledge

Omnipotence - Infinite power

Omnipresence - The property of transcending the boundries of space and time

Evil - The antithesis of good

If one follows the new testament and asserts God is benevolent (all-good)...

Why does evil exist in the world?

God's omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresense, or goodness must be suspect, unless one accepts that evil does not exist.
