But I just wanted to share the following:
Although an atheist, Erdos often referred to an imaginary book in which God has inscribed all the most beautiful mathematical proofs. Whenever he thought that a proof or argument led to a particularly exquisite epiphany, he'd say, "This one's from the book." (Alas, none of the arguments for the existence of God are even close to being in God's book.)I suspect that some of the people who came up with such arguments thought they were proofs from the book, though. Indeed, are there any long arguments for the existence of God, or are all they all the sort of thing that can be written in half a page or so?
(And although Erdos' book is imaginary, Martin Aigner and Gunter Ziegler's Proofs from THE BOOK is real.)
