You can come up with a different kind of algebraic structure where there are provably finitely many twin primes, and show his argument fails there. Or you can do like collag3n above and consider tetaprimes to show his argument fails. But he doesn't understand those, so he will dismiss it. By the way, you might be interested in a simple proof of Bael's conjecture, also very hilarious: The Simple Proof of Beal's Conjecture  xkcd

Doesn't seem like the OP had much luck publishing his revolutionary results: https://www.ams.org/editflow/ef/stat...&cr=A394166B12

Read my post top of page 5 (if you didn't catch the flaw in the previous post I made): none of my tetaprimes can eliminates all tetatwins (they eliminate a infinitely small portion of them at each step), there are still an infinite of tetatwins at each step but in the end, there is NO tetatwin at all. NONE !!!! But the reasoning is exactly the one you have. Can you explain why ? (this is basic math, no need to be Terence)

At least I Tried Ok, look again at my sieve (top of page 5). There is no way any of my tetaprime can eliminate all tetatwins. They NEVER RUN OUT like you say. At each step and forever, despite the infinite number of tetamultiples sieved, there will be infinitely many tetatwin candidates left. You would think there are infinitely many tetatwins. Nonetheless I dare you to give me 1 (only 1) example of tetatwin that will never be sieved.
