Father Jaki is the author of more than two dozen books on the differences and similarities between science and religion. He was also among the first to claim that Gödel's incompleteness theorem is relevant for theories of everything (TOE) in theoretical physics. In Mathematical logic, Gödel's incompleteness theorems, proved by Kurt Gödel in 1931 are two Theorems stating inherent limitations of all but the most A theory of everything ( TOE) is a putative Theory of Theoretical physics that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena Gödel's theorem states that any mathematical theory that includes certain basic facts of number theory (and is computably enumerable, i. In Computability theory, traditionally called Recursion theory, a set S of Natural numbers is called recursively enumerable, computably e. whose formulas can be explicitly listed) will be either incomplete or inconsistent. Since any 'theory of everything' will certainly be consistent, it must be either incomplete or unable to prove basic facts about the integers.
