We can all agree that a linear mathematical argument is...

If (A) is true, if (B) is true, then (C) is true.

We can all agree that...

(A). Mathematics proves the concept of Infinite exist.

We might or might not agree that...

(B). God can only be defined as Infinite. While there are clearly many ways to define "God". Anything less than a definition of infinite, is only a "powerful" entity of varying degrees. It therefore is axiomatic, that God is inherently infinite.

(C). Therefore mathematics proves God's existence.

*Surely this only proves that the "concept" of God exist. However it is well established in the philosophy world. That concepts can be proven to exist, by the consequences of their existence. God is a priori, proven through the empirical means of mathematics, and the consequences of his existence. Some good, some bad.

Which god? Surely the first to manifest itself, yes? So not the Jewish/Xian/Muslim god, right?

None, of the above...All of the above. Infinite in all things, No beginning, or "manifestation". No end. All things. Including evil, and insanity. Yet the greatest of all things is LOVE.

Sadly this post is destined for deletion, as the moderators, do not like talk of God. As it is contentious.

"

But there are many DIFFERENT kinds of infinity defined in Mathematics and none of them are the kind you need here.

Of course....many...many kinds. Yet it is easily understood, that there is an infinite set that includes all other infinite, and finite sets. That is the set I need here. You would not argue such a set exists.

Does not the number 1, a finite number. Contain an INFINITE number, of infinitesimals?

Your intelligence is greatly needed, and appreciated!
