infinite mersenne prime numbers
2^p  1, where p is prime number is always prime number, for example:
2^7  1 is 127, 2^127  1 is 170141183460469231731687303715884105727, 2^170141183460469231731687303715884105727  1 is big number, but its prime number, so it's eveidnce that there is infinity mersenne prime numbers

Unfortunately you forgot to end with QED so the proof is inadmissible.

How back to you go? Because 5 is not a Mersenne prime. And your example above, 2 is not a Mersenne prime either, so the sequence 2, 3, 7, 127, ... doesn't start with a Mersenne prime. And if you conveniently ignore the first term then 3, 7, 127, ... does match your claim, but then 31, 2147483647, ... fails your claim. You can't have it both ways.
