Default ONCE AGAIN: a seemingly fresh proof of the Twin Prime Conjecture.... NOT

A am not qualified to peer review the following article that I just read in Academia.edu.

I am convinced (but not even close to proving it) that there are indeed infinite pairs of Twin Primes.

OTOH I don’t believe it is going to be simple or straightforward finding a proof.

Based on that ONLY I am skeptical of the proof on the following article.

Can anyone here try to see if it has any validity?

Your instincts are good. It's total nonsense. There are many, many red flags before you even start reading the "proof".

I suppose the author's previously having published proofs of the Riemann Hypothesis and Fermat's last Theorem - in the same publication, of course - might also be grounds for skepticism.
