[ExI] math problem solved?

The inability of the mathematical community to figure out if the proofs of
the ABC conjecture and the Riemann hypothesis are valid makes me wonder if
that could have implications for another unsolved problem, is P= NP? If
they are not equal then you’d expect it would be fundamentally easier to
check a proof than find a proof, but then why are world class
mathematicians unable to check them? If I have a valid proof of the ABC
conjecture but it would take you as much brain power to understand it as it
would for you to find a proof of it on your own have I accomplished
anything of value, would there be any point in you reading it?
