Main Question or Discussion Point

Is there a point to geometric proofs? The ones that I have encountered are so obvious that it almost seems useless to have to use them for anything.

I always hated the ones that we had to do in high school geometry class. They destroy everything enjoyable about solving a geometric problem by reducing it to a systematic process. If you don't like them don't let it turn you off from geometry or proofs in general.

The purpose of Geometric proofs is to understand the truth or falsity of a Geometric relationship or Geometric statement. Performing easy proofs develops your ability to do proofs which enables you enough intellectual conditioning and content knowledge to perform more difficult proofs.
