Thank you, James! God did not create mathematics, nor did He create physics.
God created matter. "Physics" is just man's feeble attempt to grasp the true
essence of the matter God created. Mathematics is just the language man uses
in these attempts. As man's insights into the true nature of "material world" grows,
the mathematical "language" we employ to conceptualize/formalize our insights--
which, BTW, may still not be the true essence--has evolved to this end. In the
end, however, physics is still man's attempt to understand, and mathematics is
still just man's language to verbalize our understanding (again, not necessarily
being the truth). Both are man's creations, not God's.
(BTW, George, I read your response to James before writing this...)
