I’ve had a lot of interesting discussions here with people about the philosophy of math, but I feel it often derails threads rather than aids discussion. So I’m making this thread to have this discussion without those ill effects.
Do math and it’s related abstract objects (numbers geometric shapes) exist? If it does does it exist only in the mind? Did humans invent it or discover it? If humans discovered math, did God create math, is math part of God? Or something else?
I’m a math major so this topic is pretty interesting to me.
To make my arguement brief, I’d say math is objectlively true. Math is true even if nobody knows it, thus it exists outside the mind and so it is discovered by us rather than invented as a tool to use.
I believe mathematics is part of the Divine Nature. As it’s true all truth has to be contained in the Truth, who is Jesus.
Ok have at it, I know I’m not the only one here who likes thinking about this.
