There some very unexplainable things in science. As science matures, it becomes more and more abstract. Weird and nonsensical as a matter of fact. It tells us that our understanding of of reality is very limited, simple and naive.

It is a leap of Faith to ascribe this to a Creator. But it also take leap of Faith to claim that a deity doesn’t exist.

I think mathematics would be impossible were it not for a creator. The very mathematics that works consistently on a Earth the same way it does on Mars and beyond (physics, geometry, mathematical modeling, engineering, right down to quantum mechanics, and so on and so on) would be nothing but random gibberish if not designed by a creator.

You can explore the universe of mathematics with absolute certainty that its principles are rock solid.

How would that be possible if life just randomly evolved?

The precision of mathematics is an abstract world unto itself that someone designed down to the tiniest detail.

To imagine that it just evolved out of nothingness is beyond absurd.

As a final note, I think all research mathematicians would agree that when a new discovery is made, the mathematicians know full well that the concept was just waiting to be discovered. A mathematical discovery is akin to finding a dinosaur bone in Utah. Someone or something is responsible for that mathematical concept's existence.

It is not created by the mathematician...it is merely lying in wait for the mathematician to stumble upon it. Just like an archeological relic or an ancient bone.

Sheesh.

I meant to say "I think mathematics would NOT be impossible were it not for a creator.

Can’t remember who said it originally but it’s been said that we are far more ignorant about reality now compared to the reality of those who lived 500 years ago simply because we are now confronted with newly-discovered reality at a pace that far exceeds our understanding of how that newly-discovered reality actually works.

In other words, compared with those who lived 500 years ago, we are far more aware that there is much more that we don’t know about reality.
