Nature's God and Math

All that has by nature with systematic method been arranged in the universe seems both in part and as a whole to have been determined and ordered in accordance with number, by the forethought and the mind of him that created all things; for the pattern was fixed like a preliminary sketch, by the domination of number pre-existent in the mind of the world-creating God, number conceptual only and immaterial in every way, but at the same time the true and eternal essence, so that with reference to it, as to an artistic plan, should be created all these things, time, motion, the heavens, the stars, all sorts of revolutions.

-- Nicomachus of Gerasa (60-120 AD) Source: God, Mathematics, and Intelligent Design in Antiquity

Did you know there is "No Such Thing as a Scientific Argument Against the Existence of God"?
