The semantics of our mathematics is arbitrary. The concepts they are assigned to however are constant and universal. I guess in affirming that, they do seem to take on a transcendental, Platonic quality in relation to a materialistic universe. Pythagoras believed the essential nature of the universe was based on number. I wonder if Bahnsen would be willing to accept the idea of number as the end-all rather than assert that God created number.
