Proponent hardlly. Axiomites are the only proponents of faith based mathematics that I'm aware of. The rest of us would settle for a few demonstrations of truth now and again.

Well faith based logic isn't any better than faith based mathematics. Jesuits are also noted for their ability to argue Roman catholicism logically and often quite credibly right down to its faith based canons. No diference between them and modern mathematikers who even have a pope as well. Just different faith based assumptions of truth.
