Read the Book of Genesis but replace the word "God" with the words "The Universe" or with the words "Mother Nature".

So "God" is an explanation of existence.

Now "science" and "nature" are not synonyms. Science is a being's explanation of nature.

So math is not "nature" but a being's explanation of nature.

And "God" as a synonym of "nature" is what math is applied-to.

A being applies math to nature just like a being wrote the Book of Genesis.


Somewhat like Cat-in-the-Hat:

Numbers do not grow on trees
Leaves grow on trees
But there are a number of leaves on the tree.
