Math is just a logic, so it is just as a sequence of if-then statements with PREDICTABLE outcome. In contrast, acts of gods are NOT PREDICTABLE and even NOT EXPLAINABLE by logic.

So, this is the difference between religion and science: science (=math) predicts how things HAVE to behave, what they SHOULD consist of, and how they CAN NOT behave and what they CAN NOT consist of. That is what is ment by saying that math RULES and SHAPES universe(s).

In contrast, faith CAN NOT explain why things behave the way they do, CAN NOT PREDICT the outcome from initial conditions and can NOT say what objects/phenomena can exist and what can not.
