Alex,

Your views of mathematics are a religious one, so math is your God. You assume your God (math) can explain everything, even if we haven't shown exactly how this God explains everything (Godel, e.g.). So you are as dogmatic as those religious people you criticize.

However, there is an important difference -- they assume that something is behind it all, while you assume you *know* what it is behind it all. In other words, you make two leaps of faith, whereas they only make one.
