that neither you, nor I, nor anybody on this planet can answer that question with any certainty or proof...

Perhaps one day physics will finaly uncover that "Holy Grail" (Theory Of Everything), thereby finding the answer to your question.

My only point is that when that day comes (a very happy day for science)... we will still be at a loss to scientifically explain one of these two questions: "Where did the universe come from", or "Where did math come from". Indeed, one is the answer to the other (either universe came from math or math came from universe), therefore one will be left to the jurisdiction of philosophy rather than rigorous scientific explaination (as it can have no mathematical/logical explaination almost by definition).

Basically... your "symmetry" fails you here as it can no longer suffice as an acceptable retreat on the subject of "God and creation".
