I have thought heavily about this:

***This suggests to me that God may indeed
supercede mathematical equations if God
installed or composed them in the first place.***

The danger I see in this view is that we are stuck here in this general logical scheme by which we live and survive in the world, yet this is the same scheme in which we come to believe in God. To say that God supercedes it suggests, I think, that all the reasons that we come to believe in God are all created by him in the first place (which this idea itself is based on our logical conceptual scheme). It is horribly self-referential, don't you think?

I think the mistake we might make is that we divide up the world into logical components (God, world, reality, math, logic, etc), and these compenents make sense for our survival, but maybe this is only for our own advantage. Maybe everything is just one 'lump of something' and we and the universe, etc are all part of that 'lump of something' which even includes our logical conceptual scheme. Trying to get to the foundation of this 'lump of something' is grand and all, but it might be a hopeless endeavor to come to fixed answers since in order for their to be a foundation to the 'lump of something' it would need to be a component of the 'lump of something' and that compenent is itself only a part of the 'lump of something' as it exists in its wholeself.

Of course, I'm using my logical conceptual scheme to form even this view, so I'm bound to be limited by whatever limitations that I do not know of that are binding to me and my logic schemes - darn it! The whole thing is a mystery.... Have a good weekend Mike.
