is that philosophy is people's opinion only. But physics (as a mathematical set of rules Universe obeys and objects in Universe originate from) exists by math itself, regardless what people call or think about it.

Hydrogen atom is the solution of Shredinger equation or a photon is a solution of QED equations regardless what philosophers call it - mathematism or anything else. Remove humans - all philosophy and other human opinion and labels will be gone - but math and physics will stay. Inverse square law as a result of interaction of spin 2 and 1 virtual bosons will be Newtonian law of gravity (or Coulomb law of electromagnetic interactions),all conservation laws stay, sin^2+cos^2 =1 will stay and thus the Universe will stay as it is - ruled by math and behaving as math prescribes.

You may call it religion without people - the fact that the Universe is strictly mathematical, but most people call this math simply PHYSICS.
