I was referring to your view of 'math' as having theistic connotations. Nothing about bible.

Here's those definitions you asked for:

mathematical order: ontological rules that govern

immaterial: not representable as quantum fields or spacetime events.

material: representable as quantum fields or spacetime events.

'spooky' order: any rules that are immaterial or irreduceable to material things.

God: immaterial order to the universe ('spooky' order)

theism: a belief that immaterial order is responsible for the universe.

strong reductionism thesis: there a bridge law between a higher concept (e.g., laws of physics) and a more primitive concept (e.g., symmetries of math)

real: irreduceable to a more primitive concepts

epiphenomena: phenomena that is not real but is reduceable to something more primitive

influencing in a non-physical science manner: any 'spooky' order influence in the universe that is not reduceable to the forces of physics.

Warm regards,
