If God=math, Why To Have One More Synonim?

If math rules everything, and thus you decided to call it God, it is just a re-labeling. Why to add one more synonim then? We all know that mathematical symmetries create what we call natural laws and natural interactions (forces), and those laws and interactions result in all objects and all phenomena in universe.

So, why to introduce one more word to confuse ourself (or at least those who still feels that God and math are different "animals", or at least those who feels that God>math?)

I would rather go opposite way - eliminate word "God" from all holy books as confusing and obsolete one, and replace it by the word "math". Then most of what is said in those books become almost literal truth.
