Everything in Universe then becomes much more explainable than with "idea of gods".

And, because unliky murky gods, math is just a set of logical rules, then nothing is left from theism (accepting without proof) - everything is left to logical ruling only.

So, call it "logical matherializm" or "religion of math" or "platonism" - all labels are fine with me as long as observable universe behaves by math and all objects and phenomena in it are just mathematical consequences of each other.

Santa(s) and other god(s) may rest in peace as a psychological phenomena originated from our limited knowledge and desire to literally and physically extrapolate ourselves to unknown (then) forces and phenomena.

Of course, due to self-preservation instinct we seek to defy death by various means - and because we can not do that physically, we do it mentally, creating various versions of reincarnation (and because physical is impossible, we create unphysical, or imaginable, or so-called spiritual reincarnation for which we create imaginary souls). This way we quench our self-preservation genotype with imaginary post-life. So chemistry (=math) rules again (this time in our brains).
