  1. As Feser puts it, “If universals, propositions and mathematical objections are eternal and necessarily existing entities that cannot plausibly exist apart from a mind, and such a mind could not … be a finite or limited mind like ours, it follows that they must exist in an eternal and infinite mind.”

    There is one school of thought that all mathematics is contingent, entirely a human invention. For example if I were to ask, what is 10 + 6, most people would answer 16. But in "clock math" 10 + 6 is 4. This modular arithmetic forms the basis for much of number theory and many of our proofs of mathematics would be impossible without it.

    If you want to see how useful and weird it is check out http://en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Modular_arithmetic

    Math is a human invention, no deity is needed.
