My point is that if there was no creation, there would have been
nothing to measure. Therefore measuring is mankind since man
created it.

Ephesians 1:4
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:


This passage speaks of measure, the axiom of choice, and relational operators before the existence of creation

Isaiah 40:26
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these [things], that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that [He is] strong in power; not one faileth.

God numbers the stars in the sky. Were they not created before man?

And He names them - which is to define a bijunctive function from the set of numbers He ordains to the set of names He ascribes. He is doing math before He ever made man.

Hey I would like to ask the Math understanders how they see Math and how Math is actually around us
You have received lots of good advise... I also agree that Math and Numbers are involved in our lives in more ways than we know.
One of my favorite old TV shows was 'Numb3rs' - where a mathematician uses math equations to help the FBI solve crimes...
Not sure if my Mom saw my aptitude for math before or after she began to give me brain teasers for my birthday and christmas... Funny, I now refer to my job as an analyst as being a professional problem solver...
I do the same for my kids... Online Math Games for Fun
As an athlete and advocate for physical fitness and health - there are lots of numbers, math, structure program planning that involved math for weight training, weight management, running programs, meal preparations etc...
Sports are all about math, numbers and statistics...
Games are a game of numbers, and optimization strategies...

Here is a link to a great article about a number of Movies that involve varying intriguing stories where Math plays a major aspect of the plot or demonstrates Math's significant implications in our surroundings...

Math is also the most straightforward, unambiguous field.





a(b+c)=(ab)+(ac). Politicize that, if you can.


Math can also SAVE YOUR LIFE!
