People believe math is the truth because it gives definite answers — definite answers which of course depend on the input. GIGO and all that. But math can’t even solve math. Those not smart enough for the humanities think math is the answer to everything, when most often it can’t even ask a question worth asking.
Don’t get me wrong — math is a useful tool. But it’s only a tool, and not anything else. STEM worship is a disease.
