I wouldn't phrase it that way, I would say math and physics are systems people put in place to measure and calculate things and things that happen in the observable world (and beyond perhaps). IOW The math and physics doesn't happen, it is just more of a tool we use to measure things that do happens.PaulSacramento wrote:The speed would still be the same even if no one measured it and the plant would still have grown to the same height if no one measured it.Nicki wrote:I'm inclined to agree with the non-Christians - maths and physics are the study and measuring of the natural world, not part of the natural world itself. Things still move if no one measures their speed, it's just that no one knows how fast they're going. A certain kind of plant may have grown to a certain height before anyone came along and said it was ten inches high, then someone else said it was 25 centimetres, and another person three hand-widths. God made (one way or another) the plant to grow as it did and I suppose he knew people would be able to measure it in different ways, but that's not a quality of the plant in itself.Kurieuo wrote:I guess there was no motion if no one saw or measured it.
Maybe you can try and understand what my wife posted.
You are confusing the essences of math/physics with the process of math/physics.
Math and physics are ways of expressing what is happening in the observable world ( and beyond perhaps), BUT they ARE happening.
