In the end, it was the design he saw in both the universe and the biological world that convinced him there must be a Designer.

Many prominent scientists – including Darwin, Einstein and Planck – have considered the concept of God very seriously. And whether the math was designed as such or by chance happened to behave as such is another matter and debate. So the reader should not use the responses contained in this book to infer the general attitude among scientists toward the existence of God or the question of origins.

So we have three different mathematical concepts from three different areas of mathematics, thought of by three different people in three radically different parts of human history.

However, the more scientists studied the universe, the more they realized that this view was incompatible with the observations at hand.
