On the contrary, all the discussion of religion of mathematics here
would better be moved to elsewhere (ROM?), while on FOM it would be
good to focus on technical issues, on mathematics.
There are many deductive systems which may serve as foundations for
mathematics. A technical understanding of their definitions, their
interrelation and their application is a necessary prerequisite for
gaining an informed opinion on their relative merits.
