Continuing from the bank comparison in Math is Pope.
It would be better to say that bitcoiners blindly trust arithmetic, not math. They don’t understand how numbers are used and misused, in real measurement or in programming. When comparing their Holy Grail with the Horrible Establishment, they blindly use the fake numbers provided by the government. GDP, inflation, unemployment, etc, are brazenly mismeasured, changing their “standards” every year for propaganda purposes.
By contrast, older conventional numbermen have a much better sense of reality, and often openly recognize the fakeness of the numbers. Jeffrey Gundlach, a strictly conventional hedger and trader, shows far more independent MATH thinking than the bitcoiners.
