Mathematics, discovered or invented?

That is interesting you bring it up though Crow, logic is a key defining aspect of math and I think it should be considered.
I agree that logic was created, someone/thing must have specifically gone out of their way to deem something logical. But what is logical? Newtonian physics is logical, quantum physics is most definitely not. But who's to say that if quantum physics was discovered first it would remain illogical.
Maintaining my stance in the original debate, I think logic is independent of whether or not math was created, because it itself had to be defined before we could claim anything was logical or not.
