God and Maths - I kid you not

This is not an education, it's a disgrace. From the maths curriculum of an American religious college:

Students will examine the nature of God as they progress in their understanding of mathematics. Students will understand the absolute consistency of mathematical principles and know that God was the inventor of that consistency. Mathematical study will result in a greater appreciation of God and His works in creation. The students will understand the basic ideas of both differential and integral calculus and its importance and historical applications. The students will recognize that God created our minds to be able to see that the universe can be calculated by mental methods.

Via Ars Mathematica. There are few things that scare me more than the rise of religious America, and things seem to be getting worse. Somebody stop these nutters before its too late.

Good Math, Bad Math has more, and a commenter links to this 'Professor of Mathematics' with 'devotionals connected to mathematical content'. A selection:

Devotional Title Course Topic Scripture References
Does God Change? Development of the Derivative Ps 11:3, Ps. 107:1, Ps 118:1, Ps. 117:2, Lam 5:19, Dan 4:34
In the Eigenspace of Christ Eigenspaces 2 Corin 3:7-18
God's Zero Tolerance for Error Numerical Integration and Error Bounds Philippians 3:1--9

And a couple of topics in statistics:

Success in God's Eyes Binomial Distribution Luke 18:9-14, Mark 9:33-35
Was Jesus Average? Normal Distribution Isaiah 53:1-6

    I always thought advanced calculus was clear proof of the existence of Purgatory.
