Mathematics is not the language of Nature.
Three days ago, Sabine Hossenfelder wrote a text about the role of mathematics in the society:

Mathematics, the language of nature.
That is not even a hypothesis. It is an nice poetic metaphor.

Then we read:
Edward Measure's answer is Yes, Darwin has been debunked:

I think [Sabine] is a bit delusional on this point. Math, unlike language, is an unnatural activity in the sense that our remote ancestors almost never needed it.
and this is not even metaphor, but just purely wrong.
