It would appear incredibly coincidental that our mathematics seems to make predictions, such as black holes or gravitational curving of space/time which turn out later to be verified by observation.

It would seem there are two possibilities either our brain builds all our observations using a mathematical algorithm or two so what we observe seems to have a mathematical basis. Or

The universe works on a mathematical basis and we have discovered it's secret. Either way and I would probably subscribe to the first (Kantian) style explanation, mathematics does not seem like a naturally occurring phenomena, which would suggest that either our minds or the universe or both had some form of mathematician for a designer. Perhaps someone can explain how maths could occur naturally.
