"Don't planets obey mathematical laws? Are you saying that one should not try to use mathematics as a way to explain planetary motion? That would be odd, given the origins of calculus."
No. Only mathematical objects "obey" mathematical laws. The history of calculus is irrelevant. In the philosophy of science a distinction is made between the context of discovery and the context of justification.
