In mathematical Platonism, abstract objects exist in a sort of ideal realm separate from our own. Platonism certainly strayed into religion frequently in its ancient forms (e.g. Gnosticism), but neoplatonism is a bit more rigorous I suppose. In either case, it isn't testable or particularly convincing.

This is why Plato gave up on it. Why other people decided to run with it anyway is beyond me.
