Truthy math

Slightly evil question: is TeX truthiness for math? It's so beautifully typeset, it feels so true.

I suspect that this truthy-making property is parasitic on the evident authoritativeness of mathy-looking textual material in general.

I wonder if acceptance rates would differ for the same paper typeset in LaTeX vs. MS Word Equation Editor.
