Not so. A hurricane simulation is pure Newtonian physics and yet they are
far far better now, that is to say they give us better understanding of the
storm, than they were 10 years ago or even 5. Theology on the other hand
was no good for anything 400 years ago and it's no good for anything today.

No, if I feel something is unimportant I generally also feel it would be
wiser not to do it and make better use of my time doing something else.
