IMHO that is completely misguided, because the worlds they understand are separate
magisteria, to use
Stephan Jay Gould's phrase. Science deals with the physical world, and
theology deals with
the nonphysical world.
Only an Aristotelian can say "science deals with the physical world". This sums up
A Platonist says that science is just the modest tool/method to deal with any
Except it was Plato who thought he could understand the world by just thinking about it,
while it was Aristotle who went out to observe and let the world teach him. So who was
modest and who was arrogant?
Allowing the abandon of science in the theological field can only be an invitation to
the bad faith in there, and to the "don't ask" mentality.
