Hi John Mikes
It says
"The Fabric of Eternity is the author's personal view of the Universe that allows for science and theology to explore the wonders of creation in peaceful unison.' 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 physicalism.

A Platonist says that science is just the modest tool/method to deal with any 
subject.

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.
