Hi meekerdb 

There's nothing wrong with science as science.
But a problem arises when you apply the results to theology.

Two completely different worlds.

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?re 
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.
