The doctrine of creation isn't part of science, but part of its
subject matter (i.e., the physical world) is also part of the subject
matter of science. What science has to say about the world is of
interest to theology because - when placed in the context of Christian
theology (N.B.) - it helps us to understand God's activity in the world.
