Precisely. We humans have decisions to make, both in science and theology.

Here's another quotation for reflection:

"Scientific knowledge is not about the universe in its wholeness but only
about some structure selected to fit the demands of the techniques and
theories available to the human mind at any given stage in the development
of scientific thought. What is true of science in this respect is true of
philosophy and theology or any other way in which the human mind might
attain knowledge."
