There are matters that science cannot investigate. For example,
neurologists cannot locate a soul except as a function of brain, though
Eccles believes that there is more to soul than this function. Or devise
a scientific test to distinguish between two religious views, here
simplified. The human soul is communicated from the parents and develops
along with embryonic and fetal states (traducianism). The human soul is
implanted at conception or quickening (creationism). As to the evolution
of living things, the notion of /deus absconditus/ seems to me to fit the
declaration that all things were created and are held together by Christ.
