Taking it to the limit--and beyond

Scientific investigation, for its part, cannot either affirm or deny theological beliefs such as God’s role in creation, the origin of sin, the spiritual nature of humans or the image of God in us. These are theological beliefs not in the purview of science. In the same way the naturalistic operations of the material world and the investigation of its mechanics are matters for science and are not determined by the biblical text.—The Lost World of Scripture, page 54

Do you really believe that? People mouth it all the time, but then turn around and act as if it isn't true, or say something that totally denies it...
