It does not need to be—we have always to handle the other sources of our faith and we never expected to prove the existence of God by the scientific method (equally, we need not expect scientists to prove the non-existence of God either). There have been a great number of books written in the last few years trying to ‘prove’ one thing or another about God by examining contemporary science. That is not my project: I believe in God as creator and redeemer. Believing in God as creator, I therefore believe that we can learn something about the nature of the God who created this set of things, things which work in this particular way.
I think that a good deal of contemporary so-called creationist theology has worked itself into a trap by trying to syncretize Christian understandings with certain sorts of pantheism and justify the whole thing in the name of an ecological utopianism which cannot hold water. A lot of this sort of theology is based on a notion which has gained fairly general acceptance, although it seems to me totally unfounded: the unexamined (axiomatic) presupposition that the created world is static and perfect.
