Why Theology is the most important subject.

So, this what various fields of studies really are, in order for lest important to most important.

Commerce\ economics: The study of how to misuse the resources of the world God gave us to satisfy individual human wants, rather than the needs of humanity as a whole.
Science and Mathematics: the study of the world which God created.
Humanities: the study of the creatures which God made in his image to rule of the the world he created.
Theology: the study of God.

So there you go: Theology wins. Although given we live in a post modern world, what is truth anyway......

Science is the study of the world God created, yes. Mathematics is not.

Are you saying that God did not create the laws of mathematics?

yomcat said...

Mathematics has nothing to do with the world at all...

qwandor, yomcat, that's disgusting. I hope you are both joking :P
Science, especially (or: most obviously) physics, is the application of advanced mathematics. In fact, physics used to be called "Applied Mathematics". Maths is to science what theology is to the church: the theory behind it all. The principles behind the practice. This comic will help you: http://xkcd.com/435/

Anyway, Nathan, I would switch Science/Maths with Humanities.
