Theology is the critical study of the nature of the divine. It is taught as an academic discipline, typically in universities and seminaries.
Theology must either regress to blind faith or progress towards free philosophy.
Friedrich Engels, Outlines of a Critique of Political Economy (January 1844), Published in Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher [1]
Theological condemnation of others, which breaks off fellowship in either judgment or contempt, is impermissible.
Ernst Käsemann Commentary on the Romans (1980), p. 369: Describing Paul's view
If complex organisms demand an explanation, so does a complex designer. And it's no solution to raise the theologian's plea that God (or the Intelligent Designer) is simply immune to the normal demands of scientific explanation. To do so would be to shoot yourself in the foot. You cannot have it both ways. Either ID belongs in the science classroom, in which case it must submit to the discipline required of a scientific hypothesis. Or it does not, in which case get it out of the science classroom and send it back into the church, where it belongs.
