God rarely acts as the first cause in healing a person or through other direct interventions in the natural order.
If God is found to be the primary cause, after rigorous scientific inquiry, then a miracle is declared.
Second, the abandonment of philosophy as the joining discipline between science and theology has destroyed much of the dialogue that has taken place between these two fields over the centuries. Without this argument, science quickly devolves into materialism, and ceases to look out beyond itself.
The divorce from philosophy creates an environment where both theology and the natural sciences overstep their bounds.
