In the natural sciences we study all that God has made: from the rocks, trees, and creatures He made, the laws which govern that creation to the organs and cells of the bodies God gave mankind with which to cultivate, inhabit, and discover His world.
Of course, the natural sciences have hugely beneficial applications—engineering, medicine, and on and on—and our studies aim to equip our students for those good endeavors. However, before the natural sciences are "practical," they are yet another mode worship: we study the world God has made in awe of his wisdom and power. Moreover, as we study the human body in all its complexities, we learn about the kind of creatures God made us to be, remembering the worlds of the Psalm 100: "Be assured that the Lord, he is God; it is he that has made us, and not we ourselves."
