The creature can understand the creation

One issue I flagged in my talk this week at the Church and Academy conference was the extent to which Barth's Doctrine of Creation addresses the issue of the fact that science so works. Is this due to the common creator of the creature and the creation?

Robert Brennan, helpfully pointed out that this issue has been addressed extensively by Thomas F. Torrance. I need to go back and read more of what he wrote on this. A nice overview is in Alister McGrath's Intellectual Biography of Torrance, which I read several years back.
