As Esther McIntosh and others suggest, theology can be taught in the sense of what people have to say about God without belief. But the question arises whether theology has a subject matter in the same sense as physics or history. It would be odd for an astronomer to say: "I don't think the Sun, Moon and stars exist, but I am going to tell you how they might behave if they did." The status of theology remains problematic.
