Maybe. Maybe not.
Another thing to consider Farsight. Only God knows everything about everything. A person with proven expertise in one area may have the interest but be out of his league in another (without the required study). The fact that his critical thinking skills are less developed in the non-expert area does not reflect negatively at all on his competence in his proven area.
It does not say anything of the sort and you are merely speculating.Let’s wait for the evidence to out ,shall we?
This, is in fact, a very good point. So to you I say “Touche!”

Newton from a young age was taken with patterns, of regularities. As he learned mathematics he used it–geometry–to describe the patterns. But it was part and parcel of the New Science that mathematics was integral with nature. Until that time, it was assumed that no theory based on math was anything but hypothetical. Newton attributed those patterns to the Creator. Darwin also saw patterns–of a different sort–but did not attribute them to the Creator, because he had ceased to believe–for personal, not scientific reasons.
