What role should the Scriptures play in determining ‘truth’ in science?

I need it to be 400 words

“Suppose some early Hebrews had heard a dim but distinct reverberation and asked God, “What was that?” God replied, “Oh that was the echo of the big bang from when I created the world.” They replied, “Ooh, God, that’s impressive. How’d you do that, anyway?” To which God replies that [a long, complicated equation] = the heavens and the earth.

“What the… what does that mean?” the ancient Hebrews retorted and stared blankly. Reminding himself that the average Hebrew was a shepherd and not a theoretical physicist, God replied, “Sorry. What I meant to say was, “I said, ‘Let there be light…’”—From Religion and the Sciences of Origins, p. 71

As Greenwood concludes Chapter 7 (on p. 2014) he writes “Biblical cosmology is ancient Near Eastern cosmology. Through the biblical authors God spoke in the language of the common folk… Scripture is authoritative not because it answers all of life’s questions or resolves the mysteries of science. Rather, Scripture is authoritative because it testifies on behalf of Jesus (Jn 5:39-40), one to whom all authority in heaven and on earth has been given” (Mt 28:18).

In light of these ideas and everything we’ve covered in the class thus far, write a post answering the following question:

What role should the Scriptures play in determining ‘truth’ in science? Are there any limits that we should put on scientific inquiry or is it permissible to let it play out regardless of our current understanding of Scripture? How do non-Christians tend to react when we judge their scientific inquiry based upon our understanding of the Scriptures?
