Default Metaphysics, Philosophy, and Theology

I just had an idea for a magic system which takes into account competing metaphysics questions and it led me to wondering what the best skill for covering metaphysics was.

The Philosophy skill is described as a system of principles to live by, and notes that if you study a religious philosophy buy Theology instead. This seems to imply that it's mostly about Value Theory. Does it also cover metaphysics, and epistemology? Does it cover those only in relationship to the value theory? And does it cover logic?

Theology is described as the study of a particular religion, including it's god(s), cosmology, doctrines, scriptures, etc. This seems to include the religions explorations of metaphysics, epistemology, and value theory.

If I wanted to have a skill that covered metaphysics without covering value theory what skill should I use?
