Eli explained the reason why.

To enter Unicode letters you can go for the "TeX input method":

    C-x RET C-\ TeX RET

At this point you will see "-\" at the start of the mode line.  Now
enter (without the spaces):

    \ t h e t a

and Emacs will "collapse" the input to: θ (that's the theta).  To
switch back to your old input method press:


Actually, with C-\ you can toggle the input methods.
