Michael: Creation 'Science' is for Christians who Lack FaithCreationism and Intelligent Design are simply a symptom of lack of faith in God. IDers don't really believe that God can reveal his mystery in scientific discovery, not just in ancient texts.
By searching for the fingerprints of God on the evolution of life, IDers seek factual crutches for their faith. In other words, they are a frightened and insecure unbelievers, denying reality in order to defend their outdated interpretation of dead old words. They must think that if they can't find 'scientific' proof that God took an active hand in the development of life, that God somehow becomes irrelevant to human life.
Their spiritual intuitions are stunted. "If you need factual proof of God, then your faith in God is weak."
