Richard Grant continues his theological experiment:

Creationists (and I include proponents of so-called ‘Intelligent Design’ in that) don’t understand science, obviously: but they also fail to understand faith. Creationism is used as a proof, as evidence for the existence of (a) God...This is not a philosophical objection: I’m not saying that faith fails to be faith if there’s proof. I’m saying that if your ‘proof’ is shown to be false then you’re utterly screwed. So if you tie your faith to a ‘proof’ you actually end up trying to prove that your proof is true, rather than seeking out ‘truth’. Which is the cleft stick Creationists find themselves in.
