IMO , these creationism-vs-evolutionism issues cannot be resolved with the information available to those who would want to know , or need to know , (not entirely accidental) because our species is not in the possession of the senses it requires to understand the reality of time , space , and everything.

Don't get me wrong, I believe in God. But let me ask you a simple question. Which is greater example of God's true power, Creationism or Evolutionism? In Creationism God just says poof this is Earth these are the people and thats the way it is. In Evolutionism God would litterally have to create the Universe in such a manner that everything worked out from the big bang on to create life and human beings on Earth. I think that is a far more profound statement of God's true power. Creationism isn't giving God enough credit, IMO.
It's not so much a question of which is a better example of God's power, so much as it goes against the literal history of creation.
Other difficulties could come from the idea that evolution has no goal, ie: human beings are an 'accident,' for lack of a better word, no more or less likely than any other organism.
but again...to me it is merely a misunderstanding...progress...even evolutionary progress doesn't have to be as random or without directly designed purpose as evolutionsts would seem to believe, nor does it have to mean it wasn't divinely directed and conceived from...
Don't forget ID is only a theory, evolution is fact. Some people want/need to believe in something (theory), some will only accept 'proven' fact.
