Continuing the discussion from Gauger: Alternate Reading Frames Unlike Human Design:
There are two things that I notice about creationists (of the YEC or ID variety):
They frequently rail against materialism and mechanism;
Their own arguments often seem very materialistic and mechanistic.
That’s a good example. The idea of “a fixed creation event in the past” seems materialistic and mechanistic. I always understood that God was supposed to be outside of time and space. God was supposed to be omnipresent – present at all times and at all spatial locations.
For that matter, the YEC reading of Genesis 1 seems very materialistic and mechanistic. For that matter, it is hard to see how you could have a literalistic reading of Genesis 1 without it being materialistic.
It looks to me as if the YEC God and the ID proponent’s God is a materialist.
