1) If you already believe something to be true, then you search for evidence to back it up you are embracing a strong bias. Science, or critical thinking, is designed to eliminate as much bias as possible. However, scientists do seek evidence to support their hypothesis, which is similar to what you describe here. But there is a powerful difference. When a hypothesis is presented to a crowd of peers and those peers do not find the evidence compelling it is rejected. A good scientist then modifies the idea or abandons it. They do not cling to it out of faith. Faith is what you have when you lack a reason. It hangs on nothing but a feeling.
2) If you accept science (particles and junk) then why tack on the added complication of a Designer? Back in Joseph Smith's day he would not have had any idea about particles. No mention of them in the BoM. No mention of quantum physics. Then along comes science and discovers these properties of the universe. Suddenly God takes on the role of being behind those properties. In fact, each time we discover some deeper fact about how the universe works you have to move God one step backward in the process. In Smith's day it would have been acceptable for an educated man to say that God keeps the planets moving and has a hand in every day life. Today we know so much more about that stuff that it makes no sense to say that. God has been pushed back to an even more remote position, always occupying that space of knowledge where humans have not yet penetrated.
The term for that is God of the Gaps. You put God into the unknown spaces. Those areas of the map that say "here be monsters".
You have brought up some interesting points,great debate.

I never said evidence wasn't important. I said there will never be proof, and that the plan was for us to have to rely on faith. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy searching for evidences of the things I believe. It's cool for me to run across something that affirms my faith.
Just because I believe in a creator, a higher power that had a hand in the intricate details of how particles work together, to the amazing human body, to the wonders if the universe, doesn't mean it's magic. It's just admitting that we aren't the smartest creatures in existence.
But yet, what other species can read, process and rationalize opinion.

On this planet anyway.

Things that can make people go hmmm...to have such innate ability and then for so many to STILL opt to act like much lower level of intelligence, near brainless animals, with out any modicom of ethical excuse.....why even Science warns Against the ignorance of such!

Other apes, and some chimps. Try this "thought experiment," come up with one trait humans have which no other animal has, dare you to.

Oh, and it has to be a real one, "soul" is not supported by evidence, nor is "spirit."

Couldn't you've have just referenced quantumn PHYSICS. Theoretically, it does classify in it's own realms, rather than that of the continual evolutionary process based upon stuff that was already there (the key words being already there)...

I've seen a lot of good, accurate info on SOME of dem dare uh "creationist" sites. Current even! Where you specifically referring to general creationists, young earth creationist, traditional creationists, Methodology creationists (uhoh LOL) or elsewise.
They're all idiots. They all start with a proposition (god created everything) and then try to find data to support it. Which leads to cherry picking, fabrication, and ignoring contradictory data. It's the exact opposite of the scientific method.
I had a hard time making sense of the rest of your post. Either I haven't had enough coffee yet, or you haven't had enough meds yet. Not sure which...
