It seems that theists have moved on and accepted the fact of evolution and have also been beaten on the evolution within species only stupidity.

That's all old hat now and the latest "way out" for theists is the "intervention" argument.

It is unclear as to where or how such intervention took place and surprisingly enough, there is no evidence.

Are theists trying to buy more time until they can think of the next ridiculous justification for having an imaginary friend?

But their answer to abiogenesis or any other beginning hypothesis is MAGIC.
They always start with magic but won't ever admit it.

Well, they are still being left behind in the dust again.
Penn and Teller don't call themselves magicians, but illusionists.

Therefore, to be politically correct, theists will now have to use the word "ILLUSION".
And guess what that word is one step away from?

DELUSION.

Honestly, who cares? I think you are really describing a small part of the population and generalizing the entirety.

You could be right there, I think most religious believers could not give a toss and there are varying degrees of "religiousness".

I do care, though, that religious institutions have become so inground in societies that people become complacent about what damage they do to societal and cultural values.

Elitism, sexism, homophobia, and racism are hardly desirable traits to be promoting purely on the false claim that we are "owned" by an invisible master.
