Contrary to common perception the majority of Christians may be creationists, but not of the YEC or ID variety!!
This seriously underplays the state of research. You should read Koonin closely on this. The reason he has developed the argument he has is not because of ignorance, but he is responding to the force of evidence. He is also pursuing an "inference to the best explanation" approach although sees the evidence differently to Meyer. Regarding throwing up one's hands in the air and resorting to a "God did it" proclamation - see my previous comment.
Also, ID is not being deceitful about God – it is respecting the limitations of science.
Although I do accept supernatural miracles, I see these as specific extra interventions for theological reasons, rather than as tinkerings with the mechanics of how the universe works.
There is the great danger that creationists (IDor YEC) multiply miracles in an ad hoc way to avoid the implications of normal science.
