By now you're thinking, tenacious has way too much time on his hands. Nope. I'm doin' this on my lunch break. Just click and paste. You can thank my friends for their infinite patience here in fishing these arguments out in the first place. And without further adieu, here the last thing creationists hate:

The Power and Majesty of God Almighty

...and his subtlety. They will only allow God the miniscule, infant universe described by the writers of Genesis (or Moses, if you prefer). They can't stand it that God has been working on this version of the universe for something like 14 billion years, and His workshop is so inconceivably huge that it seems silly to imagine the Earth and its dominant species to be the center of God's attention. They won't allow Him to work His miracles of life patiently, subtly, using the gradual, majestic power of evolution. My hypothesis is that creationists, having short attention spans themselves, just can't allow God three billion years of patience and attention to Earthly life. Instead, all they'll allow Him is one POOF! magic, all-in-one creation, barely 6,000 years ago.
