Unfortunately creationists do not comprehend creationism. Allow me to explain creationism.
1. Creator, chooses, spiritual, existence of which is a matter of chosen opinion
2. Creation, chosen, material, existence of which is a matter of fact forced by evidence
All science would be in category number two. All subjectivity belongs in category number one. Creationism is the only philosophy which validates bot subjective opinion, and objective fact, each in their own right.
Choice is the mechanism of creation, how any material thing originates.
If I say “I find this painting beautiful”, then the word “beautiful” is chosen by spontaneous expression of emotion with free will. I could have chosen the word “ugly”, which would have been an equally logically valid opinion. The word “beautiful” refers to a love for the way the painting looks. Out of this love the word “beautiful” was chosen. The existence of this love is therefore a matter of chosen opinion, meaning it is equally logically valid to choose the opinion my love for the way the painting looks is not real, as to choose the opinion that it is real.
A subjective statement like about beauty, addresses human beings as being creators. As having free will and choosing. Emotions, like love, are motivation to choices, they make choices, and therefore they belong in category number one, the creator category.
Both God and the soul are defined in terms of that they make choices, which is why they belong in category number one, and therefore the rules of subjectivity apply to God and the soul. This is why the existence of God is a matter of faith, which faith is a form of chosen opinion.
A fact is obtained by evidence of a creation forcing to produce a 1 to 1 corresponding model of it. If I say the moon is a sphere, then those words provide a 1 to 1 corresponding picture of the moon. If I say the moon is a cube, then the picture does not correspond, and therefore the stated fact is inaccurate.
I guess many believers are led astray by not comprehending creationism. In the schoolbook for the Hitler Youth it talks about the spirit, and soul attributes of people. How nice, they recognize spirit and the soul, must be good people these nazi’s. But they acknowledged spirit and soul as matters of FACT of biology. Meaning nazi’s have a measuring calculating attititude in regards to the worth of people, the attitude that is appropiate for factual issues. How many creationists today would fall for the ruse of nazi’s acknowledging the spirit and soul? Too many.

Sadly, at 404 degrees. Bummer.
