creationism is different: it follows the bible, using science you like as a bulwark, avoiding science that gets in the way.
Avoiding science that gets in the way of one's beliefs... Haven't we had enough of that in the last several thousand years?
We used to believe the earth was the center of the cosmos. Galileo's belief otherwise got him branded a heretic and placed under house arrest. But it's okay - Catholics were just ignoring that bit of science that clashed with their beliefs. Copernicus? Attacked by the church for the same reason. Remember Martin Luther's dismissal of Copernicus's notion of an earth that revolved around the sun: "I believe the Holy Scriptures, for Joshua commanded the sun to stand still and not the earth." Uh huh.
Earth's flat - until it's not.
The blood of non-causcasians is inferior - until it's not.
People with seizures are possessed by the devil - until they're not.
The Great Flood must have killed all the dinosaurs - except it didn't.
Left-handedness was seen to reflect unfavorably with regards to one's standing with God (Matthew 25: 32–33), and thus needed to be "corrected" when seen in children.
Being red-headed was a sign of moral degeneration in the medieval world.
And on and on.
But sure - let's embrace the science that doesn't contradict our belief system, and discard the rest. Ask the 172 children who died from 1975 to 1995 because medical care was withheld by their parents on religious grounds how that worked for them.

Because bacterial pneumonia is best treated by thinking of it as a devil that needs to be exorcised.
