Old-earth intelligent design supporters? The proof’s on them

Some intelligent designers are claiming that ID is not about a young earth, etc. and should not be the baby thrown out with the bathwater.

Yet these same groups talk about “creation vs. evolution,” etc.
Well, you can’t have your cake and eat it, too, claiming not to be anti-science and then showing yourself to be not so prescience after all.

Besides, if pro-science intelligent design proponents do exist, it is incumbent upon them, to show how they differ from run-of-the-mill ID hawkers. It’s not incumbent on mainstream scientists to go mining for a gram of placer gold in tons of rubble.
