Creationists, Intelligent Design and Sudoku

Why can “Creationists” &/or “Intelligent Design” advocates ‘solve’ Sudoku Number Puzzles so quickly?

Sample game:
[ - ][ 6 ][ - ]l[ 1 ][ - ][ 4 ]l[ - ][ 5 ][ - ]
[ - ][ - ][ 8 ]l[ 3 ][ - ][ 5 ]l[ 6 ][ - ][ - ]
[ 2 ][ - ][ - ]l[ - ][ - ][ - ]l[ - ][ - ][ 1 ]
-------------+-------------+--------------
[ 8 ][ - ][ - ]l[ 4 ][ - ][ 7 ]l[ - ][ - ][ 6 ]
[ - ][ - ][ 6 ]l[ - ][ - ][ - ]l[ 3 ][ - ][ - ]
[ 7 ][ - ][ - ]l[ 9 ][ - ][ 1 ]l[ - ][ - ][ 4 ]
-------------+-------------+----------------
[ 5 ][ - ][ - ]l[ - ][ - ][ - ]l[ - ][ - ][ 2 ]
[ - ][ - ][ 7 ]l[ 2 ][ - ][ 6 ]l[ 9 ][ - ][ - ]
[ - ][ 4 ][ - ]l[ 5 ][ - ][ 8 ]l[ - ][ 7 ][ - ]


Thinkers Solution: Concentrate turn on the brain and think about it. It's just logic after all. You can check your answer here:
(http://www.sudoku.com/)... just move your curser over the puzzle and the numbers appear.

However why should we turn on our brain and think? Just use a creationists approach and life is much simpler…

Creationist’s solution:
[ G ][ 6 ][ G ]l[ 1 ][ G ][ 4 ]l[ G ][ 5 ][ G ]
[ G ][ G ][ 8 ]l[ 3 ][ G ][ 5 ]l[ 6 ][ G ][ G ]
[ 2 ][ G ][ G ]l[ G ][ G ][ G ]l[ G ][G ][ 1 ]
----------------+---------------+-------------
[ 8 ][ G ][ G ]l[ 4 ][ G ][ 7 ]l[ G ][ G ][ 6 ]
[ G ][ G ][ 6 ]l[ G ][ G ][ G ]l[ 3 ][ G ][ G ]
[ 7 ][ G ][ G ]l[ 9 ][ G ][ 1 ]l[ G ][ G ][ 4 ]
----------------+--------------+--------------
[ 5 ][ G ][ G ]l[ G ][ G ][ G ]l[ G ][ G ][ 2 ]
[ G ][ G ][ 7 ]l[ 2 ][ G ][ 6 ]l[ 9 ][ G ][ G ]
[ G ][ 4 ][ G ]l[ 5 ][ G ][ 8 ]l[ G ][ 7 ][ G ]

THEY JUST PUT A “G” IN ALL THE EMPTY SQUARES; it’s just a matter of faith you know! It’s the same method 'Design so called Scientists' resort to in trying to prove their unsustainable “intelligent design theory”. They just assume all gaps in current understanding and/or knowledge regarding evolution must be filled with a (G=god) solution. Saves them having to think and question I suppose; blind faith, a refuge for the feeble-minded!

If you are thinking “Christian” when we mention creationists here is a little information…

“Islamic creationists are more likely to be day-age, Old Earth creationists; accepting Genesis only as a corrupted version of the original message of God to the Hebrews. The Qur'an account is relatively vague, even as to the number of days of creation: while most have the conventional six, one ambiguous passage adds up to eight. Also, in various verses the "days of God" are taken to be a thousand (Al-Hajj 47, As-Sajdah 5) or even fifty thousand (Al-Ma`arij 4) years in length, though these are in different contexts than creation. [Huh!!!?] So forcing the text into a day-age interpretation is somewhat easier for the Islamic case. They also don't have to worry as much about the stated order of creation in the Genesis story, as little is said about this matter in the Qur'an.

Contemporary Islam in general has a greater tendency towards literalism than Christianity regarding its sacred texts. The Qur'an is taken by almost all Muslims, conservative and liberal, as being the direct and unaltered word of their God. The historical conditions being such that many Muslims feel culturally threatened by a powerful and intrusive West that is more technologically advanced, there may be less of an opportunity at the present to develop analogues to non literal modernist theologies. Since science is indispensable in order to emerge from backwardness relative to the cultural competitor and religious identity is nonnegotiable to large degree, creationism can be an attractive compromise. Science must validate, not threaten, the revealed truth.”

Islam, is it how the media portrays it? Is it really all about terrorism and extremism? What do the Muslims believe? What is the Islamic concept of God? What does the Qur'an say about Jesus Christ and what do Muslims believe about Jesus Christ? Ever wondered?
