I actually said that "Science is not out to prove/disprove god", meaning that Science isn't a conscious entity with a specific objective. Some creationists I have debated with, and seen others debate, seem to dismiss Science, I do not know why, but probably because they perceive it as an enemy to their belief. I would never suggest that all creationists deny Science. I should have been more specific, but that was me trying to understand the reasoning behind such statements as "Well, you can't prove that god doesn't exist." Just because God may, or may not exist does not mean the chance is 50/50. It doesn't automatically mean that it is rational for one to believe in God. I think you could be right on this point, a lot of the debating I have participated in has been online, so the creationists involved could be twelve years old, for all I know. I haven't debated many religious creationists in "real life", but I have had a fair few debates with spiritualists. They tend to make similar statements, and present similar arguments. "You can't prove that inanimate objects aren't conscious", for instance. True, I usually only engage when they attack Science, and/or atheists directly.
