If there was actual evidence that we were the product of intelligent design
In all of their searching and "scientific" endeavors, if fundies were to come across actual evidence...then I don't think they would accept it. It would ruin the "MAGIC". I'd like everyone's thoughts on this please.

How would they recognize it?

It isn't as if they have prior experience with scientific evidence.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Actually, they have spent billions to desperately fund scientists and pay off others to get on board with them to come up with evidence for their claims. Not all of them are completely anti science, many substitute it for pseudoscience to try and provide evidence for their claims.

Wouldn't that really depend on the nature of the evidence? Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

What happens when their pseudoscience is given an explanation ?

I think they tend to keep pushing the pseudoscience and than disregard everything else as false.

The prime example of this is Ken Ham's Creation museum. There is Science which is "mans word" vs "God's Word" the bible.

The bible "teaches" us that the world is only something like 4000 years old. Therefor that is the truth. They pay a Christian scientist to think up or come up with something that resembles science and present it as a fact. Using the appeal to authority fallacy, we can now see that they have a scientific authority to relate to their evidence giving it "validity?" ....is that the right word? Give credit or proof or weight to it?

Therefor, because all these other scientists say X is wrong because of reasons, they just have to fall back on the, oh well, that is just mans word and not gods word therefor it is wrong and we are right argument.

It basically goes like that.

True. If it were "Magical" evidence then we're screwed. The fundies would attribute it to "SOMETHING UNEXPLAINABLE"...which, of course, must be God. Case closed, without further study.

RE: If there was actual evidence that we were the product of intelligent design
Even if we were presented with "magical" evidence. Evidence that is extraordinary and cannot be explained by science.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke

We would just chalk it up to, let's keep analyzing it until we figure it out. Even if it takes until the end of the universe and beyond we would keep at it until the end of time until science explains this high level of tech.....I mean magic.
