Misconceptions exist on both sides. I didn't really read the OP but, while being a Christian myself, I understand that many Christians do indeed reject certain aspects of science because they believe they contradict the Bible.
However, the reason for this isn't really their own ignorance as much as it is the vagueness of the science revolving around evolution. Many people (on both sides) believe in many different kinds of science that conflict with ID that actually don't.
The only aspect of evolution that conflicts with the Bible is the macro-evolution aspect of it; the 'speciation' that apparently happens. Virtually all other aspects of it are scientifically sound and don't contradict creationism. But it is the misinterpretations and misrepresentation of information that causes confusion on both sides.
The only misconceptions are on the part of the people who deny the science of evolution in favor of some other idea with no concrete evidence supporting it at all. The same science that supports evolutionary theory supports all the other scientific theories that are somehow okay with creationist folks.
There is nothing "vague" about the science that supports evolution. Evolution is one of the most well-supported ideas that science has ever come up with. The entire field of genetics, the everyday use of DNA in forensic investigations and the need for new flu vaccines each season are all concrete evidence in support of evolution. People who say they "don't believe that evolution is true" need to stop saying blue eyes or musical talent runs in their family, because that is a statement of lay support of the theory of evolution. They also need to show why every single field of science since Darwin has only added to the theory.
If the theory of evolution is wrong, that means that millions of people have been producing nothing but made-up fake data in universities, private labs, hospitals and research facilities all over the world for the past 150 years. And hundreds of journal articles and scientific organizations have been actively covering up all the faked data.
We are not just talking biology here. We have to indict public health, chemistry, agriculture, physical anthropology, biogeography, geology and paleontology. All textbooks had to have been written by liars and are full of faked data. China, Israel, Russia, Germany, South Africa, Ethiopia, England, Brazil and the US are all in on this massive scam.
And DNA matches at crime scenes are just coincidentally linked to the right person. And public health scientists are just wasting time and money creating new flu vaccines when they could just keep on using the ones from years past. And the thousands of fossil remains of different types of plants, reptiles, fish, birds and yes, different hominids, were placed in the ground in the right order by Satan to test our faith.
Or maybe evolution is true.
Which is more likely?
