Science is at its essence simply a natural theology.
I have never been able to find that kind of essence in science.

It just seems to me that if our science is correct then it should have something to tell us about a creator should one exist.
There are probably many people who agree with that. But it is a personal conclusion, and not a required part of science. So I think "essence" was the wrong term for you to use.

Of course science could point towards a non-material explanation, if we only looked at the evidence.
Science did go with the lumeniferous ether for a long time. And that turned out to be so immaterial, that it doesn't even exist.

You know there is a school of thought that says that the testing of any supernatural phenomenon can only work if the participants believe it can work
This is known as the placebo effect, and has been much studied.

Re: How evolutionists think...
No, its not the placebo effect. We are talking about the volunteers administering the tests, like the one's turning over cards, or sending out the mental image.
Then perhaps you are talking about wholesale cheating.
