Not lazy and stupid so much as simply following their emotions. It just feels better to believe that there's Someone In Charge Out There.
I doubt that most folks spend a lot of time thinking about ID per se. Likewise, they probably don't spend a lot of time concerning themselves with theological issues. "Christian" is just a default position, at least in America it seems. It's the path of least resistance.
Given the choice between living in an unpurposed universe, vast and absolutely indifferent. and living in a special world made just for human beings, watched over by Someone Who Has a Special Plan For Your Life, I wager that choice number two will come out way ahead every time.
