This is obscurantism personified

I think that's how religions work in general. I think a lot of people learn that when someone dresses their writing up with sophistry or ambiguous waffle, they really have not got anything to say. Theology in a nut-shell.

It is telling that you can explain the basics of a scientific theory (such as evolution) in a sentence or two. You can get the point across very quickly. To get any sort of religious point across it seems to take a mountain of obscure and rambling arguments. After the first paragraph I simply couldn't be bothered to read any more.
