Is it just me who finds the idea of a Creator using evolution by natural selection as a means of spreading life completely hideous...?

Evolution is blind, bloody and wasteful. The beauty is that it explains life WITHOUT invoking a Creator; it explains the illusion of design. Add a Creator looking on from the side-lines, like some blood-thirsty voyeur, and it becomes almost repulsive.

And as for his 'creatheist' business...

"It's not a belief system. It is based on what we know, not what we believe." (Dowd's quote from PZ's review)

Sounds like atheism, to me.
