Natural theology that integrates attacks on conventional scientific views appeals to pride and snobbery: "I know more about science than all those Ph.D.'s"
The perception of the overall authority and objectivity of science also contributes to the desire to claim scientific support for your views. This is true of both theistic and atheistic views, and represents a specific variety of evidentialism and foundationalism.
