Why do we invoke God for anything then? Why not embrace materialism and consider sin a figment of the human mind with no basis on reality?

Faith?

I am not sure what you are trying to say here. Scientifically detecting
common descent does not rule out God, nor does a transition from animal
to human man need to involve a supernatural process.
The problem is that ID creationists propose that such interactions of
God can be scientifically detected.
