If Creationist truly have a credible argument, why do they always lie?

True you didnt ask me but since you responded anyway i will sure try to answer.
I would not say that "creationists always lie".
I would say that any argument I have ever seen put forward by a creationist against evolution has not been a misrepresentation, a half truth, a misleading statement, an outright falsehood (intentional or otherwise), an expression of ignorance, etc.
The way a person falsifies a scientific theory is with reliable data.
So far, no creationist (probably such would be among the least likely to do so) has ever come up with data point one that would in any way falsify the ToE.
In the absence of data, like say the famously missing cambrian bunny, the creationists have nothing real to say. Not real is not the same as lying, but it sure not the same as true and valid.
Do you think that "goddidit" isnt the cretionist explanation for everything?
Ok, still waiting to see if Non-excluvistic stands by his statement that creationists always lie, or was he lying when he said that.
No, actually I do believe that "godidit" is the proper explanation for everything. Although I'd write it as "God did it." But I get your meaning.
"I believe in Christianity, as I believe the sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." C.S. Lewis
"Don't believe that there's nothing that's true, don't believe in this modern machine." Switchfoot
Why be religiously bias and hateful? We should learn to be more patient and loving to one another; patience and love are my Jihads (struggles).

They lie a lot. LOTS! I would bet on always, whether they are misrepresenting, being intellectually dishonest or bold face lying. Always fudging facts. Jew, Christian, Muslim and any other creationist believing group. The fundamentalist mindset makes way for irrationality which leads to lying to defend the belief they hold, even when it's plainly false. I'd have to see one not lie to change my mind. http://www.theologyonline.com/forums...3&postcount=81
