What do Humanists think of top scientists who believe in God and who are even creationists? Would you consider them incapable of critical thinking?

What do Humanists think of top scientists who believe in God and who are even creationists?I personally think that they got some things right... and something else wrong. Which happens to all of us. There are many scientists who compartmentalize their religious faith away from the work that they do as scientists. As long as their non-evidential faith does not bleed over into other areas of their research, they do just fine, I'm sure.
