I believe that Creation - that is, nature - is not deceptive. Anything which Creation clearly and unambiguously shows, must be Truth. Whenever Revealed Truth is in conflict with Creation itself, humans must somehow have mistranslated, or misinterpreted.
So, for me, the debate, the issue, is what (if anything) is clearly and unambiguously shown by Creation. The problem is not simple. The craters on the moon may be writ large, but they are not written in English.
