The difference between this kind of critical examination of GR and the "critical examination" of darwinism that you are suggesting is that this puts forth testable predictions that might better explain the mechanisms behind natural phenomena, while ID is merely a negative response to darwinism and doesn't replace it with a more useful explanation for biodiversity. These Chinese guys are indeed critically examining GR, but ID is only criticizing darwinism and not at all constructively.

Even if I grant your characterization of the situation, saying "Look, it doesn't work" without an alternative is better than pretending everything is just fine.

You can set up any number of comparisons between ID and darwinism that make your position look good . . . it still won't make darwinism correct.
