Explaining the Use Evolutionist by Creationists


Creationists will often use the term Evolution to refer to entire naturalistic view of origins starting with the Big Bang and going to Man. Creationists will also use the term Evolutionist to refer to those who believe the Big Bang to Man naturalistic view of origins.


The Creationist usage of the terms Evolution and Evolutionist has recently come under attack by opponents of creation Science. The claim is that evolution only refers to biological evolution which only goes from a first cell to man. It is further claimed that Creationists are ether ignorant or misrepresenting the term Evolution. It goes on to claim that abiogenesis, planetary formation, stellar formation and the Big Bang are all independent disciplines unrelated to evolution.

Creationists fully understand that these are different disciplines and we do no misrepresent the term Evolution because it is wrong to claim that they are unrelated to biological evolution since together they form one complete view of origins. In fact they are all referred to as evolution by main stream sources like NASA and the NSF. They use distinguishing terms like biological evolution, chemical evolution, planetary evolution, stellar evolution cosmic evolution.


Biological evolution refers to the development of life. Chemical evolution refers to the origin of life. Planetary evolution refers to formation and development of planetary bodies. Stellar evolution refers to the formation, development and death of stars. Cosmic evolution refers to the beginning, development and possible end of the universe. Some times this by itself refers the entire Big Bang to man concept.

Note that these are all labeled evolution so it is not inappropriate to refer to them all collectively as Evolution its proponents as Evolutionists. The terms Evolution and Evolutionists are often used by Creationists simply do to a lack of better terms.

I have also used the terms General Evolution and General Evolution theory to help avoid confusion.
