Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the alleged theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the alleged theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

Evolutionary "Logic": The theory of evolution is a Creation theory

If evolutionitwits insist on lumping ID with Creation then using the SAME logic, the theory of evolution is a Creation theory:

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."--Charles Darwin in "On the Origins of Species..." 6th edition, last sentence of the last chapter

However if we go by the commonly accepted definitions of "creationism", then it is clear that neither ID nor the ToE are Creation theories:

Consider some widely used and standard definitions of creationism: defines creationism as “Belief in the literal interpretation of the account of the creation of the universe and of all living things related in the Bible.”

Merriam-Webster defines it as “a doctrine or theory holding that matter, the various forms of life, and the world were created by God out of nothing and usually in the way described in Genesis."

The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as “Belief in the literal interpretation of the account of the creation of the universe and of all living things related in the Bible.”

Essentially the same definition even appears in the scientific, peer reviewed literature:

Creationists are those who believe that God created the universe, and all species alive today, in a geological instant several thousand years ago. The usual motive for creationism is conformity to a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesisor some analogous scripture. (Leigh EG Jr. 1999. The modern synthesis, Ronald Fisher and creationism. Trends Ecol Evol. 14:495-498.)

Futuyma’s Glossary:

The doctrine that each species (or perhaps higher taxon) of organism was created separately in much its present form, by a supernatural creator.

But if you are a twisted and demented evolutionitwit, whose ONLY defense of the ToE is to disparage any & all alternatives no matter what, then you will continue to think that ID = Creation. And you won't even realize that you have also painted yourself into the SAME corner. Ignorance is bliss.
