Why I am not a Darwinist.

Darwinist is a term mainly used by creationists in an attempt to paint acceptance of the Theory of Evolution (ToE) (all of science, in fact) as a religion, with Darwin as ToE's messiah, and The Origin of Species as its Bible.

Unfortunately, creationists can't accept that it isn't true.

They can't bring their nonsense up to science's level, so they try to drag science down to theirs.

Also, any term to collectively describe people who accept ToE will quickly be perverted the same way. "Evolutionist" has been.

Anyway, do not refer to me as a Darwinist (or an Evolutionist). I will vehemently deny the association. I do not worship Darwin.

Obvious retaliation after being called a Darwinist/Evolutionist/etc:
What about gravity? Do you have any problems with Newton's Laws of Gravity. No? Then you must be a Newtonist! (Or pick any well-accepted discipline that the Creationists generally don't complain about and its best-known figure)

What about a Simpsonist, a Buffy-ist, Firefly-ist or a Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy-ist?
