all "Just a theory" nonsense From Steve Geller, Internet: I get very annoyed at creationists when they try to portray evolution as "just a theory" -- as if it were some idle lunch-hour speculation. They are WRONG. Evolution draws together the fossil record, genetic similarities and what we can see about reproduction, descent and selection in historic times. The only speculation is the extrapolation of small -scale speciation to large-scale changes like mammals from therapsid reptiles. When the ICR or someone can come up with a clear demonstration that species appearance by divine fiat creation has EVER happened, then we can talk about creation being an "alternative" to evolution. As it stands, creation is idle speculation except to those for whom it is religious doctrine. We should keep in mind that ALL the "evidence" for creation comes entirely from a literal interpretation of Genesis. This clearly puts creation in the category of religious doctrine, not part of science.
