This is a very specific, thorough description of different creationist terms, but there are several major problems with it. First, it defines creationism as "the belief that the universe was brought into being by a divine act of God." This is an asinine definition, because it includes people like me who actually DO believe in evolution, but controlled and guided by God. While the article does, to be fair, say that "most Jews, Christians, and Muslims" fit into this category by ITS definition, the fact that people who believe in evolution are NOT considered creationists by ANYONE means that this article's author SERIOUSLY needs to rethink his or her definition of "creationism."
