Obviously, the latter. But the term "Evolutionist" suggests a philosophy or ideology that is based on Evolution science.<quoted text>So do you consider evolutionists those scientists and thinkers that accept the theory and/or work in the field? Or do you consider that group more broadly to include all those that use or misuse the information taken from the field? It sounds like the latter. Being that inclusive, as the driver of a car, I can be considered an automotive manufacturer.
From WordWeb: evolutionist: a person who believes in organic evolution.
I'm not sure what term that scientists use to describe themselves, but I'm sure it has SOME Greek or Latin in it to make is sound special! Either way, I'm interested in the facts. The conclusions are not absolute.
