There is no such thing as the "theory of creation". Creation is a religious
belief that is neither verifiable or rejectable. Creation is, therefore,
not an appropriate topic for a sci group. Evolution, on the other hand, has
for most of its existence, like creation, been hard to verify, but
evolution was always rejectable until we reached the point at which we had
enough evidence to consider it to be a general truth. And specific
evolutionary hypotheses are still rejectable.
