Bzzzt. Evolutionism has no moral relevance at all. You're thinking of
Social Darwinism, which has been rejected for nearly as long as
creationism amongst scientists.

Evolution is the study of the origins of biological species and their
structure and behavior.

Has anybody tested the hypothesis that creationists have substantially
lower than average IQ? Or are they just normal folks who have unusual
abilities when it comes to disconnecting beliefs from critical analysis?
