List of questions:

What is the textbook definition of biological evolution?

Does evolution include cosmology and abiogenesis?

Let's see if any of them can do it.

It is both depressing and hysterical that creationists here have failed to answer these simple questions that a high schooler in biology could answer without thinking.

Biological evolution is the process by which the genetic structure of populations changes over time.

No, evolution does not include either of these.

I would assume that creationists insist on linking them together because creation does include these aspects, and we know that other realms of science suggest differently.

So the term for all of them together would just be generally science then, right?

I didn't want to answer this post because I knew that you were only trying to be sarcastic and cynical.

Not quite.

Biological evolution is the change in allele frequencies over time. That is not structure.

No, evolution does not include either of these.

Or the are deliberately dishonest.

Possibly. It is generally a bad idea to lump entire things together and gloss over their differences.

See actual definition of evolution.

Why most you be so hateful of christianity I know you don't agree with it but does that really give you a right to be like that?

If evolution is correct then our minds are the result of random chemical reactions then how can we trust them?

Since when did a literal interpretation of Genesis = Christanity?

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  This DOES NOT MEAN that opinions are all right. Many opinions are Wrong.  You can have the opinion that 10+10=4 but unless you are using a Base-2 number system, it is simply WRONG.  So no, i don't hate christianity, i simply hate ignorance.  Ignorance  and widespread information control(inquisition, much?) is what causes horrible things like mass genocide and Christianity is not helping spread knowledge and advance technology, even when it could save lives.
