Evolution ≠ Abiogenesis ≠ Cosmology
I am not sure if creationists are being aggressively stupid or merely rude when they repeatedly confuse the big bang, abiogenesis and evolution. They will say things like According to evolution, the universe just appeared out of nothing. How could that happen without Jehovah waving his magic wand to make it appear out of nothing. That’s laughable. Or According to Darwin, a rock just turned into a fish one day, without god even waving his magic wand to make it happen. That’s laughable.
Cosmology is concerned with the origin (the big bang) and early history of the universe; evolution is not.
Abiogenesis is concerned with how the first life form appeared of developed on earth; evolution is not.
Evolution is about how animals slowly change over the generations, gradually adapting better and better to their changing environment.
These are three quite different branches of science. Evolution is well-developed. The other two still have many mysteries to solve, such as dark energy and dark matter and whether life formed on earth or arrived from elsewhere on a bit of cosmic debris. Unsolved problems means unsolved problems, not a throwing up of hands and saying I give up! I don’t want to work on this problem any more. God did it.~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 67)

I certainly have no sympathy with child molesters, but I do have some great doubts about putting people in jail because of their taste in pictures.~ Tom Flanagan (born: 1944-03-05 age: 71) Persona Non Grata: The Death of Free Speech in the Internet Age
His remarks caused a firestorm. Those who opposed him wanted people who view child porn put in jail, not because of the effects on the child models, but because they found it disgusting. They made no distinction between molesting children and looking at lewd pictures, even drawings made without models. This is understandable, but still irrational.
