If you look at contemporary Evolution, this theory begins at replicators, which are self replicating molecules. Although evolution begins here, other areas of science assume that the beginning of life began long before this through a process called Abiogenesis, where simple molecules become increasingly complex, finally leading to replicators. The net effect is Evolution begins it timeline somewhere in the middle of a longer science based history; between simple molecules and the present. If you parallel this to Genesis in the Bible, Adam is assumed to be starting point for humans. Science has also shown that life and the precursors of humans began much further back into time. Creationism also begins its timeline in the middle of a longer history. In both cases, once their Adam/replicator appears, they both do a good job correlating the timeline, from time-0, to the present, based on what they know/understood. But in both cases, neither take into account events from history before their time=0, as influencing the flow of their theory. Is evolution a knock off of creationism; pseudo-creationism schema?
