You want to know my criticism of creationism ?
You think historical evolution is a scientific fact? You can prove it?
My point exactly. But, for our purposes TToE=The Theory of Gravity. TToG=The Theory of Gravity.

1) There is no such thing as a "scientific fact." That is a concept invented by lay people so they can feel good about what they think they know.
2) You see Evolution in action every day. You and your siblings look like your parents, but a little different. Viruses and bacteria create resistance to antibiotics and other treatments. Flies from a common source cannot breed with the "source" species after a short time living in subways.
3) The fossil record is pretty comprehensive. Unless and until there is alternative SCIENTIFIC explanation for the tens of billions of fossils then there is no alternative to TToE.
