THere are a growing number of us that are scientists and creationists. They are not mutually exclusive positions.
This is correct, however creation itself is not science, and I have not observed any actual opposition to the theory of evolution that is scientifically valid. I have observed that the majority of scientists who reject the theory of evolution are not biologists. As the theory of evolution is a subject of biology, the existence of non-biologist scientsts who reject the theory of evolution demonstrates neither that evolution is not valid science nor that creotionism is valid science.

I am a biologist. I have seen these arguements before. You cannot scientifically refute evolution unless you are a biologist, and you are not a biologist (or an acceptable one) unless you are an evolutionist. THis is circular reasoning.
Also, scientific areas are rarely isolated. The physicist, cosmologist, etc have as much to say about evolution as the biologist, just like biology adds to the knowledge in fields.
