Definition of Creationist

When I use the term "creationist" I mean people to which any of the following websites apply:

http://drdino.com/

http://emporium.turnpike.net/C/cs/

http://www.icr.org/

http://www.creationresearch.org/

http://www.creationscience.com/onlinebook/

http://www.talkorigins.org/

http://www.answersingenesis.org/

that is just the tip of the iceberg.

signs of a creationist(besides the obvious):

personal attacks

ignoring evidence

using flat out lies as evidence

using the bible as evidence(bible isn't even a resource in english papers)

using a lack of evidence as evidence

strawman

flame

troll

give the "i'm brainwashed" vibe

have no clue what the big bang or evolution actually say(and in many cases can't tell the difference)

spam

all of this brings up one of my favourite quotes of late:

Huh? Creationists are a sociological phenomenon, not a religious one. They may derive their beliefs from religion (though note there are creationsists from all the major religions, so it's not just a sectarian phenomenon), but they at least pretend to be objective and "scientific". ID proponents even get indignant when religious ideas are ascribed to them.

SA, some of the links provided are religious based.
