There Is No Such Thing As "Darwinism"

Is there "Einsteinism", "Newtonism", "Copernucusism" or "Euclidism"? I think not. Evolutionary biologists would greet the term "Darwinism" with a blank stare, as rightly they should. The correct term is "Biology", of which evolution of species is a core principal.

I think I have complained before about the distortion of language for political ends, and "Darwinism" ranks right up there with the "Clean Coal" invention, except this time it's meant as a slam. If you find yourself in a discussion, and either the term "Democrat Party" or "Darwinism" is floated, the interjector is a professional ass, and you have my permission to be rude.
