It seems to me that any creationist who dismisses evolution must hold one of the following two positions:

1) A relatively small group of predominantly right-wing christians, most with no scientific training or education, led by people like Kent Hovind and Duane Gish, know more about biology, genetics, and many other sciences that contribute to evolutionary theory, than do the world's scientists, people who have studied these sciences all their professional lives, or

2) Evolutionary theory is a lie to which the world's scientists knowingly describe in an an effort to supplant/diminish belief in God.

Either of these two positions strikes me as absurd, yet I cannot see how someone who dismisses evolutionary theory cannot hold one or the other.

Am I missing something? Or am I correct, and one of the above two positions ARE held by the majority of creationists? If so, which is the most held belief?
