Cosmological evolution
Can you explain what evolution has to do with cosmology?
At least a couple of members are objecting to the use of the terms "evolution" and/or "evolutionist" outside of biological considerations. I feel this objection is without merit.
Certainly, dragging cosmology into a biological evolution topic is wrong, but biology doesn't get exclusive use of the term evolution - "Cosmological evolution" is a valid subject, and those supporting the scientific perspective could be termed "cosmological evolutionists" or the shorter "evolutionist".
I'm sure there's a good existing topic about this question, but I couldn't track it down. If someone wishes to pursue the mater, they should propose a new topic.
