That is a good idea; teaching refutations to ID arguments would be more effective than ingoring the topic. Too bad I didn't think of that.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

there might be some difference between darwinism and the theory of evolution
darwinism is what he believed but evolution is what we now understand from what he discovered :roll: but I dont really know
for me this is just a battle of terms

we had known that it is not only darwin who took this subject(the theory) seriously
People might have thought that he tried to deviate himself from God or his theory was some sort of different from that of the "real" evolution

Feel free to delete the excess if you like. I won't be offended.

Back to the main topic, Evolution is what we understand of the theory now and Darwinism is the incorrect term that is mistakenly used, or at least that is what I believe the other posts are trying to get at.

I agree; the mis-identification of evolution has more to do with malevolence than ignorance.
