10. As I understand it, they accept microevolution
They just don't accept macroevolution: like birds evolving from dinosaurs and such. Macroevolution is more complex and a bit more of a leap of faith. There are many unanswered questions because we don't have all the answers in the past. The Creationists use these unanswered questions as openings in believing that evolution is false.
