Hitchings - My source describes Hitching's book as creationist:

  • Talk origin - "Hitching's book spends much of its time attacking Darwinian evolution, borrowing heavily and uncritically from young-earth creationist arguments."
  • Answers in Genesis - doesn't like Hitching's rejection of scripture, but applauds his anti-Darwinism. VOXHUMANA 11:50, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Francis Hitching is not a creationist (I have his book), he rejects the Darwinian theory of evolution you are correct, but not the fact of evolution. Perhaps you should look at Non-Darwinian evolution. I am not saying Hitching's views are mainstream. Dawkins and Gould criticised his book, but it would be wrong to classify him as a creationist.

I'll agree he is not a creationist in the typical sense of the word. I've modified it to read "Anti-Darwinist" - does that work for you? VOXHUMANA 21:48, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes no worries mate, that is fine. I was going to spend some more time on rationalwiki debunking creationists but I am too busy and have retired from this site. The article you have created here is a good one. Forests (talk) 00:32, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
Meh, I come, I go, I come back. It all depends on what's going on in my real life. Good luck and take care regardless. VOXHUMANA 02:03, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
