I reject every form of creationism[1] and believe in evolution.[2]
I see no difference between someone who believes in the Flying Spaghetti Monster[3] and someone who believes in God[4] as there both scientifically impossible. I would also like to see some form of evidence that your non-existant god might exist, oh wait there is none!

Even if you accept evolution there is still plausibility to creationism. The creation of the universe, the creation of life, current human significance, all of these steps toward what we understand to be how we got to this now, can be the makings of a higher power. Evolution does not have a definitive answer for the steps of the growth of apes to modern humans, how life began on Earth in the first place, or the creation of the universe. What we do know is literally nothing, so if we intend on being open minded individuals, we should at least stay open to the subject of God, or gods, or at least some sort of higher power, before barging in and immediately crying foul. If you look at the vastness of the universe, how perfect the conditions of earth are for supporting life, or that there are no intermediate forms of evidence of humans from apes to modern day man, it is in fact very enticing to believe that there was some form of divine intervention along the way. Also a higher form of life is absolutely scientifically possible. If you believe in evolution, you can probably believe in aliens, probability and all, so is it far fetched to believe of a significantly more advanced life form out there that could have intervened with human life. Maybe on a higher plane of existence? Higher Dimensional beings even? Quantum Science has evidence that we may even have created this reality, or that all options may have been exhausted reaching this point in time across infinite dimensions . I think it is best to keep an open mind about things I do not understand.

The whole definition of Creationism by biblical standards is that a deity had constructed life in one form or designed without the process of natural selection and/or evolutionary change.

Understanding that evolution is a fact which also means that natural selection is happened, there was no need for an intelligence behind this process. The theory of evolution is a collection of facts which describes the process of how simple life can change over time into more complex life.

If one would say Creationism is a evolution with a guided process, one can present the fact that life as we are would be very unintelligent, for example giraffes have a long nerve that runs down the neck, wraps around a main artery then follows back up the neck in order to make a simple connection only an inch away from where it started for no reason at all. If you were to get a creationist to answer why this was so, this creationist would argue that it's just how god did it, however a evolutionist would be able to answer this question perfectly with evidence on why this nerve travels down the neck for no reason.
