Just heard Denis Lamoureux, whose take on TE I like. He notes that the
noun is the most important element in a label, so TE puts the emphasis on
evolution rather than on the Creator and Sustainer. He prefers
evolutionary creationism. In a different context, I have suggested
"creation by secondary causes" as applying to all but the original
/creatio ex nihilo/, which produced the basis for secondary causation.

I have made the same point as well. But I also have a problem with "evolutionary creationism" because it mixes a scientific term and a theological term. So I'm still looking for a label...
