I wouldn't characterize evolution as one single theory. In addition to
biological evolution and cosmological evolution we have evolution of
language, evolution of knowledge, and many others, but each of these has a
theory that was developed mostly independently of the others, and it is
difficult to find major features that all of them have in common beyond
that they involve evolution.

YECs want to classify everything that they object to in science, even the
Big Bang, as being due to evolutionists and seem to imply that Darwin is
responsible for all of them, but actually the only evolution we can
attribute directly to Darwin is biological.
