It depends on how you define creationist. If a creationist is one who
believes in a creator, then Denton is a creationist. He said:

"I tend to think that the evidence suggests a transcendant, Hebraic God,
of the judeo Christian tradition. An external creator made the world
and gave it its order, its pattern, and its end. And it's consistent I
think, with the evidence though. It's consistent with it." Michael
Denton, Biological Evidence of Creation "From a Frog to a Prince" Video
Tape, Keziah Productions, 1998.

Denton is a creationist.

Now, do you have a reference and a quote for where he says he isn't a
creationist? If you do, then Denton is trying to have it both ways. And
I would like to have that in my database.
