"evangelists" is probably the wrong term. did you mean "creationists?"

and according to the sporecast, the game leans farther towards creationism than evolution. in fact, it has little to no evolution.

I did mean creationists.
I haven't played Spore because of the DRM, but I watched Brad's review and after you create the character (creationism) doesn't it evolve over time?

It's not really evolving, because you can completely redo your creature at no cost. And you aren't required to make small, evolutionary changes to the creature. Example: You can just randomly give him an arm.

Yeah and you control all mutations, they are not random mutations that lead to evolution through selective pressure.

I think it's a video game.

So is Grand Theft Auto. Look at the controversies surrounding it. It's still a video game.

I'm sure people of all religions and subsects of those religions play Spore.

What controversy? Only an idiot would create a controversy over a game like this.
And you can't really ask "Do Evangelists play this?", I'm sure a lot do and see no problem with it like a regular human being. Don't make stupid generalizations.
