The Earth owes its existence to the process of accretion, where all planets are created through the coalescing of nebular debris around a star. A planet takes a few tens of millions of years to form. Earth took roughly 60 million years to form following the Sun's creation.
We're not certain as to what led to the existence of the universe. A compelling argument is quantum fluctuations; that is, the random spawning of virtual particles into existence. Physicists have made it clear that there is no such thing as "nothing." And so these fluctuations are suggested to have existed before the Big Bang, and ultimately led to the build up of an energy-filled singularity, which led to the "bang."
Depends on which evolutionists you ask. But many follow the Big Bang Theory. Here is some info on that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang From that point forward, they think things evolved and changed til they became how we know them today...from people to animals and plants.
Well, there is the Big Bang theory. I personally believe in a creator, but I don't believe the time frame that the bible suggests. 6000 years when human remains have been found that are close to 200,000 years old. Genesis, in my opinion, could be a real creation story, just in a wrong time frame.

Evolutionists are biologists who specialize in evolution. They have no special education or research knowledge or expertise in cosmology or in planetary science. I suppose they accept the current paradigms of science in disciplines other than their own, the same way that cosmologists, say, accept the ruling scientific paradigms in biology, including evolution, because they have no specific expertise in it.
