So they don't believe in evolution. The believe in set of apologetics which supports their assumed conclusion. The whole idea of it was contrived as a rejection of evolution as part of the ID agenda.

They accept that evolution, in the sense of change in living organisms, occurs but they deny that all organisms are related through universal common ancestry. In most scientific journals, the word "evolution" tends to refer to the limited creationist concept rather than the over-arching concept of UCD. So, you might read in Nature about the evolution of pigmentation in salamanders or the evolution of a gene for digestion etc... Creationists don't have a problem with this at all.
