Having knowledge of the scientific method while having conducted significant research, one might be listed in a national register as a scientist. In many cases, he or she will have the Ph.D. and will have produced scientific articles, documents books or other writings.

Of these there are two kinds. Having a materialistic view, one will limit evidence to that acquired through one or more of five physical senses, while another will regard as valid evidence gained through six senses that can be tested and verified by others.

While the first typically expresses confidence in an evolution, the second often affirms a faith in a creation.
