"creature (n.) Look up creature at Dictionary.com
late 13c., "anything created," also "living being," from Old French creature (Modern French créature), from Late Latin creatura "thing created," from creatus, past participle of Latin creare "create" (see create). Meaning "anything that ministers to man's comforts" (1610s), after I Tim. iv:4, led to jocular use for "whiskey" (1630s)."
I'm seeking a better word than "creature". This word automatically implies that a creature is something that was created by a deity. I was contemplating trying to come up with a new word to replace creature that would automatically imply that a "creature" is a result of evolution and has nothing to do with a "creation" or a "creator". I just wanted to share the thought and see if anyone here who reads this has any ideas or already knows of a word that is like that.
