I believe God created the universe.

Does that make me a Creationist?
In the strictest sense? No, unless you also advocate that Adam and Eve were the first humans, and that God created everything as it currently is.
But wasn't creation made perfect, as in the Garden of Eden.

How did it become so imperfect?
Well, there's a difference between believing God set things in motion, and God making humans exactly as they are, wholly unchanging over thousands of years.

A Creationist might argue either the introduction of the Serpent (as Satan) who tempted Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit, or that mankind decided to do wrong in the sight of God unbidden.

Of course, this opens up even more questions about how something that only knew good could know evil and be held responsible for that, but that has been addressed millions of times, and there's no real point to it anymore.
