(Talk.Origins quotes in blue)
1. Jean-Henri Fabre did indeed reject evolution (or transformism). However, neither were his views those of a Biblical creationist. He recognized that life changed through the various periods of earth's history. For earth history, he took as his book not the Bible but the earth itself
Since he rejected evolution, all that is left is creation. It does not appear that he was a biblical creationist, though.
2. Fabre excelled at observation (Darwin called him "the inimitable observer"), but he was not a scientist.
Neither, of course, was Darwin a "scientist". It is notable that Talk Origins seems to despise mere observation; they do prefer to major in unfounded speculation.
