I think most of us are already aware that Ron Wyatt is a deceiver, or at
best, is self-deceived. His work does not square with any rational data.
He has to be the worst videographer in the world. Anyone else showing so
many fuzzy and blurred photos of anything would have been dismissed long
ago. But Ron has discovered an interesting facet of human nature that he
exploits mercilessly: if you present something people want to believe,
their criteria for evidence reach all time lows. As a geologist, you must
be particularly impressed with his finding of Sosom and Gomorrah (eroded
lake bed deposits!).

I would agree: Keep the faith. I would argue that there ain't many YEC's
that are scientists, and even fewer who are publishing scientists. So
there can't be "Many" YEC scientists who are working on a model. I share
your hope that a congruent model will emerge, and will be plausible. I at
least am working to this end.
