that Bill is a young earth.
1. The probabilities are with it. 99.99% of all global flood advocates
today beleive that the vast majority of the sediments were deposited in a 1
year catastrophe. There was a short period in the early 1800s where men like
Buckland believed in an old earth and a global flood where only one or two
layers were the flood. But the fact that none of the Tertiary strata could

3. Bill wrote: "Many YEC scientists are working to
