Yes. He didn't seem to worry about the data. I stood in his office telling
him that Jody Dillow had a mathematical error in his Dissertation (which
became the book The Waters Above). Henry kept telling me that if there was
an error someone would have found it. I kept telling him that I had found
it. We were going nowhere. Before Dillow published, he totally gave up the
approach which had won him is Th.D from Dallas Theological Seminary and
tried a new approach which also has an error. But by then I had given up.

However, I was very pleased in 1990 to find out that Vardiman of ICR was
willing to say that I had been correct all along.

But to turn one of your aguments around, you asked me whether I or my
atheist boss was more likely to support immoral behavior. I didn't answer
you then. I will answer you now. I don't think either of us is more
likely. Christians who engage in inattention to facts are not dealing
forthrightly with their readers.

I agree that the results are up to the Lord. But our decision to be
scrupulously honest or not with the data is ENTIRELY under our control.

I should thank you. One always learns in discussions like this and I am
learning a lot.
