2 comments. No I haven't. It will take me a week or so to get this new
computer into shape so I am not doing a lot of looking for things right now.

Second, I know what you are saying about why the young-earther's don't talk
about SN1987. But let me point something out that doesn't apply to you, but
is very sad. Christians are called to the highest moral standard. That
should constrain us to talk about data that goes against our position and
to admit it when we are demonstrated to be wrong. It saddens me that I
don't see those traits among many of the published apologists! What I see
is the same argument continued for years after it has been disproven and/or
pointed out to the individual. In my opinion, that is not only sloppy
research, it is morally incorrect to continue to repeat the argument after
it has been shown to be erroneous.

Example: solar shrinking (disproven in 1981/82) continues to be published.
