Don Patton lives here in Dallas. I have had lunch with him a couple of
times and have attended the local creationist conferences. For a Ph.D. in
geology (which he didn't have in 1986 when I first met him) he knows darn
little geology. Doesn't know what a right-lateral fault is.

Glen Kuban has interesting information on the Dallasite Patton's credentials

Adam, Apes and Anthropology
Foundation, Fall and Flood
& lots of creation/evolution information
