Hi ASA,

Another personal tale of woe. Why is science so badly ignored in
seminaries? "No relevance" in this day and age? Come on!

[snipped, a rather disturbing story to add to the others - rejection and
misunderstanding. What's wrong with this picture?]

I went to an AOG Church for some time and eventually left because of a
yelling Pastor [why does preaching have to be loud?] The previous Pastor
wasn't just YEC, but also a geocentrist! I was in the youth group at the
time and we had a visit from the local version of ICR, the Creation
Science Foundation. The most disturbing thing about the encounter was
just how willing the kids were to take in what they were told
uncritically. Aussie kids are normally quite non-conformist, but this
they just gulped down.

Sad but true...

Adam
