Moorad: If YEC are doing science, then they should withstand the normal criticism
that goes with doing science. However, I can imagine that none of their
papers would make it into most scientific journals. I am not evaluating
their work but indicating how close-minded is the scientific community to
new ideas.

Oh please.... Is that the best you can do... The non-existing conspiracy of the "scientific community"...

Moorad: The only reason that we know how a painter painted by observing his finished
work is that we are painters ourselves. Such is not the case with humans vis
a vis God and His creation. We truly will never know how God created. We can
speculate, but that is all we can do.

How can you be sure of that ?

Moorad: The question of origins is a very difficult one. We do not know in physics
why the fundamental constants have the values they do. How can we then solve
problems that are astronomically more difficult that these fundamental
question in physics?

That's faulty logic. YOu have not even tried to establish that these are more difficult or that the issue of fundamental constants cannot be solved.
