I will repeat. While I was a YEC I had many dinners with Gish, Austin,
Slusher, Barnes, and Whitelaw. I have discussed things with ole Henry in
his office. I corresponded with Dillow, John Baumgardner, Douglas Cox, John
Woodmorappe, George Howe, Eugene Chaffin, Russ Akridge Luther Sutherland,
Robert Brown, Walter Brown, Lambert Dolphin and many many more. Regardless
of what Del's creationist said, that was never brought up during the late
70s and 80s while I was busy publishing 20+ items for the CRSQ! It must be
something new. My suspicion is that Del's creationist is someone like Paul
Nelson or Jonathan Wells. But this is a wild guess.
