What I believe is necessary is to take a public stance that while there may
be a number of possibilities or alternatives we could consider, YEC isn't
one of them. YEC is unacceptable as a viable Christian method of apology.
To state that YEC is not the only acceptable Christian view serves to
legitimize it. It would be tantamount to saying that Christianity is not
the only acceptable religion.
