I am a bit surprised that Paul is on the committee. One time a couple of
years ago he told me that he wouldn't join the ASA because he refused to
join organizations that required a statement of faith. While I think Paul
is well qualified to write the YEC part of this, I am just curious, is he a
member of the ASA? If he is not I have no objection to him--as I said, I am
just curious.
