I agree with George here. When I was a publishing YEC, I believed my
position was the correct position. This was based upon placing a
predominance upon my interpretation of the Bible rather than on the
scientific data. I KNEW there were problems, but I wasn't lying--in
general, neither are those who are still YECs.
