    I am one who appreciates RTB. Head is Hugh Ross, a physicist / astronomer who has
    built a large Christian following. His Basic approach: The Big Bang and its
    consequences are to be taken seriously by the Christian community. He is
    strongly opposed by Young Earthers, because of the Old Earth implications of the Big
    Bang. His approach to exegesis of Genesis I is to take the creation Days as long
    geologic periods.
    All God's best, Larry
