    I appreciate the correction. I will have to go look up the writings of these
    guys. Were they all from the late 1800s and early 1900s? There was a period
    of time when the majority of conservative Christians accepted the age of the
    earth. This was prior to the advent of Henry Morris and John Whitcomb. I
    would say that never have the conservatives had a majority or anywhere near
    a majority who accepted evolution.
