I meant "preposterous" in about the same sense that I would apply the
word to a claim that Eddie Goedel (the midget signed by Bill Veeck for one at
bat with the St. Louis Browns) was as great a hitter as Ted Williams, or that
Helen Steiner Rice was a better poet than Emily Dickinson.
I would not kill or die to combat either of those propositions, or indeed even
want to spend much time debating them. I do think that it's unfortunate, and
hinders serious discussion, when statements like "maybe the YECs are right" get
put into the theology-science mix.
