            I have little hope that my advice will be followed but will
    express it anyway: Those who are concerned about ASA being a
    significant factor in serious science-theology discussions should avoid
    putting anything at all about YEC claims, pro or con, in PSCF. The same
    is true, for that matter, of all concordist discussions of Gen.1-3.
    When many people see these debates going on in such a journal at the
    beginning of the 21st century they conclude that the organization whoich
    publishes it is hopelessly antiquated & not worth being involved with.
