    I want to thank those of you who have been kind enough to give me some
    feedback on the proposed articles I will submit for publication in PSCF.

    If any of you know Scripture verses (preferably KJV) that weigh against the
    YEC method of apology, would you please email them to me?

    For example, YEC's believe in 24-hour days of creation in Genesis 1.

    Yet a psalm of Moses states: : "For a thousand years in Thy sight are like
    yesterday when it passes by, or as a watch in the night (Psalm 90:4)." And
    Peter echoes that sentiment in II Peter 3:8, showing that God's time and
    man's time are dissimilar.

    YEC's believe the earth can be dated from 6,000 to 10,000 years old.

    But in Habakkuk 3:6. The mountains are described as "everlasting," the
    hills are "perpetual." The Hebrew words 'ad and 'owlam mean "long
    duration," "ancient," "forever," and "continuous existence."

    I know some of the scriptural retorts to the YEC view, maybe I know most,
    but I doubt I have them all.

    My intention is to make the case as strong as possible to show that there
    is no scriptural support for YEC - just the opposite in fact. If the
    articles are published, I can email them to conservative Christian
    organizations that have been thus far pro-YEC. I think If science alone
    would dissuade these folks, it would have done so by now. They may not
    know geology or biology, but most Christians read the Good Book from time
    to time. It might be possible to chip away at the support ICR and other
    YEC instigators have enjoyed by default from those who may be
    well-intentioned, but are poorly informed.

    At least that is my hope.
