    Hello Samual, Jonathan and others,

    I opened this message because it was from Johnathan and I always open his
    messages, regardless of the topic, because I enjoy his opinions and
    questions; but this time iot was the information from Samuel that got my
    interest. In my 20+ years of being in and around the oil buisness and
    geologic education, and with one exception, the only young earth geologists
    I know or know of are those affiliated with the various young earth
    institutes such as ICR or who teach at a college affiliated with a religious
    denomination. The one exception was a geologist I briefly corresponded with
    a couple of years ago who worked for Mobile in Dallas. Therefore I am very
    curious about where these two people went to school, what their degrees were
    in, what level of education the attained, what their areas of specialization
    are and whether they were young earth creationists before they went to
    school, became converted to this view in school, or after they graduated and
    started working. Perhaps someone could provide this information.

    There are a couple of reasons I want the information I requested in the
    previous paragraph. The first is that I try to keep a list of active young
    earth creationists and YEC organizations so I can provide this information
    to my students in my historical geology classes and the second is that I am
    interested in the data and the logic upon which such beliefs rest.
