      The author of this letter obviously doesn't "disbelieve"
    radio-isotope dating. YEC's are notorious "nerd baiters".
    He's hoping some professor of Nuclear Physics who has had
    his nose to the atomic grindstone for 40 years and has never
    had time to think about "God" will rise to the bait. Obviously
    the author of this letter is a vicious "scientist hater".
      He has had the leisure and privilege to (accidentally probably)
    find out what God is, and now he want's to go out and stomp some
    poor old Prof. who doesn't know what it is, but is quietly
    sacrificing his entire life providing the scientific wherewithal
    to actually prove God.
      The guy that wrote this is a snake,... and thinks knowledge of
    God is something that can be used to exploit people.
      The canard about not believing isotope dating is a BOOBY
    TRAP and a HOAX, aimed at people like you. The YEC's after all
    are trying to beat you at your own game Ms. Masters, and from
    the sounds of it, they just might.
