    Burgy, from Allen's point of view that is exactly the choice. That is what
    YEC leaders teach. If evolution is true, then there is no God. And so, they
    set their followers up to become atheists when they learn about science. The
    YECs would be absolutely amazed at how many former YECs become atheists.
    Indeed, I think it is the quickest path to atheism. As George knows all to
    well, I have some sympathies with that position, but I don't want to get
    into it.
