Since I am not often called 'generous' I will take all examples I can get.
:-) My purpose was not really to critique Barnes but to inform Scott where
who commonsense science was. One thing I left out of my post is that I
looked for any references to young-earth creationism and I couldn't find it.
Apparently commonsense science has no common desire to tell their readers
where they are coming from

Absolutely agree. That is why I always told Tom that he could only persuade
me when he could build a cyclotron without reference to relativity. Barnes
never could. I suspect that Barnes was a big reason Slusher got into that
for lots of creation/evolution information
