I have a copy of Thomas Cooper, Evolution, The Stone Book and the Mosaic

have any contention you wish but if it is based on inaccuracy it goes the
way of Thomas Barnes alternative physics.
YECs became very rare after 1855 and slowly increased especially in the
USAafter 1900 and had a population explosion after 1961 and the Genesis
