    Hi Jonathan,

    I am no longer subscribed so this was sent to me by a friend. I will reply
    openly as one should always shed the maximal amount of light on the
    unchristian behavior of the YECs.

    As I recall the situation, circa Oct. 1998, Tim Thompson posted a critique
    of Humphreys' magnetic reversal ideas, I believe on the Evolution reflector.
    I added a few comments to it. That note was the reply by Humphreys. The
    only thing different between the copy posted on the ASA and what was
    originally posted was that originally Humphreys called me an apostate. I
    ignored that for a long while. But when I found that claim then repeated on
