Your question prompts my memory and what I wrote below was incorrect. The
YEC argument, e.g., in Ken Ham's _The Lie: Evolution_, is that Jesus
accepted the book of Genesis as literal truth, and "on at least six
occasions, Jesus Christ either quoted from or referred to some aspect of
Genesis 1 through 11." The references that Jesus makes to the early
chapters of Genesis have nothing directly to do with Gen. 1 creation story,
as you undoubtedly know; they deal with divorce and remarriage (Matt.
19:3-9; Mark 10:2-12), and the flood (Matt. 24:37-38; Luke 17:26-28). The
general argument in this portion of Ham's book (p. 147-148) strikes me as
being logically faulty.
