    In the recent past I discovered that my daughter is a YEC. Not so much a
    YEC (science is not on her radar screen) but as a person who cannot
    accept evolution. She understands my point of view and accepts it as one
    with which she can sympathize (as a Christian) ---- but she does not
    believe it herself.

    Now when I read some of the ASA statements, there is nothing to rule out
    YEC as something acceptable to ASA. Yet the posts I see indicate a
    totally different story. Any acceptance of YECs is absent insofar as I
    can see. That is fine, but is it not totally hypocritical to have these
    two standards? If ASA is opposed to YEC why not have integrity to say
