Agreed. I'm not even sure that C. Van Til was a young-earther. I
happen to think that Warfieldian type evolutionism is fully
compatible with C. Van Til's perspective--along the lines that you
have quoted. In other words, evolutionary biology, as the rest of
modern science, is built upon Christian presuppositions.
Unfortunately, some people take presuppositionalism to mean that you
simply assume your conclusions. Thus, in the evolution/creation
debate you "presuppose" either one or the other and that dictates
your conclusion. So much for any kind of empiricism.
