    Hi John,

    It's nice of you to write :-)

    I hope the ASA continues to press the weakness of creationism (which I,
    personally, just about equate with YEC). I do think this cancer in our
    culture is best opposed by Christians (that gives Christians an escape
    path like I had in Creation and Time, by Hugh Ross).

    But, obviously I am not the first person to stumble across intellectual
    challenges to Christianity. I would like to mention one thing. My
    exiting Christianity WAS NOT A CHOICE. It was sort of like coming to a
    red light at an intersection. As nice as is would be if the darn thing
    were green, reality is reality. Unfortunately, your post doesn't leave
    much to comment on, as it is merely a referral.
