    First, I'll say that I'd be absolutely delighted to drop
    this thread. But I know how irritating it is when relevant
    questions get ignored. So I'll at least answer this one.
    I think the others have been discussed very thoroughly in
    this forum.

    Again, I harbor no resentment towards non-YEC Christianity.
    YEC is a cult, and I abhor it.

    Blake, there was no Adam and Eve, no original sin, and thus
    no need for a savior. Christianity seems to have largely
    evolved into a social network, where it is still functioning
    (talking first world, here).

    The fact is that the Bible reads like mythology. I refuse
    to base my life on mythology. I wouldn't base my life on
    Homer's writings.

    In all likelihood, any further replies in this thread will be
    off-list. I do hope that the ASA continues to point out the
    hideous deceit of YEC.
