    Sigh !!

    Then why is it that the "YECs" that I know have no opinion whatsoever about
    the scientific notions that you suggest?

    Why is it that the YECs I know do not give any credence to science

    Why are your YECs so far removed from the ones that I know?

    Do we really live in that far apart in a world?

    Massachusetts is supposedly one of the great technical centres --- with MIT
    and Harvard and RPI and "wooster polly"., etc.

    Yet it is only out in your COW COUNTRY that science leads in the
    philosophical front of YECism??

    Maybe your cows are more susceptible to pseudo-science -- although one
    would expect exactly the opposite!


    I find this difficult to believe.

    But stranger things have been true.

    In any consistent theory, there must exist true but not provable statements. (Godel's Theorem)

    You can only find the truth with logic If you have already found the truth without it. (G.K. Chesterton) ===================================
