Obviously a YEC interpretation of the Bible is possible - even for those who do
see that Gen.1 does speak of creation of living things from the waters and the earth.
Millions of Christians through the centuries, including some pretty smart ones, held
this view. But YEC is (a) not the only way of reading the Bible and (b) in light of
scientific developments is in massive conflict with what we know about the world. Thus
this interpretation is untenable today.
