    Another possibility is that one is amazed that such a major change is not
    thought of when such charges are brought--even when they know of the change.
    Indicates a lack of thoroughness.

    I think you meant that to say 'the same claim I make about YECs.' If in
    order to save Christianity and the Judeo-christian view, we must make God a
    liar, then we are destroying christianity. Why would we destroy
    Christianity in order to save it??? Makes no sense to me.

    As to science, I reject YEC science for scientific reasons. It simply is
    laughably false as you note of Morris' entropy stuff. If you want a
    scientific reason to reject the appearance of age, then look at SN1987A.
    There is all the data needed to avoid appearance of age except in the face
    of the most vile deception possible. see
    down towards the bottom.
