    Late last year, a number of ICR books were placed

    upset. There is no way that most of the members of
    the congregation could tell that it was VooDoo and
    not Science. Even some pretty smart engineers get
    "faked out". I have spent a lot of time pushing to
    get a more balanced presentation in the church.
    (Note that I said balanced, rather than a slam
    dunk as advocated by some.)

    One thing has been to get the scientific outlook
    listed as a resource on the Church's web site. It
    was not an easy task and I believe that others
    tried to undermine my effort. Anyhow, it finally
    happened. Take a look at the last item on:

    Just a small step, but something.

    Now, if we can just get you you guys and gals to
    be sensitive and recognize that a gentle approach
    might win some ASA visitors away from the false
    science of ICR ........
