I directed my remarks against ICR. You direct
yours against YECs. I know what you mean, but what
you say and what you mean are two different
things. This is the point I attempt to make.
I know many people who would be considered to be
YECs and very few are members of ICR or in tune
with their scientific theories (see George's 3
categories of YEC). I respect the YEC oriented
people in my Church. I want to help them to see a
better "world view". That is why I worked so hard
to get ASA listed as a link on the Church's web
site. By leading my friends to that link, I hope
that they will a different story that some of the
trash put out by ICR, etc. This is just a small
(one church) effort, but if others did so as well,
perhaps the impact could spread.
At the same time, I think that any members of ICR
who really have degrees in science should have
them revoked. Yes I am harsh on them and I include
my former acquaintance Sebeny who obvious spent
too much time in the Arizona sun without his
famous cowboy hat on. (no grin)
