    GLENN MORTON is not an acronym. Just an oil man.

    It is an accronym for a football play where the QB tells the RE what to do:
    Go Left, East, Now North, Move Over Right, Turn Out Now!

    I distinguish their ideas and beliefs not them. At least I haven't told any
    of them that they are liars. Liars seems to be a word directed to an
    individual, not an organization.

    Walter, George's category 3 are Day Age people. They believe in an old earth
    and thus are not YECs. One can hardly be YEC and believe in an old earth.
    Occasionally, one like Allen or my good friend, Art Chadwick comes along who
    believe in an old universe and young-earth. But the young-earth belief
    makes them YECs

    " Category 3 corresponds to Christians who have relatively sensible
    ideas about
    creation & evolution. Perhaps some of their views are unsophisticated
    (e.g., day-age
    schemes to "reconcile" Genesis 1 & evolution) but there is no urgency about
    them." From George's post.

    Calling their leaders 'liars' will not endear you to them.
