YEC, OEC, and Spong plus mitochondrial mutants

I was reading the online New York Times today and there was an article
on mitochondrial mutations that give its human carriers an advantage in
cold weather. Doug Wallace’s group claims there are positive mutations
in mitochondrial DNA that can be found in American Indians, East Asians
and Northern Europeans but not in Africans. They suggest that such
mutations might also account for certain disease susceptabilities found
in Africans as well (like prostate cancer and diabetes).

This is an interesting article in and of itself, but at the end of the
article under the advertiser links I saw the following three links:

Creation Evidence
Bishop Spong's Weekly Essay Series: A New Christianity for a New World

7 Day Creation
Did God create everything in 7 day? What does the Bible & evidence say?

Answers In Creation
Provides Answers from Creation Support for Old-Earth Creationists

I found it quite interesting that these three links were found together
in the New York Times under an article on evolution. These web sites
pretty well bridge the spectrum from one extreme to the other.
