        Nobody has a good scientific answer to the claim that God created the world 15
minutes ago with all memories &c. Nobody has a good scientific answer to the claim that
I'm a brain in a vat & my body & all the rest of you are figments of my imagination.
But nobody with any sense for reality takes such notions seriously. Much less should
any Christian who believes that God created a real world that was "very good" entertain
such notions.
        Your use of pejorative language ("spews forth") to describe people who criticize
these ideas indicates that you've lost your perspective on this issue. I suggest that
you step back and take a hard look at them. A person can accept the apparent age notion
& still believe that there's a real world, but once you've taken that step there's
nothing to stop a descent into complete solipsism.
