Dick Fischer wrote; What I advocate now, that Genesis 2-11 does appear to have historically integrity, can be substantiated. There is no other method of apology that will come close, because something has to be left out. Liberal theology, starting in 1860 with Barth, Bultmann, and so on, leaves out history. YEC methodology ignores science. If Bible, science, and history are all given full face value (I'm not saying equal value) then this is the method that works.

I had a good chuckle at this as I haven't read any liberal theology starting in 1860 with Barth and Bultmann. My reason for that is that Barth and Bultmann were born in the 1880s so hadn't written anything by 1860.

With elementary howlers like that we can safely ignore what Dick Fischer has to say.
