On reflection, perhaps I was a bit hasty writing as I did - boys will be boys, I suppose!

The analysis you offer is helpful - except that you appear not to have factored in _all_ the evidence (now freely available) that impinges on the matter of origins. You really must move with the times, be more flexible in your outlook and allow a little light to dawn.

But, concerning Dr Sarfati, I am intrigued to know why you and Roger (possibly others) are so enraged with him. Perhaps you could put it in a nutshell for me - or, otherwise, direct me to appropriate points in the archive. Thanks.


PS Your Welsh appears to be worse than mine! 'Thank you very much' is surely 'diolch _yn_ fawr'. Whatever would your old Welsh churchwarden say if he knew? But, be assured - my lips are sealed. V

  Vernon, I am awfully sorry, old chap. I am afraid I am unable to see how AIG's unique brand of vitriol and bigotry as shown by dear Socrates and frequently directed at Glenn and Burgy among many many others can have the slightest connection with the Gospel of love and truth found in Jesus Christ.

  It seems that to be rational and responsible is to accept all the nonsense poured forth by YECs who twist and distort and misrepresent they discuss. I attempt to show how YEC is neither rational nor responsible nor even honest. But it is very hard for anyone to persuade YECs that they might even be wrong.

  I would point out that you have often pulled out the super-spiritual card on this list on those who are sensible enough not to buy into your YEC views or Mosaic maths (is Mosaic math better for those who can't spell)

  Please put your house in order.
