I do hope that all our ASA meetings will be bathed in prayer as well. =
But I also hope that no one uses that prayer as a means of indicating we
have the "right" answer."

I appreciate that thoughtful commentary on the ICR's "bathed in prayer"
note. Yes, there are two kinds of prayer: (1) Oh Lord, show those other
people how wrong they are and how right we are, and (2) O Lord, we pray
for YOUR insight into these matters.

I attended a week long seminar by ICR in Dallas in 1988. The prayers
there were largely of the first kind (not entirely). The ICR folks were
uniformly courteous and friendly -- even Ken Ham. But they sure were sure
of themselves! <G>
