For him, Dr. Ross said, the methods and theories of paleontology are one
“paradigm” for studying the past, and Scripture is another. In the
paleontological paradigm, he said, the dates in his dissertation are
entirely appropriate. The fact that as a young earth creationist he has
a different view just means, he said, “that I am separating the
different paradigms.”


Here we go again ! All sorts of pseudo-intellectual claptrap on paradigms to
justify nonsense. I cant be more charitable.

Thomas Kuhn has a lot to answer for for his silly book on Scientific
Revolutions which didn't work for his so called revolutions - and especially
Lyell on geology and today's birthday boy Darwin
