Re: [asa] Believing Scripture but Playing by Science’s Rules

Has someone pointed out to the Times the major flaws in their title?
Believing Scripture does not inherently entail YEC, nor is obeying the
rules of science contrary to Scripture.

Ross had trouble with a previous degree, having done good work but
with at least part of the department unwilling to grant the degree to
a YEC. Fastovsky knew what he was getting but was willing to do it.

The ICR has been very slow about admitting that Wise disagrees with
many of their claims (possibly slack updating rather than willful
misrepresentation). Unless they make conspicuous effort to criticize
the claims of standard YEC, I don't think they will have much impact
to improve the movement; willingness to promote standard YEC will
obviously not help improve its truthfulness.
