Just trying to be sure I really understand. In the sentence Although
1.Who does the I refer to? you or Marcus


2.One would not expect a YEC to be a theistic evolutionist, so I would
therefore find a sentence more like "Although YEC, thus I am not a
theistic evolutionist,..." to make more sense, but maybe I am missing
the point you were trying to make.

I forgot a NOT. It should state although NOT a YEC, I am not either a
theistic evolutionists.

In other words, I see some big flaws in the current paradigm - which is
one of the reasons I did my
graduate work in paleobotany. Christians have to often avoided those
areas. In that regard, I am
glad to see some YEC, who often have (in my opinion avoided mainstream
geology and paleontology)
doing good work and learning in the area.
