It's an age-old (centuries old) difference between two approaches to
apprehending truth: the authoritarian model (let us sweat it out behind
locked doors, and then we'll come forth and proclaim to all you Christian
masses what you should consider true), and the more recent scientific (&
democratic) model: stop being lazy and exert your own intellectual sweat.
It sounds like the CMI leans towards the second, while the lay YEC in the U.S.
is more comfortable with the first.
