I have found it typical of YEC science and history that proponents begin

or misrepresent or be selective about the history to supportl the
predetermined outcome. Read the preface to vol. one of RATE for an example
of the science; read vol. 3 of Morris' *The Creation Trilogy* to see what he
does with history. As David B, points out, their approach is the opposite of
that of scientific research, and it is the opposite of good historical
