[asa] TE Evangelists

I think it was Denis L. who said he was a little conflicted with those
YEC, and OEC, because they preach the gospel, unlike those in the TE
camp. I was thinking about it. People like Billy Graham and another
major evangelist that I know may be TE or lean towards TE. However,
they don't make their views on TE known. They preach the gospel without
a central role for Adam and Eve, or may explain Adam in theological
terms and skirting the "real person" question. So on one hand, there
are YEC's preaching the gospel along with YEC theology, but TE (or TE
friendly evangelists) simply just preaching the gospel, avoiding the
controversy altogether. Yes, there are no loud TE's preaching the
gospel and TE theology. I may be trying that in the future.

For those who claim there is no ancient science, I have two questions:


1. When, exactly, did science begin? Please be specific and
concise- 5 sentences or less.
2. Is saying "there was no ancient science" like saying "there was
no ancient business?" Business today didn't exist in the ANE. Today it
is thousands (or millions) times more complicated. Today we have world
markets, derivatives, high-speed computer stock trading, board of
directors, stock, bonds, futures, commodities, mortgages, various forms
of debt (home equity, credit card, reverse mortgage, etc).


My point, there was ancient science just like there was ancient
business, but the "memes" for each have considerably evolved.
