How about this question?

If man was made by scratch, and not by biological evolution, then why would humans have fused chromosomes from the apes? This is evidence of creating something from using something existing prior material, not creation from scratch.

Their answer? They probably haven't heard about this DNA evidence yet. It is fairly new... only a few years old.

Subject: [asa] Good questions to ask YECs

I recently read somewhere (probably in this discussion group, but I can't seem to find it now) something to the effect that the best way to make any progress with Young Earth Creationists is to ask them good questions and then give them time to think about the questions. Having been through the experience of several unproductive "discussions" with YECs in my local church recently, that sounds to me like particularly good advice. My question then is: What would be some good questions to pose to Young Earth Creationists?
