That's what I figured, and I agree with you. This is why I fight so hard
for historicity of the Genesis accounts, in my opinion, the YECs are correct
that if Genesis isn't historically true, then it can't be God's word. This
of course upsets my libral brothers in Christ. On the other hand, the YECs
propose a theory that can't possibly be historically true--infact it is
already falsified
