Hi Ed and Ron,

Glenn and I have been discussing the origin of coal on the ASA
ListServ. Glenn has taken the OEC view (of course) and I have presented
the YEC position. That thread might shed some light on your
discussion. If you would like to check the archives for April, go to

adn look for the "Coal and the YEC Position" thread. It's still
continuing, BTW, if you would like to subscribe.

Take care,
