In this case, the leftist press horribly misrepresented Dr. Danny Faulkner, which prompted Ken Ham to set the record straight: http://blogs.answersingenesis.org/blogs ... n-abounds/ And we see the predictable result, where bigoted anti-creationists spread the untruths without checking facts, and then add their own uninformed prejudicial conjectures.

None of these TQEP ideologues seemingly has the guts to defend their behaviour here (except possibly using false identities as may have happened in the past briefly)!
All they have the bottle for is whinging about the BCSE from the safety of a facebook science-denial page from which all of us either have been banned already or no doubt would be banned if we went there.
And having just reviewed today's posts (after mine) at the other thread, I CANNOT SEE THE COMMENT THAT REMO WILSON IS WHINING ABOUT (WHICH CERTAINLY WAS NOT MY WORDS EITHER HERE OR ELSEWHERE).
Young Earth Creationism does seem to attract SOME of the nastiest amongst God's Elect.
As I've mentioned here recently, I rather suspect that most of them were dishonest BEFORE becoming YEC Christians or Christians and then YECs. Though I do not underestimate kiddie indoctrination in the Bible Belt, I suspect that most nicer or perhaps brighter Christians would either shun YEC-ism or else briefly embrace it but then reject it when they gradually discovered that to be a plausible YEC you have to LIE your mouth off about science and also ATTACK the integrity and honesty (using selected scriptures) of all those - Christian or not - who refute YEC dogma as unscientific, anti-scientific, pseudo-scientific, and ad hoc/illogical.
