Although I think there are a few young earth geologists there are no young earth geochronologists.
Using the median as a measurement for the average size of animal is bogus maths it should be the mean which will be much bigger.
My Bible says "Take with you seven of every kind of clean animal".
Just been interviewed by Premier Radio on the Flood alongside the SF expert Paul Garner (his works on S are F)
When I challenged Garner on whether there were any YEC geologists he drew my attention to a Crationsit Geology Conferecne at Cedarville Coll Ohio where many YEC geologsits gave papers - about a dozen noe employed as geologists but some claiming to teach geology in YEC colleges

Couldn't resist a look, and really wish I hadn't bothered, someone has resurected radiohalos and there is really rubbish on ice cores.
While Creationists regard this as a holy war worthy of their almost undivided attention, most scientists have given it short shrift, either by ignoring it or by laughing at such pretensions of "science." As a result, most scientists remain so unfamiliar with the claims, methods, and arguments of Creationists that they are unprepared for participation in any public confrontation.
For those without the time or access to such resources, this article is intended as a "crash-course" introduction to Creationist history, ideas, and methods as well as some factual tools to oppose Creationist claims and a few of the best cartoons to inject a bit of humor into any discussion
In reading such literature, a traditional geologist has difficulty keeping the time scale in order. Time and again, I found myself confusing pre- and post-flood events or mixing creation week events with flood events. One version (Froede, 1995) has a rudimentary scale with major eras being Creation Week, Antediluvian Ages, Flood Event, Ice Age, and Present. Another by Walker (1994) splits geologic time into eras and stages, based largely on numbers of days during creation week and the flood event. In order to minimize my confusion and get the overall Biblical chronological sequence in order, I found it necessary to go through conflicting ideas in many Creationist papers before being able to build my own version of their geologic column. Once this framework of Creationist geologic time was in place, many of their speculations could be added to other valid geologic observations which they generally ignore to produce
McIntosh fancies himself as geologist but doesn't even have an O level in either geology or geography.
McIntosh's geology is atrocious. His scientific (sic) appendices
to his Geology for Today contains so many errors that they must
