'Religious' dogma trumping science and common sense

"If κ1 Ceti truly is a good example of what the sun was like in its youth, then the evolutionary view of life on earth may be in trouble."
NO. I don't think so. Scientists DON'T think Earth had life from 'year 1'. And surely it would make more sense - if our Sun was specially and recently created as Faulkner would claim - for κ1 Ceti NOT to look like it 'EVOLVED' without any God designing anything (as it rather does with its observed magnetic instability making more life difficult on any orbiting planets).

It's beginning to look a bit like YECs are claiming deliberate design for OUR (unusual?) Sun and Solar System ONLY ... (The only one the Bible says much about.)
Whereas things seem to be pretty bleak elsewhere - even around Suns of similar size to our star: http://arxiv.org/abs/1603.03937

Anthropic principle?
