Botanist YEC pretends to be expert on planetary formation

EXTRA-SOLAR planets that is:
"Weird worlds require weird explanations ...".
Yes, very scientific. Presumably the weird solution is that God did it (even though such planets - which we cannot directly see from Earth and YECs have previously questioned their existence - get no mention in the Bible or any other sacred text that I know of).
He also claims: "... one thing is obvious—the original theory of planet formation, that they formed by the slow accumulation (‘accretion’) of dust particles orbiting a new star, is clearly wrong."
Yes - he knows better than the astronomers.
Though he forgot to mention that many extra-solar planets orbit two suns ie binary star systems.

What a wally! Citing the introduction to a workshop and the rhetorical headline of the conclusion of another to prove his point - it's to be hoped he made a better job of the botany that he should clearly have stuck to. As for citing Pasteur's experiment to justify a lifetime of creationism: it just shows how shallow his understanding was at the time - and seemingly continues to be. He doesn't even understand that the exoplanets detected by Kepter are only the ones that Kepler is able to detect - i.e. big enough!
