Re: The date of the flood - not necessary yet?

Interestingly, this human tendency to jump to conclusions has secondary and tertiary effects. Not only do creationists jump to conclusions like, for example, that the earth is young, they also jump to the conclusion that the evidence supporting that fact must exist, else so many books and websites wouldn't be saying so. They then jump to another conclusion that the people behind those books and websites know what they're talking about.

I've been reading quite a bit in this thread and so far have read no statements by any creationists claiming that the earth is young. Of course by now you're aware that I'm not a YEC and Architect says he's not.

Setting The Record Straight
RAZD writes:

Curiously the OP does not require one or the other, rather it has to do with explaining the diversity of sedimentary fossils on mountain tops and how a Y/O/G creationist would explain this fact.

I understand, but since Percy and others tend to paint all creationists with this YEC brush, I saw fit to set the record straight.

That YEC brush, which is neither Biblical or scientific, works to weaken creationist's credibility in these science threads.
