Re: YEC Substance
There's no such thing as a YEC who's brought any substance to the issues we debate here, and a YEC who's thought at depth on these issues is a contradiction in terms. In depth thinking would make him into an ex-YEC.

Being representative of YEC as an admin and being your insolent remark was boarding closely to violation of the guidelines, I had to restrain myself from utilizing my admin mode here, but I decided your false and demeaning comment could slide this time and I'll just protest as member Buzsaw instead.

Imo, you should climb down off your haughty high horse and acknowledge that in some areas we YECs have brought substance and yes, perhaps even to the point of debunking soundly some of the stuff some of you and yours do on this board. :rolleyes:

Re: YEC Substance
Personal position = YCC.
Admin position = YEC representation
YEC at EvC has pretty much been a coverall coloquialism pertaining to all Biblical fundamentalists, so don't be surprised when it's applied to me, especially in my administrative role. :)

The immeasurable present is forever consuming the eternal future and extending the infinite past.

Advice For Rob
Rob, we need and want you on the EvC creationist team. I have a few scripture verses which may help you regarding these suspensions you get. Romans 12:18: "If it be possible, inasmuch as lies within you, live at peace with all men."
Ecclesiastes 3:1-7 "For everthing there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven:...... 7.......a time to keep silence and a time to speak....."

I'm not making any claim to have mastered this myself but inasmuch as I have applied it, it helps keep me out of trouble. There are times when topic allows us to apply aspects of the gospel, salvation and other matters of our faith but when we break the established rules of boards we wish to participate in by being preachy and get careless with things we say, we do more damage than good for Christianity. Again, I'm not squeaky clean on this but I don't get suspensions by working at being mindful of the rules. Composing messages often takes a lot of time and thought for me, being aware that most will not agree nor regard things we believe as valid. The minority viewpoints are always more difficult to advance on a board whose majority members espouse a majority ideology. Thus it becomes all the more needful for us to proceed with care in a manner that will not compromise what we believe to be true.

Perhaps there have been times when I have been remiss in my admin role regarding your input and the problems you've had. I'll try to be more watchful of what is going on with you in case I may admonish or intervene on your behalf. Since you are far more advance in matters of science than I, my ability to evaluate your performance may be limited.

The immeasurable present is forever consuming the eternal future and extending the infinite past.
