Answers In Creation
I do not know if this website has been mentioned or showcased on EvC before, but if not I wanted to bring it to your attention. http://www.answersincreation.org

I was very shocked and surprised when I found this website. I followed a link about "chickenosaurus" under the impression that this would be more creotortionist material. I was floored when I read that article and found it to be a critique of an article by Eric Hovind on CMI. In fact, a very well done and well researched criticism at that!

I discovered that Answers in Creation is an OEC website that fully endorses and supports all findings in science. The creator of the site, Greg Neyman, sent me this email in response to a YouTube review I made of his page:

Greg Neyman writes:

Thanks for reviewing the Answers In Creation website. I believe that if you cannot merge scientific discoveries with the Bible, then there is no point in following the Bible. Unfortunately, many of my Christian brothers believe that science is opposed to their interpretation of the Bible, and they attempt to discredit science, although all they end up accomplishing is discrediting themselves, and in the process, they bring ridicule upon the Christian faith as a whole. If the church is to continue to grow in today’s world, we must abandon the foolish teachings of young earth creationism and fully embrace science. Hopefully, this will eventually happen.

This page is a breath of fresh air, imho. I (obviously!) do not agree with all of their viewpoints. I do, however greatly respect their integrity and willingness to say "We do not have an answer for this yet, but will continue searching" rather than the standard of making something up.

My thought on this page is that it might be a good place to start for creationists that might really want to seek out answers. I have referred people to TalkOrigins, but wonder if this might be a better starting point as the authors are themselves Christians and may be viewed as less antagonistic toward the YEC perspective. Anyway, it is a really good source so far, and fairly well written and researched. I also like that it specifically hits those 'newsflashes' from AiG, CRI, etc., some of which wouldn't be worth TO's time to address (recycled PRATTS and the like).

ABE: I did search and found a thread about this site, but since it is from 2005 maybe worth mentioning AiC again!

“Gill slits” by any other name
I was recently sent this link to an article by Troy Britain called "Gill slits by any other name". I found it a great read and a really nice summary of the creationist errors (lack of understanding? Perhaps deception?) about pharyngeal pouches in chordates. http://pigeonchess.com/...05/31/gill-slits-by-any-other-name
