The oldy goldy Bevets chimes in to criticize this:
|personal theology has primacy over empirical facts|
You see Bevets thinks YECs:
|would call it ‘normative theology over personal facts’. Therein lies the rub.|
But let's analyze what Bevets is really saying here - theology is "normative", and all formerly empirical facts are now "personal". In other words, the facts that we encounter in our day-to-day lives have no bearing (they are "personal" and therefore subjective) over the "normative" reading of the Bible. Make sure this is straight in our heads here - Bevets believes that *facts* are irrelevant to the YEC hypothesis since they are by definition "personal". Have you ever heard anything as full of post-modern gobbledygook before?
