With AiG being a creationism propaganda organization, obviously aimed at a general audience consisting of primarily fundamentalist creationists, with the purpose of supporting the belief in six-day creation and a literal reading of Genesis, I donít see how stuff like that is relevant Ė except to impress the crowd with sciency stuff.
I think I am reasonably well informed and knowledgeable person, but from reading the Snelling piece I can only conclude that in order to determine if I think heís got a valid argument, Iíd have to do quite a thorough study of geology and nuclear physics.
As far as I am concerned I donít for a second think that his argument is of much relevance for the question of the age of the Earth or the planetís geological and biological history.
The problem is that creationists donít believe science beyond facts like gravity, and donít want to learn science. They believe creationism and Ďstudyí creationism.
BTW, isnít Snelling his own twin?
YEC creationists denigrate science without an inkling of what their lives would be without it. YEC creationism is an enrageous, abominable insult to the the human intellect.
