|There are some rather disturbed people on the PR site. Nothing compared to the RaptureReady crowd. There is an entire site dedicated to insane end of the world fanatics. Andrew and some of the others would fit right in with that crowd.|
Premier Radio is considered quite a good Christian broadcaster.
I will leave you to decide.
I e-mailed UCB (a very similar type of station) a while ago Michael and was answered by a Peter Boyd from their Belfast office. Now, while he did say they allowed for diffierent views (something some of the cretins on Premier's forum do not) he did pioint me to the "helium in zircons" claim on the ICR website as proof of a young Earth. UCB have put out some of the Christians in science material (I've seen Sam Berry presenting programmes on the station) along with some YEC videos as well (Life's story for example, Philip Bell, Paul Garner, and Vij Sodera). At least they do allow some debate on the issue. I would imagine Premier Radio are very much the same. The very fact that they've had you as a guest on some of their programmes does show that in principle, they do allow for different views, rather like UCB.
This is in contrast to broadcasters like Howard Condor's Revelation/Genesis TV which put out several hours of YEC material daily (sometimes much more than this) and to my knowledge have never, ever, had a guest on that is either OEC, a gap theorist, or a TE. Mind you, I have noticed Premier Radio now broadcast this:
This originates from Ballymoney free Presbyterian church, as far as I can tell, a hotbed of YECism in NI. It's Mervyn Storey's home congregation. Storey is a YEC MLA who is attempting to get YECism presented at the Giant's Causeway as well in museums and schools. Paul Taylor (AiG UK) had a conference in the church recently.
As for the Rapture Ready crowd Gary, I take it you've seen this one on Youtube:
I assume it was them who put that one out ????
I think a lot of evangelical Christians don't realise that Dispensationalism was in fact considered heresy really up until quite recently. Well, until John Nelson Darby's ideas became the norm. Surprisingly, Darby was actually an Anglican (something I hadn't realised until quite recently)
Yeah but Derby left us Anglicans to go his own sweet way
