Almost all thinking men who have studied the laws which govern the animate and inanimate world around us, agree that the belief in the existence of one Supreme Creator, possessed of infinite wisdom and power, is open to far less difficulties than the supposition of the absence of any cause, or of the existence of a plurality of causes. Charles Babbage, 1864
I love your site! I **really** enjoy reading it for several specific reasons: 1. It uses the latest (as in this month!) research as a launch pad for opinion; for years I have searched for this from a creation science viewpoint, and now, I’ve found it. 2. You have balanced fun with this topic. This is hugely valuable! Smug Christianity is ugly, and I don’t perceive that attitude in your comments. 3. I enjoy the expansive breadth of scientific news that you cover. 4. I am not a trained scientist but I know evolutionary bologna/(boloney) when I see it; you help me to see it. I really appreciate this. — a computer technology salesman in Virginia

This truth has dawned on physicists too: universal equations are all very well, but the world actually consists of particular solutions, and these are generally the result of contingent history. One size does not always fit all. — Nature, Editorial, 14 April 2011
George Young was a competent geologist during the time when Lyell’s uniformitarianism was becoming accepted. Young defended a young earth and a world-wide flood.

The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke open, and the clouds drop down the dew. — Proverbs 3:19-20
