Yes, because last spring /summer when I was asking questions about Jeanson’s work because I didn’t understand it, you kept asking why he wasn’t considering/addressing whole genome studies. I knew really nothing of creation science at the time, but I don’t think that question is not one you would ask if you’d deeply considered what they’ve written (as it didn’t take even me long to understand after I read up on it). Your presentation on Erica’s channel also showed you didn’t represent their positions correctly or carefully and when I called you out on that, it was frustrating that nothing was exactly corrected and I wasn’t sure whether you didn’t understand their position, got it a bit wrong, or just refused to explain to me why it was wrong, or somewhere in between.
I didn’t comment on it yet, but the Q&A you provided on the WSJ article almost dug a deeper hole, except you explained some if the unfortunate things you’ve seen happen to other professors. I think the WSJ article may be as bad as others are saying it is - it deeply frustrated me. The ramifications are not good. IMO, the takeaway I got from that Q&A it seems your beef is actually with academic freedom for professors in a Christian universities who retroactively are required to affirm positions after hiring, but pushing this is not a way to achieve that.
This itself is a straw man because in context, this paragraph is referring to engaging with the scholarly literature. When directly asked why you haven’t, you have said previously it’s because you haven’t been invited to submit to AIG. That didn’t address the question. AFAIK, you don’t have to be invited to submit something for their journal. But you could even blog on your site.
And your proof of this is?
Venema has debated him and Duff blogs his criticism. Where is one article in which you have disputed a specific scientific claim of YEC creation science? I haven’t seen anything in writing besides extremely short responses on this forum. I would love to know if I’ve missed something. The most I’ve seen was on Erica’s channel, and I’ve already explained what I thought of that.
Who is “us”? And on what terms are you requesting engagement? If the charge is that you don’t engage the literature and just attack strawmen, then show it’s not true by engaging the scholarly creationist literature.
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic,[g] let him have your cloak as well. 41 And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42 Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,[g] serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly.[h] Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it[i] to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
I’m using these to minister to myself also. I’ve been reading through OT prophets - currently Jeremiah, bit I think it would do my soul a bit of good to read through a few NT verses each day too.
