I've been asked about my "signature":
"“I am a young-age creationist because the Bible indicates the universe is young. Given what we currently think we understand about the world, the majority of the scientific evidence favors an old earth and universe, not a young one. I would therefore say that anyone who claims that the earth is young for scientific evidence alone is scientifically ignorant.” - attributed to Kurt Wise
As I best recall, the quote is credited as originating from an e-mail conversation between Wise and one of the evolution side. It can be found at quite a few sites (apparently always from evolutionists). I never found it on a creationist site, but face it, it's not the sort of thing creationists would be promoting.
I purposely used "- attributed to Kurt Wise" rather than "- Kurt Wise" as I recognize that the veracity of the thing is at least a bit shaky. But it does seem to be in character (as I understand it) for Kurt Wise.
That's the story. We can use it as a launch point for discussion of things Kurt Wise. I had unsuccessfully looked for an existing Kurt Wise topic. I suspect this is one buried here somewhere.
ps: I did start a "Kurt Wise" topic at evcforum.net back in 2003. It can be found at http://www.evcforum....=599&mpp=30&p=1
Looking at that topic now, I'm reminded that it was the quote in question that triggered the creation of that topic.
The quote was supposidly brought in from Theologyweb. Here is the link to that forum: http://www.theologyw...ampus/forum.php Maybe someone can track the quote down there.
