Just When the Science Backs Genesis, Denominations Back Off: Real Science Friday co-hosts Fred Williams and Bob Enyart discuss an article in Ken Ham's Answers magazine on Christian denominations like the Assemblies of God and the Presbyterian Church of America that are tolerating, or even promoting, a rejection of the biblical creation account of a young earth and the global flood. Bob and Fred talk about the billions of years of missing igneous rock, billions of years of missing nickel from meteorites, etc., all missing if the earthy actually were billions of years old. Also hear their take on Pi in the Bible.

I have had some experience in the AG. Are they promoting the gap theory? I believe this came from the Dakes Commentary on the Bible, which seemed to be popular with some back when I went to Bible college in the eighties.

As you might know, gap theory is a form of OEC, though most of it's advocates don't consider themselves that. Mostly because the ones I knew weren't concerned about science, they were attempting to explain "old earth" evidence, and left it alone.

The article didn't mention the gap theory. I don't have the copy of the magazine with me as I have loaned it out, but I recall a more generalized statement such that all views should be accepted, or something of that nature. One thing for sure is that the geologists in that church would not be promoting the gap theory, since its highly likely they reject a global flood (since it would remove their geological column, at least they way they interpret it).
