"You are right. The world is only 6,000 years old and there was a flood that killed off the sinners. A boat was built to save all the animals."

I'm glad you see the truth!!

But I'm guessing you were sarcastic.

"Creationism (young earth) will never, ever be accepted by any credible scientist. That is a fact!"

Nope. Sorry, but you are WAY wrong on this point.

Full-time ICR Scientists not on Graduate School Faculty Several ICR scientists on the full-time staff, but not with faculty status (which requires the appropriate terminal degree) have specialized ministries that are equally vital to the over-all ICR ministry.

1. John Arend has a B.S. in geology from St. Lawrence University and the M.S. in science education from the ICR Graduate School. In addition, he has an M.B.A. (Syracuse University), M.Div. (The Master's Seminary), and extensive experience in Biblical counseling. He is now serving as Public Information Services Director.

2. Deborah Brooks has a B.S. from Bob Jones University and M.S. from ICR in science education. Debbie currently serves as one of ICR's Children's Ministries instructors for Good Science Workshops and Creation Science Camps.

3. William A. Hoesch is a field geologist with considerable industry experience as well as a B.S. degree in geology from the University of Colorado and the M.S. from the ICR Graduate School. He is also an effective speaker in churches, schools, and ICR field tours.

4. Henry M. Morris III has an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University and a D.Min. from Luther Rice Seminary. A very effective speaker at seminars and other meetings, his main responsibility is promoting financing for future special projects.

5. John Rajca is Curator of the ICR Museum of Creation and Earth History. He has a B.S. from Christian Heritage College and M.S. from the ICR Graduate School, both in biology.

6. Mike Riddle conducts extensive church creation tours and also has developed ICR's on-line creation course. He has a B.S. in mathematics from Southern Colorado University and M.A. in education from Pepperdine University, plus extensive experience with Microsoft and other companies in computer technology.

7. Frank Sherwin has a B.A. in biology and M.A. in zoology from Western State College and University of Northern Colorado respectively. He is a regular speaker for ICR's creation seminars and tours and has co-authored a recent book on creationist biology, Body by Design.

8. Frederick A. Willson, with over 30 years science teaching experience in public schools, directs science workshops for parents and teachers in Christian schools and home schools all over the nation. He has two B.S. degrees from Emporia State University in Kansas, one in biology, one in physical education.

Thus the ICR team currently includes 74 trained scientists, of whom 57 have earned doctorates in their fields from accredited universities. There are, of course, many thousands of other creationist scientists, with similar qualifications, who are not formally affiliated with ICR. Many of these are listed on ICR's website and many participate from time to time on ICR radio programs. Despite the claims and wishful thinking of many people, not all fully credentialed scientists are evolutionists. Despite their past indoctrination in evolution, there are many scientists, probably numbering in the thousands, who now believe in special creation."

These are just the scientist in ONE creation institute. As you can see, they all have great
credintials, and many have published several works.

"Creationism (young earth) will never, ever be accepted by any credible scientist."

Sorry, just had to recap. You are wrong.
