Re: Yabba, Dabba, Doo…

My yesterday post about the Creation Museum drew the following correction:

Derb—your post about Ken Ham’s creationist museum misrepresented the position of young-earth creationists. You may think this a quibble, but young-earth creationists will range anywhere from Bishop Ussher’s date to around 25,000 years ago that I’ve heard bandied about among Seventh Day Adventists. I’ve known quite a few young-earth creationists, and I don’t think any are on board with the Ussher chronology.  Cordially, [Name]

I appreciate that “Cordially,” Sir.  This is not a topic in which cordiality is very prominent.  And 25,000 years instead of 6,000?  Well, that makes MUCH more sense!
