Comment on Common Arguments Against a 7-Day Creation Week by Bob Helm.

Sean, I very much appreciate your well-reasoned and kind defense of young life creationism. For those who are opened-minded, there is a plethora of scientific evidence in favor of this position. I also appreciate what you said about Ellen White. I do not believe that we should regard everything she said or wrote as infallible. In fact, it is clear that she sometimes changed her mind on issues and grew in her understanding. However, when it comes to her belief in and promotion of a literal creation week, she makes it very clear that this was not merely her opinion, nor did she derive it from her contemporaries or from the other Christian authors she read and quoted in her books. This was something that she plainly saw in vision. And since her position on this matter is also affirmed by careful exegesis of scripture and has been the historic position of the Christian Church, it seems to me that the contrary argument is not directed against Ellen White or any other human being. It is directed against God.

@Carlos: Far from being outdated, I would say that Sean’s arguments are cutting edge. As for the assertion that scientists don’t use Darwin’s model for evolution, that is correct – because Darwin had no knowledge of Mendelian genetics. The original Darwinian model was replaced by the Neo-darwinian Synthesis about 1940, which claims that evolution takes place as natural selection acts on random mutations. Although this model still dominates biology today, it is facing increasingly serious problems, which Sean has touched on.

@Sean Pitman: OK, I see it now. Sorry – I missed it earlier.

Complex Organisms are Degenerating – Rapidly
Sean, Dr. John Sanford, who was an important contributor to the development of GMOs, has written a book on this issue entitled, “Genetic Entropy.” I don’t see him quoted anywhere in your article, and I’m wondering if you are familiar with his work. It is noteworthy that Dr. Sanford has abandoned Darwinism and adopted creationism/intelligent design, not originally for religious reasons, but because of this problem.

Sean, once again I urge you to publish your material in book form, preferably with a non-Adventist publisher. You have such wonderful material, but the Educate Truth audience is so small.
