Comment on PUC Professor: The Noachian Flood was just a local flood? by wesley kime.
As evidenced from the above-cited Spectrum article and several posts here, plus a couple of personal encounters of my own, the proclamation, â€œBut Iâ€™m a 6-day Creationist too, you know,â€ has become a suddenly popular device among some of our unabashedly long-chronology but not-quite-out-of-the-closet, at least in print, theistic Evo professors. Two of my best friends, PhDs in non-science, pulled it on me, in one month. The trick is to deploy it as a parting shot, so you donâ€™t have the wit or time to determine whether those â€œdaysâ€ are allegorical or literal. One friend hit me with it from the open window of his car as he was about to drive away. The other hit came along with a thank-you for my picking up the check for lunch. And say it amiably, pleasantly, disarmingly, whimsically.

PUC Professor: The Noachian Flood was just a local flood?
Ever so often the essentially passive reader of all this just has to stop and shake his head and sigh for the lonesome gladiator bearing up — pretty intrepidly, I’d say — against the unremitting lambasting, regardless of the thread topic, from all sides: from the faithful for stooping to use scientific evidence as well as faith; from the doubting for calling any evidence for Creation scientific rather then faith. Carry on, my friend.

Dr. Walter Veith and the anti-vaccine arguments of Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche
Informative and stimulating, but proceeding into more confusion. A veteran of Moderna vaccinations, I trust, hope, they are effective, at least until otherwise. The whole business, being part of End Times, is in the hands of God, not humans expert and as degreed as they may be.
Brilliant and Beautiful, but Wrong
Brilliant, beautiful, and so right! Speaking of your presentation at LLU recently. Great to see you and your family (especially my namesake, Wes. God bless! WK
Evolution from Space?
Hats off yet again to Sean for pursuing this topic as a scientist should, no nonsense, and in it’s proper setting — as a revival of one of the ancient ideas recently upgraded as a desperate alternative to the increasingly compelling intelligent design data. I had occasion to review panspermia a few years ago and as is my wont I found it more amusing than scientific. If you would like what was intended to be a satirical response to panspermia and other related curiosities you could check out: http://www.iessaythere.com/black-hole-humor.html
Meantime, Sean’s article is of far more cogent worth.
The Sabbath and the Covenants (Old vs. New)
As he has done on this site many times, Sean in his line-by-line-item response to C. White (not EG or EB) has, to my mind, clearly enunciated the issue and resolution.
When all the hermeneutics, quoting, and arguing and inordinately judgmental riposte are over, it comes down, as I understand it, to two things: 1) Whether the 7th day Sabbath (whether enunciated in the famous 10 commandments or otherwise) is still valid, and 2) Does the grace obtained by the vicarious sacrifice by the shedding of Christ’s blood or other divine process too deep for us to understand in this life, cover every sin automatically and without ado, altogether passively on our part, or is it only on condition that we first totally and deeply accept it? Other details always hassled forever are distractions.
I accept that I must accept it, wholly, actively, even with agony, with my whole being.
