the CFTF discussion of Dr. Bert's "Rock 'n Reel" claim, as introduced by
Jason Fox, is shaping up to be quite another good example of what is
wrong with the wrong-headed "young-earth, creation-science" movement.
Our Rick responded to Jason's request for input from "old-earthers" by
referencing Joe Meert's work on the issue.
Rather than address the facts of the case and deal with Dr. Bert's
claims, Jason has been insisting on picking on me as if I had anything
to do with Dr. Bert's bogus "Rock 'n Reel" claims.
Here's the link and some excerpts from Jason's latest evasions:

making sound asessments, then goes on to say he believes the "Rock 'n
Reel" story as proposed by Dr. Bert!
Maybe some one will be able to get Jason to explain just how that could
be the case.
His claims are inconsistent with his conclusion.
As far as my own claims are concerned, I think anyone capable of
evaluating and reasoning through the evidence and making sound
assessments can go back through the extensive record regarding my
encounters with such folk as Jason Fox and find that I am the one that
comes out most credible.
Could it be they just don't like me? They just can't stand the fact
that I could be right and that they and their YEC heroes really do make
ridiculous blunders and refuse to admit to it?
Reminds me of how many refused to believe that Dr. Bert's Maury statue
really didn't exist; who was I to point out such a blunder and how could
Dr. Bert be wrong? By the way, just were did Dr. Bert get his Maury
Rick, I wish you well with the CFTF discussion of the "Rock 'n Reel"
issue. It will be interesting to see if they allow you to post freely
on the issue.
