      Subject: Sunderland agrees with Patterson about the Flood!

      Patterson:

      > > a world-wide flood (Noah's)...

      | Luther Sunderland, New York's leading creationist, wants
      | his colleagues to be careful when discussing the subject
      | of origins in educational and scientific circles. Among
      | his warnings is this most interesting item ? "Do not talk
      | about a flood because there is no way a single world flood
      | can be derived from scientific evidence alone. Talk about
      | global catastrophes."

      (P. 185, Scopes II: the Great Debate
      by Louisiana State Senator Bill Keith)
      http://ncseweb.org/cej/4/3/advice-from-luther-sunderland-to-his-fellow-creationists

      (For those who don't know, Bill Keith was the sponsor of
      the bill to get creation science into Louisiana public
      schools, which led to the Edwards vs. Aguillard case.)

      This explains why you so often see creationists trying to
      pawn off the false dichotomy of Uniformitarianism vs.
      Catastrophism and pretending that modern geologists are
      not very well aware that catastrophes can and do show
      up in the geologic record.
