Re: Invitation to the CRSQ!
- As a reminder, I am posting the previous official response from Don
DeYoung, President of the Creation Research Society, following my
name below. It should be considered in conjunction with the previous
series of exchanges between me and Eugene Chaffin, Ph.D., editor of
the Creation Research Society Quarterly.
From my perspective, it is most unfortunate that the President
DeYoung failed to provide the specifics of his research results and
then claimed that I needed their help in writing a letter and that
I "requested in writing" that it be published. That's not what the
record reveals to me!
It does make you wonder. These days when the public is more and more
clamoring for "transparency" concerning the activities of tax-exempt
organizations (can anyone say "Catholic Priest"), folks like the
Creation Research Society and Apologetics Press seem all the more
determined to keep their secrets.
Now, I am just wondering if anyone (I've tried) is going to be able
to get Bert Thompson, Ph.D., operator of Apologetics Press
(http://www.apologeticspress.org) to admit his error and retract the
published reports wherein he has been declaring that letter to be
my "feeble effort".

I have researched your demand for an official disclaimer from the CRS
regarding your letter published in the CRSQ (June 1996, p. 22). You
signed this letter and also requested in writing that the CRS publish
I realize that our help was needed in preparing this letter, but the
letter is yours whether or not you crafted the words.
If you wish to appeal further, please contact me again. Do not harass
our volunteer workers Glen Wolfrom or Eugene Chaffin. I will request
that they delete any related emails from you. My advice, given in
full respect for your concerns, is that you give closure to this
