Buff, back at you, Todd!?
- Here's an excerpt of what Buff wrote to the BereanSpirit list. Since he
said it was going to be sent to other lists as well, I figure he won't
mind me posting the relevant excerpts on my little list as well as on
BereanSpirit for emphasis. The comments were in the context of other
matters related to how some show up on lists to promote their own
"agendas" and contrary views. Here are the excerpts from Buff, the

Todd S. Greene, I just gotta wonder if Buff wasn't making specific
reference to Todd in his comments.
I thought it was Todd that had made the point that it was Buff pushing
the "baseless rhetoric" regarding the real science behind the Grand
If I got it right, Buff agrees with Todd that the bible says nothing
about the Grand Canyon and is all for the prospect that God could have,
and maybe did, make the Grand Canyon with all the scientific indications
of the ancient age Todd says the evidence shows.
So, Buff has no beef with the scientific evidence of a great age
(significantly older than 10,000 years) for the Grand Canyon. He just
thinks the evidence is fake and that God has told him so.
In any case, having lost his argument for the Grand Canyon being formed
by a flood a few thousand years ago, Buff's default position is to admit
the scientific evidence of its great age. That evidence, in Buff's
default position, is that the evidence of a great age is just as God
really intended (and Buff should probably have never tried to pull that
"young-earth, creation-science" ploy, denying the evidence of a great
age that God laid down).
Or, maybe Buff really hasn't decided which way to go with that age
business. Maybe he just rides the fence and argues all the sides
depending on how much hot water he's in with a particular discussion.
Maybe he will clarify his position if I've got his position wrong.
