      I just ran across the information on the GraceCentered message boards indicating Buff Scott, Jr. recently became a member (having now posted 6 messages; I only saw one).

      So, I thought to add a note to the Apologetics forum there and wrote:

      I just happen to have noticed that Buff Scott, Jr., the alleged reformer has recently joined this message board and has already posted 6 notes (I only saw one).

      Some may recall an unresolved little controversy regarding Buff Scott, Jr. and claims he made (false and/or misleading) regarding a certain government employee-scientist.

      Following is the link to Buff's site and relevant excerpts:

      Mount St. Helens vs. The Grand Canyon

      Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980. Some years later, a monument scientist examined the hardrock canyon, created by the eruption, and remarked:

      > ���You���d expect a hardrock
      > canyon to be thousands,
      > even hundreds of thousands
      > of years old. But this one
      > was cut in less than a decade.���
      > (National Geographic, May, 2000).

      Rick Presley, a knowledgeable student of geology, says,

      > ���Pretty convincing evidence that
      > the Grand Canyon didn���t take
      > millions of years to form..."

      > Those of you who believe the
      > Grand Canyon was formed over
      > a period of millions of years
      > should re-examine your evidence
      > by examining the canyon formed
      > by the eruption of Mount St. Helens.

      My further comments:

      The controversy concerns Buff's attempt to quote the National Geographic and the above use that Buff made of his failed attempt at quoting the guy accurately.

      Some with ready access to the National Geographic in question might want to check it out and see if you don't see what so many preachers have warned us about for so many years, and is evident in Buff's attempt to quote.

      I've spoken personally to the guy that Buff tried to quote, and he was not too happy with the way Buff has tried to represent him and what he said.

      Maybe if Buff makes his way over here he will tell us more about that matter from his perspective.

      He's certainly had quite a few months, and many warnings now, to change his website; but he would not!
