Re: [RTB Discussion Group] YEs don't know good scholarship if it hit them on th head......

"While I agree with your assessment of AIG, ... "
Oh, that means a lot coming from someone influenced, by his own
admission, by the Christadelphian heretic Alan Hayward. As well as
turning a blind eye to Jerikane's inflammatory rhetoric which is
STILL yet to provide any criticism of substance except to give his
own subjective opinions.
Kyle: "I would also like to make a point in their favor. AIG and ICR,
more so than any other YEC organization, has shown a willingness to
publish pieces that refute claims that they had once made if and when
new information came to light."
At least Kyle, unlike VR, Nutty and Jerikane, is willing to see
something good about AiG. Just a pity that he doesn't seem quite so
willing to demand that Ross and Hayward retract their many errors, as
have been amply documented on this site.
Kyle: "Furthermore, of the YECers present on this list, Danny
Faulkner has been the most prominant voice of reason."
And Danny has spoken at two major AiG conferences, is a regular
contributor to their TJ, and was interviewed in Creation magazine

complete agreement with the RTB statement of faith. That is not to
say that I have not had points of disagreement with Hugh Ross or
other OECers, but, when dealing with OEC leadership [not only with
RTB, but other leaders in the field of OEC] those areas have been
fairly minor for the most part.
