So this could get interesting
The RATE people are on tour and maybe coming to a church near you. One of my colleagues is throwing out a modest proposal to the RATE crowd. He decided that rather than debate the group during their 'talk', he would invite the speaker to give a seminar at the department (unadvertised) regarding the young earth view. I suggested that since these are geologists, it might be of use to take them to the field for a longer trip and have them explain the local geology in young earth terms. I like this modest proposal and hope to report on the event if the RATE speaker agrees to the private questioning.
