The problem arose, however, not because YEC beliefs were mentioned (though that was too much for some) but because the Trust did more than nod to the existence of YEC beliefs when it stated: “This debate continues today for some people, who have an understanding of the formation of the earth which is different from that of current mainstream science.”
The weasel words here are ‘current mainstream’. Without those words, the statement is unexceptionable. With them, the YECs attain everything they scheme for – namely, a clear implication that there exists a form of ‘science’ that supports the ridiculous idea that the world is only 6000 years old. To sow doubt where there is none is all they want.
