God Creates Man 10,000 Years Ago: Women File Complaint

Another letter to the editor about creationism appeared in today's Johnson City Press. This letter was in response to that great letter a couple of weeks ago by Amy Wilson. Here is today's letter:

Science of creationism
I am writing in response to Amy Wilson’s letter in the Feb. 29 issue of the Johnson City Press.
I believe the creation position is that God created man in his present form at one time within the last 10,000 years.

And if she can do that maybe she will take Dr. Walt Brown up on his offer for a written, publishable debate on the creation-evolution issue, as described on pages 296-298 in his book “In the Beginning,” compelling evidence for creation and the flood.
However, the debate must be restricted to science and avoid religion. The offer is also found on his Web site:
