Ronald Bailey of Reason Magazine isreporting
from the 2005 Creation Mega-Conference
. Bailey does a good job of showing how creationists are good at making their case, no matter how ridiculous their case is. He says that the presentations are "far more slick than the presentations I usually see at scientific conferences."
Also interesting is that you won't find any sympathy for intelligent design here. As a Liberty University professor said, "We believe that Adam and Eve were real people and that God created everything in six 24 hour days."
And here's the young-earth chronology, for those wondering how it all happened:
Creation—six 24-hour days
Lost World—1700 years—no big mountains, no plate tectonics
Flood—370 days—creation of high mountains, deep oceans, sedimentary rocks, plate tectonics form continents
Ice Age—1000 years
Post Ice Age—3000 years and counting.
