I must say that you wrote an excellent book when you wrote about the Gap Theory. I agree with this theory of biblical creationism. We live on an Old Earth; however, we were not made by evolution and are no relation to the ancient life forms found in the fossils. You are truly a scholar and Marshall University, founded by the Virginia Legislature before the Civil War, should be proud of you.
I wish to say one other thing. Those who are non-Christians should not be rude to our host. Be polite and express a respectable opinion. I am an educated Methodist Christian and proud of it. One day I will be absent from the body and present with the Lord (II Corinthians 5:6-8). I would advise non-Christians to reconsider their opinions. One day it will be too late!
