Loved the timing of the Westminster Hoax vid. The narrator is calm and methodical and the material very well presented. Thank you for that.

I, for one, can read medication labels just fine, thank you very much. And I, too, believe that God created the world thousands but certainly not millions of years ago. This does not make me a nincompoop as the book's authors ever so 'subtly' imply. Cutting-edge science is also starting to point out that the origin of all species dates back to about the same time, and that time was not more than 100,000 years ago.
