comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
Yet this is not the case. Creation Science theories are not accepted, even by a small minority of non-Christians. What explains this discrepancy, if indeed Creation Science is, as its proponents claim, valid science?

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
There are many secular or non-Christian religious scholars who regard the Bible as historical, to varying degrees. And there are many Christians who believe the Bible is reconcilable with science (far more than there are Creationists, by the way). My point is: Creation Science proponents claim to present scientific theories, which reconcile a young earth with scientific observation. If these theories held water (as any other minority scientific theory in history), then these theories should stand on their own, and would be recognized, perhaps quite slowly, by non-Christians as valid...

comment How do Mormon missionaries learn foreign languages so quickly?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about language learning and not about Christianity.

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
Of course I want an answer. What makes you think I don't? I could ask the same question of Dianetics then, but this isn't scientology.SE. If the answer is "CS only makes sense within a narrowly-defined Christian world view" then I guess that's the answer, but that answer is also admitting, then, that the theory is neither scientific nor historical, since both science and history make sense outside of a Christian worldview. I would assume, and hope that a creationist would have a better answer than this.

comment If flesh & blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God how did the Lord Jesus show His “hands and feet” after the resurrection?
I think you need to start by asking "What does it mean that blood and flesh cannot inherit the Kingdom of God".

I mean that nobody looks objectively at the facts, and comes to the conclusion that the creation science theories stand on their own. The only people who believe creation science makes any sense are those who are pre-disposed to want to believe it.

No, that's not what I asked. Read the question again. I asked how proponents of "creation science" explain the lack of non-Christian buy-in.

They are related, but that doesn't make this question the least bit related to ID. I don't have any problems with ID. I have some serious problems with CS. This would be why I'm asking this question.

@curiousdannii: So you're agreeing with me that they are different, right?

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
No, I didn't ask that. I asked how they explain this blaring lack of non-partisan support for their theory.

@MatthewMoisen: They clearly are not at all the same. "Creation science" is one, fairly narrow interpretation of Intelligent Design. Some obvious differences: ID came well after CS. CS denies evolution, ID does not.

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
Okay, but this doesn't address the question. If this "historical science" holds any water, why do only people with a pre-conceived agenda think it makes any sense? If it's a good theory (scientifically, historically, or otherwise), one would expect that at least one atheist or other non-Christian would see it as valid on its own merits. Why isn't that the case? You haven't addressed this point.

comment What is meant by a new heaven and new earth?
Well, not necessarily their denomination, but the denomination from which they want an answer. But more generally, the question shows a huge lack of understanding. A much better question, IMO, would be "What is meant by a new heaven and new earth?" The question is worded as a trap... not as an opportunity to learn.

comment What is meant by a new heaven and new earth?
What makes you think that "The new heaven and the new earth" are literal? What makes you think they are different than heaven?

I have seen that, but intelligent design is quite a separate issue from "creation science."

comment Does anyone have a good definition of “Evangelical”?
The term is quite broad, making a "specific" definition quite difficult. So I'm still not sure what else you're hoping for...

So that doesn't answer my question: What are you looking for that google and Wikipedia don't provide?

comment Does anyone have a good definition of “Evangelical”?
The wiki tag you added to the question has a definition, along with a link to Wikipedia which provides much more detail. What else are you hoping for?

comment Does anyone have a good definition of “Evangelical”?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is easily answered by google and/or wikipedia.

comment Does any church still provide a pension for widows?
Many churches offer services to widows of all ages, as well as any other type of person in need. I would be surprised to find some church ministry that only offers services to widows over 60 years old. That would be a pretty heartless ministry, wouldn't you say?
