comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
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.

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
@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...

comment Does anyone have a good definition of “Evangelical”?
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?

comment Does any church still provide a pension for widows?
Of course. There are literally thousands, if not more, ministries which provide service to widows, and a great number of them are run by churches. Simply do a Google search for single mother church ministries, and you'll see plenty of evidence.

comment Why is the Bible subject to a high level of interpretation?
@CiscoIPPhone: I disagree. Completely. It's exactly the same as any other communication. So the answer is: The question is based on a false premise.

comment On what side was Jesus' stab wound?
The left side makes sense... since ~90% of the population (presumably including Roman soldiers) are right-handed. A soldier facing Jesus' body would have gripped a spear with his right hand, and thrusted upward; thus to the left. But if he was standing behind Jesus, or was left-handed, then the right side would make sense.

comment Why is the Bible subject to a high level of interpretation?
Everything is subject to 100% interpretation. What does this mean to you: أنا أحبك. How about this: Я люблю тебя.? Or this: Miluji tě.? They mean nothing to you (I'm guessing) because you don't know how to interpret these languages. If I say I love you, you have a much better idea how to interpret it. But even so, it's rather out of context--what do I really mean? 100% of communication is 100% subject to interpretation.

comment How did early “street evangelization” differ from the modern practice?
"street preachers" gathered interested and/or interactive crowds, often followed by mass conversions. -- They still do in many places. Which I think suggests a cultural difference.
