YEC fraudulence

As a scientist, I am saddened by the quackery of the bombastic young-earth creationist (YEC) variety seen at Answers in Genesis. But more, as a Bible-loving Christian, I am angered by their Bible-abusing enforcement of so-called "literal", so-called "plain-reading" onto Genesis 1-11.

The limerick below was a direct reaction against one of their many preposterous tweets on an AiG Twitter feed; this one had falsely claimed (i.e. lied in the name of Jesus the Truth) that their science-quackery (fraudulently labelled as "research") was supposedly "peer-reviewed".

    Creationist 'Answers in Genesis'
    is clueless about real sciences.
        But anti-biblically worse
        is their chapter-and-verse
    eisegesis, harbinger of heresies.

An authoritative association of the concept of "heresy" with "young-earth creationism" is given by Prof. Tom McLeish, FRS, a world-leading fluid physicist at one of the UK's leading research universities (Durham) and lay preacher in the Church of England. See p. 240-241 of Faith and Wisdom in Science (Oxford University Press) and, more resolutely, p.35 of his science lecture in York Minster.
