In our current series on science and religion I am planning an upcoming post discussing some of the young earth creationist scientific arguments for an young earth. Rather than just picking a couple by random, I am hoping to involve the readers and solicit some. I won’t be responding to these for some time (probably at least 1 month), but this will give you time to find your choice of arguments. I also cannot claim to be a expert in all areas of science, so I may have some prejudice towards things astronomical (or possibly geological). Please submit detailed arguments as opposed to vague remembrances of something you heard once. The ideal submission would include a link to a detailed online scientific article. Finally, I will respond to some percentage of these, but what that percentage is will depend on how many responses I get.
Addendum: Given the incoming comments, a clarification is in order. In my attempt to be evenhanded, apparently I came across as endorsing a young earth view. This is not the case. For a disclosure of my views on the subject see my recent post A Creation Story.
