Agreed. From my perspective, accommodation has the group think view that not only is the Bible not to be considered scientifically correct, it couldn’t ever be done anyway. Why did they believe this? Because they never tried to solve any of these problems.
When I was 19 years old, I read a book on Creation evolution by A. E. Wilder-Smith. I saw problems in his book but was convinced theologically that Genesis needs to be viewed scientifically and historically. I told my roommate, Wayne Sparkman, that I was going to solve this problem. And over the next 50 years (yeah, it has been that long), I worked on these issues most of my off time, reading books on geology, biology, anthropology, physics, philosophy, math, general relativity, quantum and collected a personal library with 4000 volumes of scientific books, and probably 10,000 xeroxes of articles from various topics. (sadly its gone now, with my health problems it was time to get rid of it).
I became a YEC and my first paper eventually caused yec leaders to drop the vapor canopy. I used atmospheric radiation theory to show that such a canopy would heat the earth up to 1000 degrees or so. Another paper showed that the sedimentary distributions are wrong for a global flood. All of these were published in the Creation Research Society Quarterly, then about 1984 I seriously began to doubt that YEC was the answer, and CRSQ had chosen an editor to stop me from getting papers published. After that guy became editor not a single other paper was accepted.
So I spent the next 6 years away from publishing and learning programming and general relativity. Then in the 1990s, I conceived of my view of the flood (the time of it is supported by genetics), and then wrote two books and published lots in the Perspectives on Science and Christian faith. I always argued for literal interpretations but as you can imagine the reception to my articles was not good, but they did have an openminded editor at that time. That eventually changed. And around 2010 I was kicked out of the ASA because I asked questions they didn’t want to answer. They actually shut down their forum like this because of me and turned it into a stodgy peer reviewed boring set of approved papers. No different ideas were allowed there.
So, what I have posted above is the result of my life’s work. Now that I have only a couple of years left, (hopefully). I think I can tell my roommate, I did it.
But I am not stupid enough to think that people will like what I have presented above. Sadly I have become convinced that too many Christians in Science are far too comfortable with a false Bible, because their colleagues at work would think they are nuts if they said Genesis was real. I lost one job because of my views, so I know the threat—But God honored me by giving me opportunities in my career that I would never have had at that old company. I lived on 3 continents, went to 34 countries, manager for 18 years, went to Antarctica, Tibet (on business). God was very good to me and still is as my health is failing and I have trouble walking now. Life is to be lived and enjoyed.
