I tried to bite my tongue in this thread… I do not know who these YEC(s) are, so I can only speak for myself. I do not look inside of 2 Peter to see creation verses. The book of Genesis is clearly sufficient for that. Even if as you say, creationists see creation verses in 2 Peter, they are doing it to support the book of Genesis; whereas your camp takes ONE verse and uses to discredit ALL of Genesis. Do we see a dilemma here? The catalyst of this “confusion” being that as it may, is not another solid creation verse nor another account of the creation process, but a source outside of the bible called, “evolution”
I believe in evolution, but evolution does not coincide with the book of Genesis therefore I must jettison any idea that Genesis could be true, so I will look for any obscure verse in scripture-somewhat indirectly pertaining to creation to validate my already beginning presuppositional bias that Genesis is not true.
