Re: Creation scientists

That is apparently the YE creationist position.  But it wasn't Augustine's position. He merely pointed out that where there is uncertainty in the meaning of scripture, one should be willing to revise one's opinion when new information is found.

Seems clear to me.  If something in scripture is not unequivocally clear, we should keep an open mind on it.

Perhaps it would start with the humility to realize that one can be wrong.   I do notice that that there is almost no debate among Christians as to the essential doctrines of our faith.  Maybe that's something you should consider.

It says that if you make an idol of your personal interpretations of scripture, you may later regret it.   Listen to him on that.

Nothing can be unequivocally clear to someone who simply chooses not believe that which is plainly and conclusively stated, as you make obvious. So Peter, whom your faith proclaims was the first Pope, was wrong? Is that correct?
