Glenn doesn't answer the last letter, instead a subject change -
Thanks for the mail about comets.
Just before I comment, one more point re. Noah’s Flood.
Many cultures all over the world retain a memory of an ancient flood. Several Nth American tribes have global flood stories. In Hawaii there is a legend of a great flood and great canoe and all died not on the canoe. Ancient Chinese writings refer to a catastrophe and flood the covered the highest mountains. The Indians of Mexico have a similar story. The Australian aboriginals have another and the epic of Gilgamish has another ancient story. There are hundreds of similar flood stories. This also supports the bible’s account. So if you take Gen.1-3 literal why not ch.6-9?
You say, “your YEC leaders never tell you this”. But they have -
“Each year a number of new comets are discovered (recently this has been about two dozen per year). Most of these comets are relatively faint, but occasionally a brighter one is found. Two recent bright comets were Hyakutake in 1996 and Hale-Bopp in 1997. These two comets were the brightest ones seen in 20 years….” D.R. Faulkner Prof. of Astronomy (BS Math), MS Physics), MA & PhD Astronomy, Indiana Univ.). Prof. Univ. Sth Carolina — Lancaster, teaches physics & astronomy).
Look at the table chart you sent. There's no so-called increase until around 1997-98. Note those dates. There is no conspiracy, why would you expect biblical creationists (in particular) to refer to an increase but no one else? How can there possibly be ANY “earlier statement” by ANY one?
The date of Faulkner’s article is Dec. 1997. Not only on the internet, but in a Journal Vol.11 (part3) print no. ISSN 1036-2916. You said “YEC leaders never tell you this”. Nonsense, it's there for all to read, in print and on the web. You said, “you guys don’t care about the truth. You love darkness”. A foolish comment, why not reserve judgment till you have all the facts.
I could also say if you “had the slightest amount of curiosity you could find out things like this” yourself. Your problem Glenn is you don’t let the facts get in the way of your own animosity.
You stress the idea of hundreds comets per-year, but experts don't. You ignore the fact more people are looking and reporting. When one is seen, its reported. You count “198 in this list”. eg

At the website they are reported “astrometric observations”, shown by "dates", designation and "name”. The name is the last word. Looks like you counted the same comet(s) many times over. Some counted up to 10-30 times. Is this the way you do science?
Are you trying to prove the existence of an 'Oord cloud'? It won’t be found because it was always just an idea. Even if found, it wouldn’t prove an old age but comets don’t last long and are replaced. But there is no cloud and in an old-age solar system there should be no comets left. So "It is concluded that the existence of comets is still a valid argument for a recent creation of the Solar System" (Faulkner). No new comets are being made but some observed for the first time. But the point is, given the observed rate of loss and maximum periods they could not have been orbiting the sun for billions of years. As they past the sun they break up, not a false “claim” but a proven fact.
I really feel that you are wasting my time with claims like --there is no increase around 1997 or 1998. There is. It is in the chart and why you deny it I don't know. Here is the picture again,. The most charitable thing I can say is that you didn't even bother to open the attachment.
Yes, I know the data of Faulkners article......
The rest of Glenn's reply is deleted. He is dishonest. For this reason I terminated correspondence -
I have finished writing to you Glenn for this reason. You are either dishonest, or a phony.
It was dishonest to email that "new comet chart" claiming there were "up to 140 new" comets "found every year". Its not true.
It was dishonest to send those stats. Claiming they were "discovered in the past year" and "count 198". That wasn't true either, you counted the same comets repeatedly.
You are dishonest again -
What did I say.................."There is no so-called increase until around 1997-98."
What did you quote me......"there is no increase around 1997 or 1998."
A deliberate misquote by changing my words. You didn't know the data of Faulkner's article, now you do, but ignore it. There's just too much deliberate dishonesty Glenn.
