Also, the behavior of the 'reply' button often includes quoting the post you are replying to so you don't have to copy and paste everything.
Right. But then people tend to quote far too much. It is better to quote just a minimal amount to establish context. And that seems to work out well. Also the forward and backward links tie replies to earlier message, so often quoting isn't actually needed.
I do think this is some of the best forum software, in terms of usability. But don't tell Percy -- we don't want to over-inflate his ego.

Re: Lammerts Bristlecone experiments
Practically every single creation site/article that I read on dating refers to a 'study' by Walter Lammerts purportedly showing that the White Mountain Bristlecones can be induced into multiple rings per year through application of short bits of drought and rain. I'm the type to track down and read reports because ... well because I'm not Hovind nor Ham.
I would be far more impressed if the creationists would come up with a long list of oil companies that are highly profitable due to using YEC geology in their search for oil deposits.

Re: Uniformitarianism
Uniformitarianism is a word thrown about by both sides of the EvC debate and I'm trying to understand it.
If uniformitarianism fails, then you cannot rely on tracing things back through time.
So the whole creationist story crumbles, because it depends on tracing back through time and genealogies.
Creationism itself depends on uniformitarianism.
