Where is the Next Generation of Creation Scientists?

Poor creationists. They don’t seem very good at reproducing themselves

Nevertheless, oddly, even the last remark in this work “Very little has [?] during the intervening years.” introduced a new one (i.e., the [?]).

      One thing he should also fix in the main text is
      But what happens when all that really exists are flourishes of rhetoric _with_ include appeals to the products of a past generation of creation scientists for legitimacy?
