While I try to loose myself from general busyness, here is a sensible article from an always sensible writer (Lynda O.) about a conversation between a young-earther and an old-earther. In this case the dialogue is between, if I read it correctly, two dispensatiuonalists.
One of the maddening things about some dispensationalists is how they can be so inconsistent with their hermeneutics while promoting a normal reading of the Bible. As anyone knows who isn’t plain crooked, a normal reading of Genesis 1 reveals a six 24 hour day creation week capped by a seventh day (cf. Exod. 20:11). But too many dispies back off from the plain sense at this crucial juncture:
Note: although I am a strong advocate of Young Earth Creationism; believing it to be a clear teaching of the Bible and that the Old Earth position is advocated because believers do not have both eyes on Scripture, I want to say that I do not see OEC as a heresy. I do, however, think any theistic evolutionism is heresy.
