G'day John. As an Australian - and therefore a natural user of British spelling - I used to have a problem occasionally on CP. However during 2007 and 2008 it got sorted out (sorta) aided by the fact that one of the sysops at that time was Australian. He had the habit of reverting the American spelling back to his own with the comment: reverting your correct spelling to my correct spelling.

Obviously don't write about Pearl Harbour or American labour laws. By the same token you are allowed to jump on Sydney Harbor or NZ Labor Day from a great height.

By the way.....the "g'day" was not an affectation. It's my natural speech. My father had his law practice in George St. 2 minutes walk from Wynyard Station but he still said "cobber" and "mate" and "fair dinkum". I don't think he ever said "chicken" in his life but he loved a roast chook.

Go the Tahs!

Hi Alan! Thanks for your message and interestingly enough I'm about to have a chook for supper tonight myself. I left Sydney when I was 10 so have become a bit more accustomed to NZ habits over AUS - for example I am fully converted to Marmite over Vegemite! As for the Tah's - I'm a cricket man myself. The World Cup had me torn in loyalty. JohnSelway 02:33, 27 June 2015 (EDT)

These are good times for the cricket loving Kiwi. It's a bloody good team. Go with that. AlanE 03:02, 27 June 2015 (EDT)

Yeah but I'm more for the Aussies so the final result was pleasing to me. JohnSelway 19:07, 28 June 2015 (EDT)

Thanks. Your input made the article stronger

Thanks for offering your feedback to the atheism and poetry article.

As a result of your input, I added some material which made the article stronger.

Here is what I added:

In addition, the online book seller Amazon offers many books of Christian poetry as well as anthologies of Christian poetry (as of 11/30/2015 there were 61,064 search results for term "Christian poetry" at Amazon as far as soft cover and hard cover books being offered for sale to American consumers).[4] On the other hand, the selection being offered at Amazon for atheist poetry was very limited (as of 11/30/2015 there were 123 search results for term "atheist poetry" at Amazon as far as soft cover and hard cover books being offered for sale to to American consumers and a great many of the books were not even books of atheist poetry).[5]

Again, you offered some great and constructive input. And I appreciate it. Conservative (talk) 09:00, 30 November 2015 (EST)

No worries Conservative, glad I could be of some help. JohnSelway (talk) 18:32, 1 December 2015 (EST)

John Selway: Specific young earth arguments as far as the Gulf of Mexico

"As suggested above, water in rivers moves a lot of dirt and ground-up rock (sediment) down to the sea. When the river water reaches the ocean, it slows down and drops its sediment to the ocean floor. If this happens for hundreds and thousands of years, a delta is built up where the river enters the ocean. This is a fan-shaped projection of land that builds out farther and farther into the ocean. What would happen if this process went on for millions of years? In the case of the Mississippi River (Figure 1), calculations indicate that its delta would have filled the Gulf of Mexico in ten million years. Other smaller rivers that also drain into the Gulf of Mexico would shorten that time. Since the Mississippi Delta now fills in only a small part of the Gulf of Mexico, it is obvious that the river has not been flowing into the gulf for many millions of years."[1]

I hope these are helpful.Conservative (talk) 09:47, 29 March 2019 (EDT)

I just found this very relevant and recent article: More Whopper Sand Evidence of Global Flood by BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | TUESDAY, AUGUST 07, 2018Conservative (talk) 10:03, 29 March 2019 (EDT)
Here is what the evolutionists from National Geographic recently said about the Gulf of Mexico: "Scientists think the salt probably accumulated around the time when Africa was just starting to separate from the Americas around 200 million years ago." (Bolding added for emphasis)[2]
"Probably". The truth is that they have no idea because old earth geology is a mass of contradictions and fits the current data poorly.
If you want strong and compelling evidence for the biblical worldview, look at some of the articles on this webpage: Christian apologetics websites. I collected some of the best articles related to defending the biblical worldview.Conservative (talk) 10:13, 29 March 2019 (EDT)
I don’t find the YEC position convincing. Not for lack of reading about it but because what I’ve read (a fair bit I might add) I don’t persusive. JohnSelway (talk) 19:42, 29 March 2019 (EDT)

John: I've been following this discussion; I find it fascinating. Remember: Any time someone cites a religious text or website in a discussion of a purely scientific topic, they have automatically lost whatever argument they were trying to make. I count 6 such websites above, along with an aggregation page listing dozens more, from someone who does a lot of this. SamHB (talk) 20:08, 29 March 2019 (EDT)

I just can’t square away how a YEC deals with meteor strikes. Some of the craters are huge and would have caused disasters. Are we supposed believe there were190 strikes in a 4000 yr period and no one noticed? JohnSelway (talk) 20:14, 29 March 2019 (EDT)
