How to make the Bible compatible with special creationism - 2

As I've pointed out many times, no special creationist really reads Genesis 1 literally, partly because such a literal reading fundamentally contradicts Genesis 2, partly because in order to make it harmonise with what even YECs acknowledge to be true about the natural world, they read int the narrative modern science. As Science and Scripture points out in this second part of their series on making the Bible compatible with special creationism, the considerable time delay of 105 years between the Genesis command to be fruitful and multiply, and the birth of Seth alone is enough to show the degree of massaging, twisting, and re-interpretation that goes on in YEC interpretation.
