Well, the YECers don't appear to have found an mineral desposists at all using their "creation science". Even Andrew Snelling resorted to using the old age of the earth when he was in proper employment.

All this, of course, is despite the cretinists having their own "accredited" university until recently, the Institute for Creation Research. It turns out geologists with masters and PhD degrees.

They don't want too! Creationists basically will not (and can not) test their 'predicitive' models of the Flood. Ask a creationist why, if they are correct, do 'naturalistic' predictive models like sequence stratigraphy still work?
