17th century christian bishop invents geology

Something else to smack the YECs with.
Nicolas Steno, A Danish bishop, invented geology some 100 years before Hutton published anything.
Steno, Himself a life long christian, and a bishop of the Catholic Church, irrefutably demonstrated an old earth in the mid 1600s.
Steno demonstrated, and accepted,  that fossils are the remains of animals and plants that died millions of years ago.
He demonstrated , and accepted, that sedimentary rocks form over millions of years, layer by layer, from bottom to top.
YECs of course have long insisted that the idea of an old earth originates with Mr Darwin.

Nicolas Steno... Yet another refutation of the YEC claim that they and they alone represent all christianity.

But he was a Catholic. And as we all know, Catholics aren't "true Christians".

Except when the YECs need to boost their appearant numbers by claiming 2 billion christians as YECs
