My debate with Ruse turns on ID vs. Darwinian naturalism, not YEC.
But since you asked, check out my chapter on YEC, written with John Mark Reynolds, in the volume Three Views on Creation and Evolution (Zondervan, 1999). That's my only published discussion of my YEC position. Reynolds and I were widely excoriated by YECs for what we wrote, e.g., the following:
Natural science at the moment seems to overwhelmingly point to an old cosmos…Recent creationists should humbly agree that their view is, at the moment, implausible on purely scientific grounds. (pp. 49, 51)
Statements like this drive Nick Matzke bonkers, btw, and make him question my sanity, or integrity, or manhood. For that matter, many of the YECs who reviewed the book said that the Reynolds/Nelson chapter was the worst defense of YEC currently in print, and maybe the worst imaginable.
So I'm in the unenviable position of being panned right across the spectrum.
