This question seems easy to answer on the face of it, but turns out not to be so. Are we talking Christian Young Earth Creationists? Muslim YEC's? I imagine there are probably Jewish YEC's out there somewhere. How about from other traditions? I've not come across any as yet, but I'd almost be willing to bet that you could find, if you looked, hardcore adherents to various Australian Aboriginal creationist viewpoints (although they quite possibly wouldn't classify as "YEC" given that we're talking about people and culture that go back 40-60 thousand years, and whilst the factor of ten is in there, that's really fuck-all considering the actual age of the planet at 4.6 billion years - it's still youngish). Or how about Hindus? They've got a rip-snorter of a tale, been around (and modified) for quite some time too, but includes longer timescales for creation and other magic bullshit than the Christians allow. Dramatically longer. Yet still pig ignorant.

I'm curtailing this now, in the hopes of not killing the thread. Seems every time I post an essay people run the fuck away. In future I'll restrict myself to a couple of lines of snark.

I've calculated your chance of survival, but I don't think you'll like it.

No, sorry to burst your happy thought, that was Dinosaur Adventure Land (operated by Kent Hovind). I was similarly confused the last time it came up.

Please tell me that's a piss take?

The Ark was supposedly 135 meters long (300 cubits), 22.5 meters wide (50 cubits), and 13.5 meters high (30 cubits), How do they propose that they were able to fit even one dinosaur?

It is . . . but a good one hey?

Haven't you been told about how shrewd ol' Noah only took eggs onto the ark?

Actually, there is a rather notorious creationist out there who actually posted on the Dawkins forums (lest we forget) that Polar Bears are white because they were scared of humans! I'll dig that one out for you as well.

There are some real intellectual squirt-worms out there . . .

Ta it explains a lot about queenslanders
As to the polar bears, I'm not sure how you would reason with someone that stupid. They aren't that scared of humans to avoid killing them and eating them
