I agree. I edited it out of the question. I believe it will be automatically cleaned up, eventually, if it isn't used.


My first reaction to this was: we should use tags to help people to deliberately search for questions that interest them and to have serendipitous discoveries of other related questions. I have used the joseph-mercola tag, when I had vague memories that Mercola had made a similar claim. So, I didn't like your idea. But, as I tried to marshall my argument, ...

I think not: a claim that the Earth is young is (by definition) young-earth-creationism. People who believe that the Earth is young are young Earth creationists, not matter whether they are part of any official movement. Same for intelligent design, it's a subject of claims, not a movement.
