On Appearance With An Appearance Of Age
Frank L. Marsh, Ph.D.
Creationists have sometimes
hesitated to maintain the doctrine of creation with apparent age, fearing
that to do so might seem to be to hold that God has deceived men. But
there is no deceit, since God has stated the truth plainly in revelation.
Besides, it would be impossible for anything to have been created at
all without features which could be taken as indications of age.
A Diluvian Interpretation
Of Ancient Cyclic Sedimentation
John Woodmorrappe, B.A.
The earth's water-laid rocks
contain a repetitive type of stratigraphic layering known as cyclothems.
Uniformitarian geologists have long debated the processes which formed
them; but every theory proposed has failed to explain many basic properties.
In fact, uniformitarianism,
which is not a scientific law or principle, has fostered an unnatural
interpretation of cyclothemic rocks. Numerous properties of cyclothems
are explained far more fully and simply in terms of catastrophic sedimentation.
These properties include their world-wide distribution and "age"-transcendence,
the shallowness of deposition, vertical gradation, and evidence of them
in contemporaneous tectonism. A detailed account is presented of the
genetic relation between cyclothemic sedimentational and stratigraphic
properties and the recessional phases of Noah's Flood.
Using The Second Law More
D. Russell Humphreys,
Creationists could make
more effective use of the second law of thermodynamics by pointing out
three facts: (a) The second law applies as rigorously to open systems
as it does to closed ones. (b) Solar energy increases entropy on the
earth, which is not what evolutionists want. (c) There are no known
exceptions to the law, not even in living systems.
A New Theory Of The Electron
Richard R. Pemper, B.S.
and Thomas G. Barnes, D.Sc.
In this article work begun
in a previous one, Reference 20, is continued. Two matters especially
are considered. One is the increase of mass of charged elementary particles
moving at high speeds. Special relativity includes this increase, but
offers no physical explanation; it is hard to see how arguments about
observers can explain what happens when no observers are present. Here
the increase of inertia is seen to be due to the magnetic field generated
by the motion. The other mater is the stability of elementary particles
such as electrons. These particles are basic to electrodynamics; but
electrodynamics predicts that the particles would explode, unless there
be additional forces to bind them together. Here such a binding force
is investigated; and an incidental outcome of the investigation is the
removal of a discrepant factor, such as 4/3, which has long plagued
theories of the electron.
Beowulf: Creationist Implications
In Our Earliest English Epic
Lorella Rouster, B.S.
It is shown that the Old
English epic Beowulf may embody traditions going back to times not long
after the Flood; and thus may provide additional evidence for a universal
Flood and subsequent dispersion.
Evidence Of Glaciation In
Clifford L. Burdick, D.Sc.
Some Creationists have doubted
whether there ever was a glacial age, since they find it hard to see
how it could fit in with an Earth as young as Scripture would indicate.
On the other hand, there is certainly evidence which would seem to point
to a former glaciation. Here some of that evidence, as it is found in
Wisconsin, is described.
