Solution And Deposition Of Calcium Carbonate In A Laboratory Situation
Emmett Williams, Ph.D.
and Richard J. Herdklotz, Ph.D.
Previous work on the conditions
necessary for the rapid growth of speleothem-like structures in the
laboratory has been reported. These results were discussed in relation
to possible natural conditions. A tentative model for the formation
of limestone caves and possible dripstone formation was proposed. Certain
phases of the continued experimenal work are reported in this paper.
Was Ramapithecus The First
Chris C. Hummer
Ramapithecus is frequently
put forth by evolutionists as the first hominid or first member of the
family of man. This paper argues that the evidence for this position
is extremely fragmentary and the scenario is fraught with problems.
This paper argues that the evidence does not warrant the taxonomic status
of "hominid" for Ramapithecus. Man appears in the fossil record
suddenly and without ancestral form.
Cephalopods In The Creation
And The Universal Deluge
John Woodmorappe, B.A.
The study of claims of Cephalopod
evolution reveals many fossil-gaps; but the outstanding result is the
discrediting of the Biogenic Law and the discovery of the large degree
of similarity in forms considered to be unrelated by evolution.
Much of the stratigraphic
order (genetric; specific) ascribed to ammonoids is actually due to
time-stratigraphic concepts and to taxonomic manipulations. Indeed,
"condensed" sequences demonstrate rather mixing with cataclysmic
The known ecological positions
of cephalopods independently fit together into a mutually contemporaneous
ecologically zones coexistence. The actual stratigraphic order (ordinal;
familial) owes its existence to the burial of these ecological zones
in the Flood, while physical sorting during burial gave rise to interfamilial
A Solution To Seeing Stars
David M. Harris, B.Sc.
The question is sometimes
raised: how distant stars, created only a few thousand years ago, could
be visible even now, let alone at the Creation. Here a solution to the
problem is proposed. The solution also offers an explanation of the
red-shift of the light from stars, without any need of assuming that
the universe is expanding.
Variation And Fixity Among
Living Things. A New Biological Principle
Frank L. Marsh, Ph.D.
This article lists the processes
of variation which occur among plants and animals, and shows that a
true fixity exists in nature at the level of the basic type. The presence
of discontinuities between basic types is shown; and a new biological
principle is stated: the Principle of Limitation of Variation among
Organisms. This principle may be stated as follows: processes of biological
variation can go no further than to produce new variants within basic
types already in existence.
Thermodynamics, Energy, Matter,
H. L. Armstrong, M.Sc.
The dichotomy of matter
and energy is very common in physical discussions. It is suggested here
that both mater and energy are, in a sense, to be considered as the
materials of things. An alternative dichotomy, then, is the old one
of form and matter. Matter is conserved, forms are replicated; but neither
matter nor form arises from nothing. The consideration, that forms arise
only from pre-existing forms, is enough to reveal the impossibility
of evolution. Thus, the arguments about forms may serve as a useful
alternative to the common appeal by Creationists to the second law of
