Insect Flight: Testimony To Creation
Stephen Butt, M.S.
The evolutionists propose
utterly different schemes, alike only in their implausibility, for the
origin of flight among insects. As the saying is, when they differ so
they can not all be right, but they could all be wrong.
Creationists, on the other
hand, can view the great variety of methods of flight among insects
as evidence of the Creator's skill, in giving His creatures equipment
to make them fit for the style of life to which He assigned them.
Cellular Origins And The
Three "Primary Kingdoms": A Critique
Kevin L. Anderson
By use of two-dimensional
electrophoresis of a cell's rRNA a 'fingerprint' of the cell can be
produced. This "fingerprint" indicates the existence of a
large difference between what has been termed "prokaryote"
and "eukaryote". In fact, some select groups of organisms
thought to be prokaryote are no more prokaryote than eukaryote. Thus
three "primary kingdoms" have been proposed by evolutionists
for these basic cell types.
Such a strong difference
in the reproduction system of these three cell types indicates that
any evolutionary history would have to be at a simple level with an
extremely early divergence. As a result of this, the evolutionary model
for the cell must consist of three coexisting paths rather than the
classical single pathway.
In view of this a creation
model would appear to fit more precisely with available data.
Is The Destruction Of Plants
Death In The Biblical Sense?
John W. Klotz, Ph.D.
Some have attacked the historicity
of the account in Genesis by disagreeing with St. Paul's statement that
death entered the world through sin. They say that death is part of
the natural order, that both plants and animals died before man came
onto the scene, and that even the consumption of plant matter as food
involves the death of the plant, or of cells. The author examines this
argument, and suggests that plants are not alive in the same sense that
animals are, and that in that case the destruction of parts of a plant
need not involve death in the Biblical sense.
Evidence Against Evolution
Found In A Geology Text
Walter E. Lammerts, Ph.D.
This study arose out of
a series of letters from a geologist who is evidently a theistic evolutionist.
In them, he placed great faith in the index-fossil system of dating
stratified rocks. Accordingly, I decided to find out just what a modern
historical geology book has to say about the basis for dating the various
formations from the Cambrian on up to the Pleistocene. I found "Evolution
of the Earth" one of the clearest and most straightforward in defining
the problems involved in dating each formation; also it has a remarkably
fine series of illustrations. I should recommend the book to any Creationist
who wishes to become acquainted with modern geological concepts, and
to understand just what phenomena must be explained by a really adequate
Flood geology theory of the stratified rock formation.
It will be understood that
in criticizing the usual evolutionary doctrines, I am not attacking
"Evolution of the Earth" or its authors. I am pointing out
weaknesses in the usual theory, which are in fact admitted in the book.
Jupiter's Galilean Moons
Garth Russell Akridge,
The Voyager, in March, 1979,
found live volcanoes on one of Jupiter's Galilean moons, and the different
patterns of cratering (or lack of craters) on the four of them. These
findings point to a recent creation of these moons, and thus disagree
with the usual evolutionary ideas about the origin of the Solar System.
An Anthology Of Matters Significant
To Creationism And Diluviology: Report I
John Woodmorappe, B.A.
This report focuses on points
of interest to Creationists and Diluvialists, gleaned primarily from
the geological sciences.
The main topics mentioned
include: biological evolution; the need of apologetics and consequences
of a lack of apologetics; the lingering influence of Charles Lyell;
examples and types of mixing of fossils in the geological time scale;
the subjectivity of fossil species and genera; the artificiality of
the geological column; evidences that many alleged ancient fossil reefs
are in fact not reefs; critiques of uniformitarian claims about sedimentary
environments; miscellaneous evidence against the validity of the geological
column; and the way in which errors, similar to those in geology, can
arise in archaeology.
Several Significant Discrepancies
Between Theistic Evolution And The Biblical Account
It is the purpose of this
article to demonstrate that it is impossible to accommodate theistic
evolution to the Biblical account of creation. Furthermore, as many
publications of the Institute for Creation Research (as well as others)
have shown, all the real scientific data support literal Biblical creationism,
so that such compromises are self-defeating, as well as dishonoring
to God's word.
The Tower Of Babel
James E. Strickling
It is argued that more than
Scripture actually says has commonly been read into the account of the
Tower of Babel. In particular, Scripture does not say explicitly that
the diversity of languages began there instantaneously. An interruption
of the faculty of speech, followed by dispersion, would, it is suggested,
have been enough; diversification of languages would then have followed.
The Bishop Of Oxford: Not
Richard Wrangham, Ph.D.
The great debate of 1860
is remembered chiefly for the victory of Huxley over Wilberforce. But
does Wilberforce deserve to be remembered as a failure?
Evolutionistic Defense Against
H. L. Armstrong, M.Sc.
Evolutionists, when confronted
with the principles of thermodynamics, and especially the second law,
often resort to two defenses: that increase of order goes on spontaneously
in crystallization; and that the receipt of energy from the Sun somehow
changes the matter. It is shown here that neither of these contentions
is valid. So it is impossible, in the light of established physical
principles, that the order in the world around us could have arisen
spontaneously from chaos.
