Genetic Variation, Limited Or Limited

Frank L. Marsh, Ph.D.

Among organisms, living and fossil, two striking phenomena exist, namely genetic variation within, (microevolution), and discontinuity (gaps) between basic types. A biological principle of limited variation pervades: genetic variability in organisms can go no farther than to produce new variants within already existing basic types. No exception has been demonstrated.

Electric Explanation Of Inertial Mass

Thomas G. Barnes, D.Sc.

All bodies ar assumed to consist of electric charges. The inertial reaction force acting backwards on an accelerated body is shown to be a magnetically induced electric force acting on the charges. Inertial mass is then associated with that reaction force and acceleration in accordance with Newton's second and third laws. This deduction is considered to have potential in a possible reinterpretation of the foundations of modern physics.

Natural Selection And The Christian View Of Redemption

Richard Riss

The theory of natural selection is irreconcilable with the Christian view of redemption. According to the theory of evolution, mankind and other species ahve common ancestors. Natural selection occurred through a process of the survival of the fittest, according to which species that were not sufficiently adapted to the environments in which they lived wee unable to survive. The theory of natural selection is dependent upon the assumption that there was death in the world before the appearance of man and that death played a part in the development of modern man, since man is a product of the process of the survival of the fittest. Such a theory cannot be reconciled with the Christian view of redemption, according to which: (1) man's susceptibility to physical death was a result of the curse placed upon him as a result of the fall, and (2) mankind has been released from the effects of the curse, including physical death, through the resurrection of Christ from the dead. If, as the theory of natural selection would require, death existed before the appearance of man upon the earth and man inherited mortality from his forbears, then it would be inconsistent to maintain (1) that man's susceptibility to physical death was a result of the curse, (2) that there is any redemption from physical death through Christ, (3) that there will be a physical resurrection of the dead at the end of the age and (4) that there was a physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Lieberman Revisited

Roxanne L. Doherty

"If we accept the theory of evolution, we must face the problem of the evolution of human language." Many philosophers and researchers have approached this problem but no one answer has been universally accepted. Philip Lieberman's conclusions were presented in Palermo's book as probably correct - conclusions of which I am skeptical. Using scientific evidence, I have attempted to highlight his major errors, thereby showing that his suggetion of a missing link in the evolution of language is unfounded.

Genetic Engineering: The Evolutionary Link

Kirby Anderson and Raymond G. Bohlin

Although a great deal has been said about the creation-evolution controversy, much less has been written about the implications of evolutionary thinking. One area of great concern is how evolutionary assumptions cloud our perception of genetic engineering. It is the purpose of this paper to expose that link and provide a Biblical base for evaluating genetic engineering.

The Flood On An Expanding Earth

Glenn R. Morton, M.S.

Born's lattice theory is used to prove that a change in the permittivity of free space would cause a differential expansion of the earth and allow for compressive forces necessary to account for various geologic features.
