Plant Succession Studies
In Relation To Micro-evolution And The Extinction Of Species
No evidence was found for any type of evolution, including micro-evolution in a plant succession study. Extinction (degeneration process) occurred often. Natural selection at best only maintains the status quo.
Earth's Young Magnetic Age:
An Answer To Dalrymple
Dalrymple's atack on the decay of the earth's magnetic field and the resulting young earth concept is found to be flawed.
One Error Of Dalrymple Corrected
Dalrymple's attack on a creationist calculation of radiometric dating is found to be incorrect.
Teaching About Origin Questions
With this article the author begins a series in which he draws upon a decade of classroom experience in teaching about origins questions. He encourages creative, innovative "solutions" rather than litigation regarding teaching about first origins. Thus the series of articles is intended to generate calm and clear understanding of "how to" teach in a fair and just manner. This article contains a discussion of the validity of two contrasting viewpoints about origins.
Did The Universe Start Out
The problems of those cosmologists that assume a structureless initial state of the universe seem to make structured-origin models more promising and attractive.
Ice Ages: The Mystery Solved?
Part II: The Manipulation Of Deep-Sea Cores
This part discusses the basis for the modern revival of the astronomical theory of the ice ages, namely statistical correlations with oxygen isotope fluctuations in deep-sea cores. The analysis of oxygen isotopes and thedating methods for cores are subject to many assumptions, variables, unknowns and problems to objectively relate cores to the astronomical theory.
The Legacy Of Duyvene De
Wit For Creationist Biology: Part II: The Folly Of Man And The Works
Of The Lord
This is part two of a three-part series of articles on the life and work of J. J. Duyvene De Wit, a Dutch biologist, who ascribed to the Creation Viewpoint and actively worked agains the falsity of evolutionary concepts.
The Creation Of Planetary
God could have started magnetic fields in the solar system in a very simple way: by creating the original atoms of the planets with many of their nuclear spins pointing in the same direction. The small magnetic fields of so many atomic nuclei add up to fields large enough to account for the magnetism of the planets. Within seconds after creation, ordinary physical events would convert the original alignment of nuclei into a large electric current circulating within each planet, maintaining the magnetic field. The currents and fields would decay steadily over thouands of years, as Barnes has pointed out. The present magnetic field strengths of tghe Earth, Sun, Moon, and planets agree very well with the values produced by this theory and a 6000-year age for the solar system. The theory is consistent with all the known data and explains many facts which have puzzled evolutionists.
