on an Expanding Earth
(Minisymposium on Orogeny - Part II)
The expanding radius model
of the earth after the Flood is offered as a mechanism for orogeny.
Contiental uplift with ocean basin subsidence after the Flood does not
seem probable. The flood process lasted much longer than one year.
- A Tidal (Astronomical Flyby) Phenomenon
The Earth and four other
planets (Mars Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus) give evidence of having been
hit by fragments of bodies and/or capturing fragments in ring systems
such as the icy rings of Saturn. In the case of Mars, 91 percent
of its craters, including all of the largest, are on one side of the
planet. This suggests that (a) 82 percent of its craters occurred
on one day, and (b) those fragments which missed Mars became the asteroids.
But, paying attention to the perihelions of the 15 largest asteroids,
whose average is 239,000,000 miles from the Sun, the implication is
that the fragmentation occurred when Mars was in another orbit.
The flybys of Mars caused mountain uplifts on the earth.
in My final Year as President of the Society
H. Rusch, Sr., M.S.
Biology textbooks for classroom
use are discussed. A history of the Creation research Society
(CRS) and an evaluation of its work as seen by an old warrior is presented.
The Law of
Symmetric Variation and the Gene-Theme Model
Organisms remain within
their respective Genesis kinds since they obey the Law of Symmetric
Variation. This is the fourth in a series of biological laws suggested
by Brown (1982a) and it will be explained fully, along with the term
Gene-Theme Model. The evidence for the latter will be discussed
in conjuction with the fossil record.
Evolution - Do the Octopus and Human Eyes Qualify
The eyes of the higher Cephalopods
particularly those of the octopus, are compared with the human eye to
try to determine whether they are legitimate examples of that rather
vague, innocuous evolutionary principle of convergence. Some similarities
and differences are explored with the conclusion that in the created
order we observe similar over-all blue prints being used for similar
purposes, with the necessary modifications for special conditions and/or
environments, the eye of the octopus and that of man being one example.
