Are Human And Mammal Tracks
Found Together With The Tracks Of Dinosaurs In The Kayenta Of Arizona?
Part I: A History Of
Research And A Site Description
Paul O. Rosnau, B.A, Jeremy
Auldaney, George F. Howe, Ph.D, William Waisgerber, M.S.
A history of current research
on quasihuman ichnofossils (supposed man tracks) in Mesozoic strata
is offered herein. The authors review literature relative to studies
of human-like tracks along the Paluxy River, Glen Rose, Texas. They
also present a history of work on humanoid tracks in Arizona.
A general geographic and
geologic description of the study sites near Tuba City, Arizona, is
given together with some pictures of representative tracks. A full presentation
of results and conclusions will appear in Part II.
Is The Sun An Age Indicator?
Don B. DeYoung, Ph.D and
David E. Rush, B.S.
Questions on the age of
the sun necessarily hinge on how it produces its enormous energy. Long-age
evolutionists favor thermonuclear fusion, the only known process that
could last for billions of years. Young-age creationists counter that
the evidence for fusion is scanty at best, and many have readily adopted
data which seemsto show that the sun is shrinking. If so, it could be
heating itself by gravitational collapse instead of fusion. However,
such data is probably in error, and, in any case is so much larger that
the rate actually necessary to produce the sun's heat as to be irrelevant.
The sun may be heated by gravitational collapse, bu fusion, or a combination
of both - there is simply not enough evidence to tell. The sun is not
an age indicator one way or the other.
Formation Of The First Cell
Kevin Anderson, Ph.D.
While much attention and effort has focused on the prebiotic formationof
such molecules as amino and nucleic acids, the formation of a reproducing
cellular entity in a prebiotic environment constitutes a gap seldom
addressed in the scientific literature. Indeed, the gap between simple
organic molecules and a reproducing cell is vastly greater than that
envisioned by most researchers in origin of life studies. The nature
and complexity of known cells suggests that the simplest conceivable
cellular form is far too complex to be a product of known prebiotic
mechanisms. From directing metabolic processes to maintaining osmotic
stasis, all would be necessary functions of the first cell.
