Nineteenth Century Darwinism and the Tasmanian Genocide
Jerry Bergman, Ph.D.
It was widely believed in the nineteenth century that the Tasmanians were a living link between modern humans and their primate ancestors. Given the presupposition of naturalistic evolution, the Tasmanian people were often seen as less than human and, consequently, many people felt it was not wrong or immoral to treat them like animals. Today it is concluded that htey were a distinct racial group similar to the Australian Aborigines that possessed a unique culture and were fully human. This event is only one of many examples of the numerous tragedies that evolutionary naturalism has produced in modern times.
Dougherty Gap: Evidence for a Turbidity Current Paleoenvironment
Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G., and Jack H. Cowart, M.S., P.G.
A trace fossil exposure located at Dougherty Gap, Walker County, Georgia, provides an excellent opportunity to evaluate existing physical information, and compare a uniformitarian interpretation and a young-earth Flood interpretation for that site. This examination reveals that a turbidity current depositional environment better explains the stratigraphic record found at this site than does the proposed uniformitarian prograding delta model. Additionally, a turbidity current depositional environment fits within both the expected depositional environment and the timeframes of the young-earth Flood model.
A Biblical Christian Framework for Earth History Research: Introduction to the Series
John K. Reed and Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G.
This is an introduction to a series of papers to appear in forthcoming issues of the CRSQ. These papers, written by professional geologists, will trace a logical sequence of steps for the development of a young-earth approach to earth history studies.
