Darwinism Is Physical And Mathematical Nonsense
Howard Byington Holroyd,
In this article, new and
vastly important evidence is presented concerning the mechanical theory
of organic evolution which was popularized by Charles Darwin and developed
by his followers; and it is shown, far beyond any reasonable doubt,
that this theory is nothing more than physical and mathematical nonsense.
The great error of the Darwinians
suggests that a suitable place in history for Darwin should be a word
added to our vocabulary for a scale of errors which goes as follows:
little boo-boo, boo-boo, small error, error, big error, colossal error,
and now far larger, Darwinian error, which is the Mount Everest of errors.
To say, "Some one made a Darwinian error," means that the
person was as wrong as possible in a matter of great importance.
During the past two thousand
years, the mechanical theory of organic evolution was the darwinian
error, the highest peak, in a whole mountain chain of great and related
errors, which includes the philosophy of materialism, making H-bombs,
parts of the theories of both Capitalism and Communism, and some other
It is a fact of history
that Darwin's The Origin of Species, published in 1859, started
a vast revolution of thought in Western culture. At that time, critics
were not well prepared to refute Darwin's arguments on which he had
spent years of time. His attack came as a complete surprise. Some say
he exploded a bomb-shell, and the result was that he and his followers
won the first battle. But then the made the serious and most common
error of thinking that they had won the war; they nearly abandoned research
on weapons, and even allowed the old ones to rust.
Now it is time to start
the counter-revolution. During uneasy years of peace, due to the efforts
of quite a few people, a new and greatly improved weapon has been invented;
indeed a multi-megaton "intellectual H-bomb" has been designed.
This time it will be the Darwinians who are surprised, and this time
they will lose the war.
Flora And Fauna Of The Galapagos
John W. Klotz, Ph.D.
The author discusses, the
flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands. Particular attention is given
to finches, tortoises, cacti, and iguanas. It is concluded that Darwin
was probably right regarding the origin of unusual plants and animals
he found on the Galapagos Islands, but wrong in his conclusions (and
observations since) proved evolution.
Progress Report On Grand
Clifford L. Burdick, Hon.
During 1964 and 1965, while
I was doing work in the Department of Geochronology at the University
of Arizona (with special application to paleobotany and palynology),
we did a research project in the Petrified Forest of Arizona. We had
especially good results with fine microphotographs of many species of
Chinle formation conifers. Thus encouraged, Dr. Kremp next initiated
some research in the Grand Canyon in palynology.
Considering the wide sections
of Paleozoic Era Periods visible of the geologic column, there are all
too scanty arrays of macrofossils to demonstrate the evolutionary succession
of life. Since microfossils, that is pollen and spores are many times
more numerous, it is a well conceived enterprise to check the fossil
plant life by means of the spores.
Samples were taken by the
instructor and turned over to this author to process in the laboratory.
The schistose formations from the Permian, the Mississippian, the Cambrian,
and the younger Precambrian produced a variety of spores, but the predominant
type of spore from all the ages tested was the vesiculate conifer. Such
results were deemed by some as out of order, according to current paleontological
Accordingly the Creation
Research Society sponsored a repeat research project in the Grand Canyon,
and also encouraged a corollary project sponsored by Loma Linda University
of California. Samples processed by the University of Arizona produced
negative results, due to defective technique. On a tour of the canyon
sponsored by the Bible-Science Association, Drs. Bullis, and Arthur
Chadwick of Loma Linda took rock samples and processed them in their
Loma Linda laboratories.
At this writing their results
practically duplicate the work formerly done by Burdick.
A. J. ("Monty")
The author has endeavored
to show that Lyell's Uniformitarianism Hypothesis is not only the philosophy
governing the study of Geology, but also that which governs Cosmology
and Chemical Evolution. He then considers the formation by chance of
a small protein 100 amino acids long, containing 20 different amino
acids in a definite sequence from a "primeval soup" where
all the Earth's hydrospheric water molecules have been replaced by these
20 different amino acids. The author uses the laws of probability to
show that the odds of forming such a small protein by chance in the
last 1010 years are 1067 to 1 against. In light
of this conclusion, the complex nature of DNA is then briefly discussed
with reference to the genetic code. Finally the author concludes that
in order to avoid confusion, science must only be studied in the light
of God's revelation to man.
Biological Oddities That
Are Unaccountable By Evolution
Oscar L. Brauer, Ph.D.
Evolution theorists strain
at a gnat and swallow a camel. After noting some similarity of structure
between two different families of animals, they immediately assume some
ancestral relation-ship. They jump at some little factor such as "survival
of the fittest" and neglect a thousand factors that are not explainable
by this assumed process. To account for the hundreds and hundreds of
unique things in the human body by anything like evolution is absurd
in the extreme. It is impossible to provide a plan, a driving force,
or a direction to the evolution theory. Accordingly, this view is unable
to account for certain highly designed systems in the animal world.
Four well-designed adaptations in the animal world are examined. Creation
evidence is seen in oilbird sonar, hare tracking, vulture tool use,
and chuckwalla escape behaviors.
Young Age Vs. Geologic Age
For The Earth's Magnetic Field
Thomas G. Barnes, D.Sc.
The rapid decay of the earth's
magnetic field, predicted by the rigorous theoretical treatment of Horace
Lamb and confirmed by 130 years of real time measurements, is presented
as strong evidence that the earth's magnetic field is thousands and
not millions or billions of years old. Attempts to substantiate a "geologic
age" for the earth's magnetic field through a hypothesized self-excited
dynamo to sustain the magnetic field are shown to be futile. Paleomagnetic
"evidence" for reversals in the earth's magnetic field is
shown, by references to the technical literature, to be fraught with
inconsistencies and incapable of providing acceptable evidence for a
long age for the magnetic field.
A General Analysis Of The
Biblical "Kind" (Min)
Arthur J. Jones, B.Sc.
The biblical term min
("kind") is examined with regard to its etymology, form, and
usage. It is shown that min is a strict classificatory term denoting
definite "units of creation" and not a term signifying merely
that "like begets like." The article concludes with a general
analysis of the Mosaic lists of clean and unclean animals as a preliminary
to an investigation of the taxonomic extent of the min.
Could There Be Life On Other
Planets Of The Solar System
Oscar M. Erpenstein
The author considers life
as we are familiar with it on the earth. The conditions under which
such life exists are discussed, and then compared with whatever conditions,
that might be suitable for such life, are to be found on the other planets
of the solar system.
