Three Levels Of Anthropological Objection To Evolution
R. Clyde McCone, Ph.D.
among themselves about any particular application of evolutionary explanation.
Yet they tend to accept without question the general idea of evolution.
The data of evolution can be shown to be either borrowed or generated
by the assumptions. The uniformitarian assumptions of an existent order
can be shown to be inconsistent with an attempt to explain the origins
of that order. Evolution succeeds only in deifying nature by placing
within it the inscrutable mystery which is beyond science and the human
mind. Its deifying treatment of material nature is a value position
and not a scientific theory.
The Cause Of The Ice Age
Reginald Daly, M.S.
It is shown that there has
been only one ice age and that the theories of multiple ice ages are
misinterpretations based for the most part on index fossils. Carbon-14
dating and the recession of Niagara Falls are used to demonstrate that
the ice age is an extremely recent event. Evidence is presented to show
that the ice age was caused by, and that it followed the universal flood.
Evaporation of floodwaters cooled the atmosphere below the freezing
point. It is proposed that melting of an Arctic icecap that floated
northward in the floodwaters lowered the temperature of the ocean from
25o C to almost to zero. Just as evaporation is a cooling
process, so is freezing a "heating" process which automatically
brought on the postdiluvian "Climatic Optimum" which raised
world temperatures 5o C above "normal" after the
Relation Of Southern Pine
Cone Spirals To The Fibonacci Series
Harry V. Wiant, Jr., Ph.D.
Patterns in nature, indicative
of the existence of a Creator-God, are evident in the spiraling of pine
cones. That spiraling, as many other natural phenomena, fits the mathematical
abstraction known as the Fibonacci series. Pine cones, display numbers
of right and left spirals which are adjacent numbers in the Fibonacci
series, 8 and 5 for the major southern pines. Approximately 50% of the
cones will show maximum spiral counts to the right, and 50% to the left.
The Medical Doctor And "Occam's
Jerry P. Moore, M.D.
The concept of the unifying
hypothesis is discussed, then is illustrated by taking a simple case
history of acute pneumonia which could be diagnosed quite easily by
reasonable attention to the patient's "overall picture" rather
than to irrelevant detail.
A somewhat rough analogy
is presented in the approach to medical education. A specific instance
of a poor educational approach is the inordinate amount of time which
students must spend drilling upon classical Darwinian evolutionary concepts,
which are not only beyond proof but actually cause fragmentation within
the expanding mass of medical scientific knowledge.
Electromagnetics Of The Earth's
Field And Evaluation Of Electric Conductivity, Current, And Joule Heating
In The Earth's Core
Thomas G. Barnes, D.Sc.
Evidence of decay in the
earth's main magnetic field and the fact that Sir Horace Lamb's "model"
of the earth's magnetic field indicated that it should decay, have aroused
renewed interest in his famous work. However Lamb's original treatises
are difficult to follow because they are cast in outmoded terminology
and draw upon additional papers that are not well referenced.
Because of the great importance
of the phenomenon this paper begins with first principles and derives
the relevant equations in the terminology of our day and in a more convenient
coordinate system. In light of seismic knowledge the earth is assumed
to contain a conducting core of known radius and also assumed to have
electric currents. Solutions for the internal and external magnetic
fields are derived and show as did Lamb's solutions that the currents
and magnetic fields decay exponentially with time.
After evaluating the time
constant from existing data the conductivity of the core material is
evaluated (assuming a uniform core). A solution is also obtained for
the distribution of the current density in the core. Then the total
current and Joule heating are solved. The time constant is 1970 years;
total current is six billion amperes; and the Joule heating is two hundred
million calories per second.
