The Tertiary Stratigraphy Surrounding Americus, Georgia:
Evidence in Support of the Young-Earth Flood Framework

Carl R. Froede, Jr.

Uniformitarian scientists define their stratigraphic column using fossils linked to type sections, with the expectation that the rock record should exhibit evolutionary trends in its strata. However, such is often not the case. A significant portion of the “Tertiary” section exposed along road cuts and in open-pit mines near Americus, Georgia is barren of both body fossils and trace fossils. Hence, there is sparse evidence to support the assertion that the strata reflect millions of years of evolution. Instead, these sediments exhibit features suggesting high-energy deposition. The field data are more amenable to an interpretation within the young-Earth Flood framework.

CO2 Gas Well Effluent Analysis

John R. Doughty

Radiocarbon is found throughout the geological record, thus indicating a young earth. This research expands that information base by sampling the carbon dioxide in four of the five major CO2 gas fields in the USA, and performing isotopic analyses. The data is consistent with the young earth creationist paradigm and provides additional incentive to investigate the isotopic composition of the earth’s crustal gases.

Darwinism and the Deterioration of the Genome

Jerry Bergman

An evaluation of DNA/RNA mutations indicates that they cannot provide significant new levels of information. Instead, mutations will produce degradation of the information in the genome. This is the opposite of the predictions of the neoDarwinian origins model. Such genome degradation is counteracted by natural selection that helps maintain the status quo. Degradation results for many reasons, two of which are reviewed here: 1) there is a tendency for mutations to produce a highly disproportionate number of certain nucleotide bases such as thymine and 2) many mutations occur in only a relatively few places within the gene called “hot spots,” and rarely occur in others, known as “cold spots.” An extensive review of the literature fails to reveal a single clear example of a beneficial information-gaining mutation. Conversely, thousands of deleterious mutations exist, supporting the hypothesis that very few mutations are beneficial. These findings support a creation origins model.

The Bible, Epidemiology, and Edenomics

Jeffrey G. Schragin

Many evolutionists claim that science has disproved the Bible and they use this claim to discredit creationism. In this paper I view the Bible from an epidemiologic perspective and attempt to show that, contrary to being disproved by science, it can be considered a general guide to medical epidemiology. The concepts of health and disease, the Creation Health Model, and the critical dependence of human health on plant life are discussed and shown to be challenges to Darwinian evolution. Human nutrition and health are immensely complex on the molecular level. I introduce the term edenomics to describe the interactions between plant phytochemicals and human cellular biology. Edenomics suggests reductionist understanding of the molecular biology of chronic diseases may remain illusive and that lifestyle may be the most important determinant of health in developed nations. It is concluded that the science of epidemiology supports the Bible and is opposed to neodarwinism.
