IN THE HUMAN BODY
Explanations of two examples
of a pulley system, an example of a wheel and axle system, an example
of lubricating disks in the joints, and an example of bone design
are further evidence of a divine creation and militate against belief
in the philosophy of chance combination of molucules-to-man evolution.
OF KINDS AS
DEMONSTRATED BY CANIDS
The author speculates
about the degree of excellence with which the Creator first endowed
the newly created kinds (MIN), and suggests that one manifestation
of this past glory was the genetic variability with which each "kind'
was endowed. The canids are used as an example to demonstrate this
potential for variability.
The article proceeds to list the major categories of canids: 118 different
breeds of domestic dogs and many types of mongrels, Pariah Dogs, Dingoes,
and seven true wild dogs; four different species of jackals; five
different species of wolves, among which the Gray Wolves and Coyotes
are known to occur in a large variety of races; and at least 13 different
species of Foxes. All four major categories of canids have been known
While evolutionists consider
these many varieties as results of evolutionary processes at work,
the author argues that these varieties "devolved" from superior
created canids, but within the boundaries of the MIN, He also suggests
that creationists begin to use the term "baramin" when referring
EVIDENCE FOR THE CONFUSION OF TONGUES
Legends about the flood
are about universal; this fact is strong evidence to show that the
Noachian Flood was universal. Some investigation has been made to
see whether legends of a confusion of tongues, such as that recorded
in Scripture as having happened at the Tower of Babel, are also universal,
or at least widespread. While such legends have not been found to
be so common as flood legends, there are some about a confusion of
tongues, and they are found in significantly separated parts of the
world. Of course, belief in the truth of Scripture does not depend
upon such legends, yet such corroboration is interesting and worthwhile.
The fact that the first
words of the Bible are "In the Beginning" is some indication
of the importance which Scripture gives to beginnings. Here are collected
some observations about some of the important beginnings: the beginnings
of the world, of humanity, of Israel, and of the Church. Beyond all
of these there is to be a new Beginning, which is still expected.
FLOOD AND THE GEOLOGICAL RECORD
The book of Genesis contains
a detailed account of a great flood, apparently covering the entire
earth. It is reasonable to ask how God caused this flood and what
the geological data are to support the Genesis record. God, of course,
could have created enough additional water to have covered the earth
with a flood, and then annihilated the water afterwards. However,
the assumption is made that God stayed within the bounds of the natural
laws he had established at creation. This paper is an examination
of what the Bible author related about the flood.
Three gross models are
discussed briefly by which one might account for the generation of
the fossil record. The models are concerned with the generation of
the accumulated genetic complexity. They have features which exclude
each other. It is contended that present observers have not and probably
cannot find a way to make a choice between them based upon the fossil
This impasse is likened to that in physics known as the Heisenberg
The only known escape from this dilemma is a free-will choice between
the options. The creationist point of view is one of these options,
and has two very important strengths,: (1) It is consistent with the
historical records such as the Bible. (2) It is consistent with the
second law of thermodynamics.
MAN AND THE CREATION CONCEPT
Anthropology is based
on the evolutionary philosophy. Early discoveries in Europe were used
to establish a "sequence of cultures" of prehistoric man
which has been extended with variable success to other parts of the
Glacial deposits and cave remains correlated with the glacial "period'
have been related to the "pluvials" of non-glacial regions
again with variable success.
This study contains a brief review of the discovery of Neanderthal
Man, Pithecanthropus of Southeast Asia, and Australopithecus of South
Africa. Evidence is given to show that these "races" were
not evolutionary in nature, but degenerative.
Earliest cities of the Middle East show a surprisingly high degree
of culture. It is noted that early man, as he led a nomadic life,
faced adverse conditions that resulted in deterioration, particularly
of the skull features, but as they settled down and established an
agricultural and urban civilization, these primitive characteristics
disappeared. Discovery of modern-appearing skulls below "primitive"
ones, or contemporaneous with them, disputes the claim that these
crude fornu were the result of "evolution."
It is suggested that anthropologists take a new look at the evidence,
and align anthropology with the Genesis account of creation and the
Flood. The creationist philosophy will give an interpretation that
is superior to that of "evolution."
AND THE ARK
There are many questions
which could be asked about the Flood, the greatest crisis which the
human race has ever faced; and about the Ark, the means whereby some
were saved. In this article the author attempts to answer some of
the questions, and to suggest possible ways of investigating others.
