Was Noah's Ark Stable?
David H. Collins, B.S.
The article deals with the
question, "Would Noah's Ark survive the cataclysmic forces of a
world-wide flood?" The procedure followed is that which is followed
by naval architects in modern ship design. Initially the weight and
contents of the ark are evaluated. Then, by way of calculations, the
ability of the ark to remain upright in high winds (up to three times
hurricane force) is investigated. The results of these calculations
are evaluated on the basis of modern practice, including the U.S. Coast
Guard Regulations. The conclusion drawn from the investigation is that
the ark was extremely stable, well able to withstand the forces hurled
against it in the flood.
Harold W. Clark, D.Sc.
For the first third of this
century most creationists held to the concept that there was no general
sequence to the fossils, but that they were arranged into the "geological
column" simply to support the theory of vast ages of time. More
recent studies suggest that there is a general sequence, although not
in such detail as the evolutionists hold. In order to explain this orderly
arrangement, the ecological zonation theory has been proposed, and has
been accepted by many creationists. According to this theory the fossil
"zones" are the remnants of the original life zones of the
Some questions and problems
are discussed, and answers suggested.
The Crisis In Radiocarbon
David J. Tyler
A comparison of radiocarbon
dates obtained from Egyptian archaeological samples and from contemporary
tree growth-rings shows significant discrepancies over an extended period
of time. On geophysical grounds, however, a single calibration curve
for the whole of the Northern Hemisphere of the Earth is predicted.
Further, there is no justification for suspecting tree growth-rings
used for calibration to be contaminated in any way. The author concludes
that the discrepancies are due to chronological errors in assigning
ages to the Egyptian samples and the dendrochronological samples, and
shows that that calibration before about 500 B.C., may be justifiably
questioned. Additional C-14 calibration anomalies resulting from measurements
of a number of dendrochronological samples are also discussed to indicate,
that if they are correct, the fundamental principles of the dating method
Mystery Of The Radiohalos
Stephen L. Talbott
Current physical laws may
not have governed the past.
Earth's primordial crustal
rocks, rather than cooling and solidifying over millions or billions
of years, crystallized almost instantaneously.
Some geological formations
thought to be one hundred million years old are in reality only several
thousand years old.
What Will They Say In 10,000
David J. Rodabaugh, Ph.D.
It is shown herein that
evolutionists increase their estimates of the earth's age exponentially.
Conclusions are given on the assumption that this trend will continue.
Galaxy Clusters And The Mass
Gerardus D. Bouw, Ph.D.
Various proposals which
have been proposed to resolve the so-called "missing mass"
or "mass anomaly" in galaxy clusters are reviewed here. Basically,
these hypotheses can be broken down into two types of proposals: the
missing mass hypotheses and the missing physics ideas. The presence
of the mass anomaly has been used, in the past, in support of a young
cosmos. The validity of such an approach is reviewed.
Seventeen Problems For Evolutionists
Art F. Poettcker, B.Sc.,
This article is mainly a
survey and review of portions of the literature of particular interest
to creationists. As a teacher the author found that textbook authors
present evolution as an assured fact, and rarely mention any problems
or objections which might be raised. But there are many problems, which,
in the author's opinion, are fatal to the dogma of evolution. Some of
those problems are presented and discussed.
