Does An Embryo Climb Its Tree?
William J. Tinkle, Ph.D.
The notion of recapitulation
by a developing embryo has been soundly discredited for years. Indeed,
even when it was in favor it was maintained only by ignoring contrary
evidence, and even by outright forgery of evidence. But still the notion
reappears now and then, chiefly in text-books, or semi-popular writings,
the readers of which are not in a good position to learn the truth from
other sources. Thus, it seems worth while to point out once more that
the notion is a completely false one, and is not held by knowledgeable
Drumlins And Diluvial Currents
Douglas E. Cox
An explanation for the origin
of drumlins has not been discovered in the context of glacial theory,
yet many people assume they were formed by ice movement. In this article,
it is proposed that drumlins can be more readily explained in terms
of fluvial action. Streamlining of sediments would result from currents
of flood waters generated by the uplifts of the earth's crust at the
end of the flood. The internal composition of the drumlins can be explained
by the disintegration of rock upon the release of pressure, which resulted
in drumlins of varying composition in drumlin fields.
Can The Canopy Hold Water?
Glenn R. Morton
Calculations of the surface
temperature of the Earth with a water vapor canopy, under the assumption
of radiative equilibrium, yield temperatures too high for life to exist.
Moreover, when the results about radiation are combined with the barometric
law, only certain solutions to the physical description of the canopy
are found to be possible for a given set of assumptions; and those solutions
generally lead to impossible environmental conditions or else do not
fulfill the purpose for which the canopy was proposed. It appears that
some new thinking about the antediluvian climate, and the cause of the
Flood, is due.
Scripture Does Not Rule Out
A Vapor Canopy
Joseph C. Dillow, Th.D.
Although the subject of
the vapor canopy has not been discussed for years, some creationists
remain unconvinced of its existence for both scientific and Scriptural
reasons. This article is an attempt to refute two common objections
from Scripture which opponents of the vapor canopy have frequently used:
Genesis 1:14-17 and Psalm 148:1-10.
Expansion Of The Universe:
A Study Of The Initial Conditions
G. Russell Akridge, Ph.D.
The big bang model of the
universe, frequently alleged to prove that the universe is billions
of years old, is examined using first classical Newtonian mechanics
and then general relativity. The model is, in fact, found to be incapable
of determining the age of the universe, and does not prove the age usually
associated with the model. A recent Creation is just as consistent with
the laws of physics of the model as the big bang followed by vast times
needed for evolution. A modified Hubble's law is thus derived. This
modified Hubble's law shows, among other things, that the quasars, for
instance, are not as distant as previously believed. This reduction
in the distance to quasars should aid the understanding of the energy
which they radiate.
