The Inconsistent Sun: How Has It Been Behaving, And What Might It Do
Hilton Hinderliter, Ph.D.
Various observations showing
the sun's behavior to be non-steady over time spans much less than millions
of years are cited. The contration, - which, in the author's opinion,
is gravitational, is just one of these. The problems of missing solar
neutrinos is well known;l some of these observations further contradict
the model of solar density distribution derived from the nuclear-fusion
model. Suggestions for further research are offered. Also, this latest
evidence is correlated with Scriptural prophecies concerning the sun.
Significant Fossil Discoveries
Since 1958: Creationism Confirmed
Marvin L. Lubenow, Th.M.
Creationists have often
pointed out that the fossil record, although claimed by some to be evidence
for evolution, is in fact more indicative of special Creation. A well
known book on geology, published in 1958, corroborated, in a remarkable
chart, the Creationist position, although the book was not written from
a Creationistic viewpoint. It showed the many distinct kinds of creature,
both plant and animal, appeared suddenly and separately in the fossil
record,and remained separate, without any evidence of evolution into
something else, until the present or until they became extinct. In this
article some of the evidence is reviewed. Also, it is shown that in
the years since 1958 ther beginning of various kinds has been found
to be earlier in the fossil record, but there is still no evidence that
some evolved from others.
Prolegomena To The Study
An analysis of the distribution
of the sediments seems to indicate that the earth at the time of the
flood was considerably smaller. Assuming that the flood occurred on
an earth of the present radius, the sediment distribution can not be
explained and appears to violate the second law of thermodynamics.
Death And Niche Limits
Mark W. Tippets
Some people believe that
life will arise spontaneously somehow, somewhere, if conditions are
right; and that having arisen it will evolve. But such people neglect
to take into account death, which results if a single niche dimension
becomes zero, i.e. if a single environmental or other condition does
not fall within the range in which it must lie forlife to be possible.
If such a dimension should become zero, that means death for the individual,
and extinction for the species. A few niche parameters, especially some
which have a bearing on the question, whether life might exist elsewhere
than on Earth are discussed.
On The Star Of Bethlehem
Gerardus D. Bouw, Ph.D.
It is shown that, while
a star really appeared to herald Our Lord's birth, all the proposed
naturalistic explanations of the star are inadequate. Hence the star
was a supernatural sign. In the course of the investigation, evidence
is adduced to show that Our Lord's birth was in the year 2 B.C.
Asa Gray And Theistic Evolution
Randall R. Hedtke
In this article are discussed
the scientific evidence which prompted Asa Gray to try to persuade Charles
Darwin to adopt theistic evolution, and Darwin's reasons for rejecting
theistic in favor of atheistic evolution. In their arguments, both men
appealed to the fossil record. Besides their interpretations of that
record, the one by Georges Cuvier is mentioned; and it is noted that
yet others are possible. So various alternative interpretations of the
record are considered to see which one best fits the facts.
