Prehistory And The Tower
Everett H. Peterson
In the absence of written
records, archaeological finds are open to various interpretations. Answers
proposed to such questions as "Where was the cradle of civilization?"
and "Who built stonehenge and similar monuments and when?"
will depend on one's suppositions. This paper examines Genesis chapters
10 and 11, and concludes that all people have their roots in Babel;
that 100 years after the Flood, approximately 12,000 highly civilized,
intelligent, knowledgeable people spread out from there; that they carried
with them a religion based on the stars and a compulsion to build monuments.
The Life And Philosophy Of
Matthew Fontaine Maury, Pathfinder Of The Sea
John R. Meyer, Ph.D.
Let us now praise famous
men, and our fathers that begat us. Ecclesiasticus 44:1
"There is a river in
the ocean: in the severest droughts it never fails, and in the mightiest
floods it never overflows; its banks and abottom are of cold water,
while its currents is of warm; the Gulf of Mexico is its fountain, and
its mouth is in the Arctic Seas. It is the Gulf Stream. There is in
the world no other such majestic flow of waters. Its current is more
rapid than the Mississippi or the Amazon, and its volume more than a
thousand times greater." From The Physical Geography of the
Sea by Matthew Fontaine Maury.
It is a rather poorly understood
fact that many of the founding fathers, of what we know today as modern
science, were individuals who believed that natural world was understandable
because the Creator endowed it with order and tus evidences the handprint
of design. The accomplishments and philosophy of Matthew Fontaine Maury
"pathfinder of the sea" and "father of modern oceanography"
are little known today even in creationist circles. However, in the
middle of the last century he was considered by many to be the foremost
scientist in North America and there was hardly a civilized country
untouched by his work and reputation.
The purpose of this paper
is to document the life and work of Matthew Fontaine Maury, demonstrating
that his allegiance to Scripture and his theistic world view were the
basis for his outstanding achievement which revolutionized the science
of oceanography and meteorology and significantly advanced astronomy.
Variation And The Fourth
Law Of Creation
By the fourth law of creation,
it is meant that living beings reamin within their kinds, although limited
variation is allowed. Various aspects of this, one of the most important
principles of biology, are examined in this article.
Glenn R. Morton, M.S.
The problem with the order
in which different fossil groups appear in the geologic record has always
been a difficult one for Creationists. Many facts are left untouched
by the usual paleoecological explanation of the fossil record; and these
are noted. An explanation of the fossil succession as a partial capturing
of the repopulation of the world following the flood is presented.
Electric Theory Of Gravitation
Thomas G. Barnes, D.Sc,
Harold S. Slusher, D.Sc, G. Russel Akridge, Ph.D., and Francisco S.
Ramirez IV, B.S.
Independent positive and
negative partial fields of equal value are assumed to be associated
with every source mass. These complimentary electric fields behve like
dormant fields with a net zero field strength except in the region of
a proton or electron. A mass upon which these fields are impressed contains
an equal number of protons and electrons. Even a neutron is assumed
to contain a proton and electron. The impressed partial fields exert
a combination of attraction and repulsion on protons and electrons embedded
in that mass. A nonlinearity in the region of each of those charges
tilts the balance such that the net electric force is one of attraction
that meets the conditions of a gravitation force. The theory is then
extended to include additional properties of the dormant field, such
as a "medium" to take the place of Maxwell's luminiferous
ether and a feedback medium in electrodynamics. This unification of
electromagnetic theory and gravitation also includes gravitational radiation.
Radiocarbon: Ages In Error
Robert E. Lee
"It may come as a shock
to some, but fewer than 50 percent of the radiocarbon dates from geological
and archaeological samples in northeastern North America have been adopted
as 'acceptable' by investigators". J. Ogden III.
Discusses problems that
have made radiocarbon unreliable, from ancient carbon-14 levels and
contamination to abuse of reported ages. Illustrates effect of faulty
chronology on genuine knowledge, with Ernst Antevs as example. Drastic
change in attitude is essential, if radiocarbon is to become a valid
means of dating the past.
