This article contains a
short response to the title question as an appropriate point of view
to guide teachers, parents, and others according to methodology of proper
and orderly scientific procedure. Avoidance of common semantic confusion
is illustrated briefly.
Robert A. Herrmann, Ph.D.
This is the final article
in the series Nature: The Supreme Logician. This article discusses
indirect evidence for the acceptance of the deductive-world model. This
evidence includes the unification of certain incompatible logics internal
to quantum mechanics, other physical theories and computer science;
subparticle models for quantum transitions, the formation of elementary
particles and fields, the local Special Theory and how such subparticle
models explain the experimental results associated with the Bell inequality.
It is shown how a special interpretation correlates the deductive-world
model to Scripture.
Global Heat Balance With
a Liquid Water and Ice Canopy
Gary L. Johnson, Ph.D.
A new model of the pre-Flood
canopy is proposed, consisting of large water globules at about 2 km
over equatorial regions and large ice fragment clouds at about 2200
km altitude over the polar regions. This canopy would have maintained
both temperature and solar radiation at proper levels for good plant
growth from pole to pole. The water globules would have collapsed at
the time of Noah and the ice clouds would have collapsed several hundred
years later to start the ice age.
Quantum Physics: A Historical
Review and Current Directions
S. G. Smith, M.S., and
C. E. Geist, Jr., M.Div
For several decades in the
20th century quantum physics has produced lively discussion and serious
debates. The authors summarize early foundational work establishing
quantum physics prior to 1930 and briefly consider the need for an epistemological
shift in our classical philosophy of science. A further evaluation is
made regarding egregious interpretations surrounding recent applications
in quantum physics and their bearing on science and theology. Finally,
a creationist framework is entertained to provide scientific insights
and constrain ideas deduced from modern physics.
