Evaluation of Australopithecus Afarensis
Anti-creationist Leon Albert
believes that certain problems with creationist treatment of the australopithecines,
particularly 'Lucy,' invalidate the creationist position that 'Lucy'
is not a prehuman ancestor. This is not necessarily so, but the argument
on which that position is based is incomplete. The difficulties raised
by Albert are discussed with a view to resolving them by completing
Humanism and Evolution
Feminism is an ideology
based on the anti-Christian philosophy of humanism. Evolution, through
genetic, embryological and DNA evidence along with the bizarre technological
possibility of male pregnancy and childbirth, has become the scientific
framework on which feminism rests. This has resulted in the individual
replacing the family as the functional unit in secular society. In contrast,
the doctrine of creation establishes the divine order of the sexes with
the family as the functional unit in a Christian society.
Evidence for Macroevolution and Darwinism: Darwinian Arguments and
the Disintegrating Neo-Darwinian Synthesis--Part II
W. R. Bird,
Part I discussed three of
the eight primary lines of evidence offered for macroevolution and Darwinian
mechanisms. Part II addresses the remaining arguments for macroevolution
and Darwinian mechanisms. Evolutionists are cited who suggest that (1)
the "facts of comparative anatomy provide no evidence for evolution,"
while the "attempt to find homologous genes has been given up as
hopeless"; (2) the embryological argument used to center on a biogenetic
"law" that has "been demonstrated to be wrong by numerous
subsequent scholars," and now stands on the problem that "anatomically
homologous parts in different related organisms appear to have quite
different origins"; (3) the comparative biochemistry argument offers
a "serious . . . challenge to the whole evolutionary framework"
rather than support, by widespread anomalies that require "a robust
rejection of a generalized molecular clock hypothesis of DNA evolution";
(4) the population genetics argument has made "no direct contribution
to what Darwin obviously saw as the fundamental problem: the origin
of species," and "is merely the blind leading the blind";
and (5) the artificial selection argument overlooks that "selective
breeding is not analogous to the action of 'natural selection'."
All scientists mentioned in this article are evolutionists unless otherwise

of Light and Pulsars
The consistency of pulsar
signals provides unique constraints on the hypothesis that the speed
of light has decayed in the past. The model of decay in the speed of
light proposed by Norman and Setterfield is found to be an inaccurate
description of reality. The data and theory strongly suggest that if
the speed of light has decayed, it has done so in a very obscure manner.
Theory of Relativity: Its Assumptions and Implications
J. Benton, Ph.D.
Since Albert Einstein proposed
the Special Theory of Relativity in 1905, there has been much discussion,
concern, and confusion. This theory is probably the most controversial
concept within physics and has been the subject of no little controversy
in the origins debate. It is not the intent of this paper to defend
or refute the theory, rather to clarify what is and is not assumed and
what is and is not implied by it. Thus, hopefully this will reduce the
confusion and perhaps some of the unprofitable element of the controversy.
Analysis of The Atomic Constants, Light and Time
R. H. Brown,
A statistical analysis of
the data presented in The Atomic Constants, Light and Time indicates
that a significant change in the velocity of light has not occurred
in recent years.
