More Creationist Research (14 Years)
Part 1: Geological Research
Duane T. Gish, Ph.D.
Creationist research in the past 14 years is reviewed as it was in the first decade of the Creation Research Society (Gish, 1975). Part I is a review of geological research and Part II (to appear in the next Quarterly) is a review of biological research. Dwindling Resource
Evidence of a Young Earth
Thomas G. Barnes, D.Sc.
The best evidence for a young earth is the dwindling energy field of the earth's dipole magnet. Humphreys (1988) has no physical model for the reversed directions in rock magnetization he proposes. The state of the earth's dipole magnet cannot be evaluated from rock magnetization data.
Radioactive Halos: Geological Concerns
Kurt P. Wise, Ph.D.
The geology involved in the polonium halo research is examined. Since there is a lack of locality and specimen information, the geology associated with the presence of polonium halos is incompletely understood. A preliminary examination of this geology casts doubt on the explanatory power of Gentry's model. Further research into the geology of halos is necessary.
Response to Wise
Robert V. Gentry, M.S.
I appreciate the opportunity to respond to Wise's comments. I respond on a paragraph by paragraph basis to the criticism.
The Litopterna--A Lesson in Taxonomy: The Strange Story of the South America 'False' Horses
Erich A. von Fange, Ph.D.
The supposed evolution of the horse was confronted by contradictory fossil evidence from South America. The solution in 1910 was to banish the contradictions into an obscure separate order of mammals. This paper illustrates the strange and wonderful contortions of taxonomists to remain mindlessly loyal when the theory of evolution fails them. Editor's note--(The reader may wish to consult previous Quarterly articles on the subject of horse evolution: Cousins, F.W. 1971. A note on the unsatisfactory nature of the horse series of fossils as evidence for evolution. CRSQ 8:99-108; Davidheiser, B. 1975. Horse brain, cow brain. CRSQ 12:88-9.
The Atomic Constants in Light of Criticism
Criticisms to the arguments offered to support a recent decay in the speed of light are answered. The hypothesis is still a viable model for any young-earth discussion.
