in the Antediluvian Atmosphere
J. Taylor. B.S.
Data are presented which
define the role of atmospheric carbon dioxide in plant growth. The amount
of atmospheric carbon dioxide required to support a unit amount of carbon
in the biosphere is determined from this data. This permits the determination
of the minimum amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide required to support
the antediluvian biosphere based on the amount of coal reserves and
resources. The increased atmospheric carbon dioxide may also require
an additional source of atmospheric water vapor to support the antediluvian
biosphere. Furthermore, increased atmospheric carbon dioxide may have
implications for the respiration and diet of mankind and the animals
before the Flood. Carbon dating and the preferential growth of selected
plant types in the pre-Flood world would probably be affected by increased
atmospheric carbon dioxide as well.
a New Heresy
New and exciting mathematical
strategies in science have been rapidly developing over the last two
decades. A field of study has emerged, collectively called "Chaos"
or nonlinear dynamics. A brief summary of the history and findings are
given, and various features of chaos theory are discussed regarding
creation and evolutionary world views.
and Creation Myths
A survey of creation and
flood myths throughout the world was completed, finding that most contain
a basic set of themes that indicate they all had their origin in a set
of actual historical events. It was also concluded that we have more
knowledge and understanding of the Hebrew creation account in Genesis
than any other and it stands in stark contrast to all others. Because
the source of most creation myths was oral transmission, many were likely
corrupted yet maintained the basic elements which lends credence to
the position that most all creation myths are based on a set of historical
events which occurred early in the history of humankind and which were
embellished and modified as they were passed from generation to generation.
Existence of a Higher Intelligence
A. Herrmann, Ph.D.
This article gives a general
overview of recent results in mathematical logic that should have a
profound effect not only upon the foundations of creation-science but
the foundations of all religious experiences and thought that either
assume or logically require the existence of a supernatural higher intelligence.
In particular, it is shown that the concept of the existence of a higher
intelligence exterior to the material universe can be modeled rationally
by means of the science of mathematics. It is established that human
religious experiences and scientific models associated with either an
assumption or an implied requirement that a supernatural higher intelligence
exists are not somehow irrational in character as it is claimed by many
secular scientists and philosophers. Indeed, if such experiences or
creation-science models directly correlate to certain customary Bible
interpretations, then the assumption of irrationality is scientifically
proved to be false.
