A Review of Exobiogenesis Theories
Jerry Bergman, Ph.D
Many evolutionists have concluded that all existing
naturalistic origin of life hypotheses are highly untenable. Consequently,
some prominent evolutionists have hypothesized an alternate origin of
life theory called exobiogenesis, or the theory that life evolved elsewhere
in the universe and was carried to earth. Those who reject both the
theistic world view and the possibility of abiogenesis on the ancient
earth must assume that conditions existed elsewhere in the solar system
or the universe which were more favorable for the origin of life or
biological molecules. Recognizing that conditions on earth historically
precluded the spontaneous origin of life forces exploring exobiogenesis
to maintain the naturalistic world view. This view has also motivated
the reintroduction of an intelligent design theory called directed panspermia.
Nowhere does the literature reveal as vividly the impossibility of a
naturalistic origin of life on the earth than in this field. The fact
that an entirely hypothetical scenario has been proposed in a theory
which is supported by virtually no empirical evidence forces a review
of the major exobiogenesis theories.
Stone Mountain, Georgia: A Creation
Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G
Stone mountain has an exposed granitic pluton, located
in Northeast Georgia. Uniformitarian estimates suggest that the granite
was intruded into overlying metamorphic rocks during the last stages
of the Alleghenian Orogeny. Later the mountain became exposed at the
earths surface. The uniformitarian model for the formation of
Stone Mountain remains unsolved. This paper presents an interpretation,
using the young earth Flood model, for the origin of Stone Mountain
which would predict its formation and exposure during the Flood event.
Fossil wood of Big Bend National
Park, part IV: Wood Structure, Nodules, Paleosols, and Climate
E.L. Williams, Ph.D.; G.F. Howe,
Ph.D.; G.T. Matzko, Ph.D.; R.B. White, B.A.; and W.G. Stark,
The various charcoalified and petrified wood samples
collected from the Dawson Creek region of the Big Bend National Park
were examined optically and by scanning electron microscopy. Possible
past climatic change in the Big Bend region is discussed.
Physiological Evidence for Creation
D.A. Kaufmann, Ph.D.
A brief review of the academic discipline of physiology
is given, including a discussion of similarities: 1) of design and function
in organelles and organs; 2) between the negative feedback mechanisms
of the heating-cooling systems of our houses and of our bodies; and
3) of the homeostatic functions of a giant airport and our bodys
hormonal system. Six body systems are examined with respect to their
precise, purposeful functions. A look at the evolutionary beliefs of
physiologists, and at vitalism versus mechanism reveals that evolutionism
is on unstable foundations. The exceptional arrangement and precise
operation of its physiological systems clearly indicate that the human
body was created by a Divine Designer, and raise serious doubts about
whether such systems could have arisen by chance.
