Sedimentation And The Fossil Record: A Study In Hydraulic Engineering
Henry M. Morris, Ph.D.
Since the fossil record
in sedimentary rocks of the earth's crust supposedly provides documentary
evidence of organic evolution throughout geologic time, it is of considerable
importance to know how these fossil-bearing sediments were originally
deposited. A study of these phenomena in light of modern knowledge of
sediment hydraulics and fluid mechanics indicates that the sediments
must have been laid down very rapidly, even catastrophically, rather
than slowly over long ages. Furthermore, the evidence favors one single
major depositional epoch rather than a large number of individual and
localized sedimentary catastrophes spread over great expanses of time.
The Origin Of The Blue-Green
George F. Howe, Ph.D.
Blue-green algae are fascinating
microorganisms which have an astounding cellular complexity all of their
own. An illustrated discussion of cell structure, spores, and reproduction
in blue-green algae is presented.
Fossil remains of blue-green
algae are quite similar to living forms. Arguments from homology to
parallelism show that in different aspects blue-green algae variously
resemble red algae, green algae, Zea mays, or bacteria! Most
evolutionists believe, however, that bacteria and blue-green algae have
evolved from a close common ancestry. Much evidence is presented here
from writings of Pringsheim and other workers to show that there are
great differences in spores, pigments, biochemistry, and movement between
bacteria and blue-green algae. These differences are strong evidence
in support of the view that the various kinds of blue-green algae and
bacteria were separately created.
A Summary Of The Monera
N. A. Rupke
During the second half of
the previous century evolutionists tried to fill up the gap between
matter and life by creating the group of the Monera. Defined
as being extremely simple the Monera were assumed to support
or even to prove spontaneous generation. Detailed descriptions of various
Monera by foremost research workers overflowed the scientific
However, little by little
the Monera were discerned to be fallacious or false to the definition.
In addition, prolonged research showed that even the most simple
Protista are in fact inconceivably complex. Thus the gap between
mater and life has widened and by that creationism proves to be justified
on this issue.
