The Human Skull Composed Of Coal
Wayne Frair, Ph.D.
The human skull reputedly
fossilized in brown coal has been found to be an artistic fabrication.
An appreciation of the status of this artifact removes an obstacle to
our arriving at a better understanding of man's relationship to other
organism's in the creation, as shown by the fossil record.
Square Pegs In Round Holes
Or Ridiculous "Convergences"
Evan V. Shute
An extensive presentation
is made of a remarkable series of identical biochemical entities which
are found in organisms widely separated taxonomically. Enough data are
provided to illustrate that one can propose the most unlikely relationships
based upon biochemical information, when employing the idea that resemblance
means relationship - the assumption upon which the theory of evolution
is based. What do biochemical affinities really mean - relationship
by descent from a common ancestor, parallel evolution, or are they examples
of God's quotation of His previous work?
A Simplified Explanation
Of The First And Second Laws Of Thermodynamics: Their Relationship To
Scripture And The Theory Of Evolution
Emmett L. Williams, Jr.,
Evolution simply could not
have occurred unless both the first and second laws of thermodynamics
were violated many times. After explaining thermodynamics in non-mathematical
language, relation of the first law to evolution, and relation of the
second law to evolution, is given extensive consideration. Three arguments,
which are often offered to "defend" the occurrence of evolution
in spite of thermodynamics, are studied carefully. It is concluded that
the first and second laws of thermodynamics overrule evolution.
Immorality In Natural Selection
William J. Tinkle, Ph.D.
Differences of opinion become
evident when it is claimed that living things reached their present
structure by natural selection. That improved kinds are formed by struggle
through natural selection is not supported by modern findings. Influence
of the doctrine of natural selection has been illustrated by behavior
of industrialists and militarists, who have reasoned that, if evolution
was accomplished by selfish initiative at the expense of other living
things, it is easy to justify the same conduct now. It is dangerous
to believe that man is the product of struggle among selfish, irresponsible
Bolton Davidheiser, Ph.D.
Social Darwinism has been
used by unscrupulous industrialists to condone their unethical practices
toward laborers and competitors. Darwinism also offered a basis for
acts which have resulted in racial strife. Further, the Darwinian theory
of evolution has been used by militarists to glorify war. Abuses toward
multitudes of human beings have been sanctioned and abetted with evolution
as an excuse; and, if evolution is not true, such inhumanity toward
men seems all the more tragic.
That Which Has Been Created
Should Be Conserved
To read the daily newspaper
is to become exposed to the need for conservation. The earth, plants,
and animals have all been misused by many men. Such actions are of particular
concern to the creationist because of faith in the Creator and loyalty
to His Word. Many specific instructions are given in both the Old and
New Testament pertaining to treatment of the earth, of plants and of
animals. By analogical studies of God's Word, we can know of God's evident
wish to preserve the different and the unique, and we can know that
we should not pervert the earth from its own nature.
