Population Control: Evidence Of A Perfect Creation
E. Norbert Smith, B.S.
All animals have the ability
to increase their numbers at an astonishing rate. In spite of this fact,
animal populations remain relatively constant. The Bible teaches that
before the Fall creation was perfect and without predation. This implies
an intrinsic population controlling factor. Perhaps this intrinsic population
control is still present and working today, and maybe Darwin's checks
are unneeded. If so, this is another reason why scientists should turn
from evolution to creation in seeking to account for living things.
The Origin Of Life On Earth
Gary E. Parker, M.S.
The DNA-protein relationship
is analyzed in relation to the origin of life. Evidence for the modern
evolutionary theory of spontaneous generation and evidence for creation
are analyzed. Definition and scientific adequacy of these two views
are considered. The work of Miller, Fox, and Oparin is reviewed. Concepts
of time, chance, and chemical selection are evaluated and the concept
of "imposed relationships" is introduced as evidence supporting
Creation And The Origin Of
William Stroud, M.S.
The origin of sex from the
standpoint of evolution is extremely unlikely while at the same time
the existence of sex is a strong evidence favoring special creationism.
Should Evolution Be Taught?
John N. Moore, Ed.D.
Students, teachers, and
parents encounter emphatic presentation of organic evolution as fact.
An objective pattern of opposition, based on scientific work, to this
type of teaching of organic evolution is provided.
Two theories of evolution:
the general and special, are explicated. Each theory of evolution is
examined with regard to reasonable predictions that can be stated within
limits of the normal scientific viewpoint. Conclusions are reached that
the fossil record (the historical record) cannot be used to support
the general theory of evolution; there are no intermediate or transitional
forms in the fossil record.
Breeding experiments with
plants and animals afford extensive data, usable in support of the special
theory of evolution; however, to avoid equivocation of terms the phenomena
involved might just as well be called "genetic variation."
ALL known, observable changes of living things are always WITHIN recognizable
limits of variation of major groups of plants and animals. Thus there
is empirical support for the special theory of evolution only.
The general theory of evolution,
at most, should be optional for a science course, while the special
theory of evolution is an appropriately required area of study to exemplify
characteristic scientific procedures and findings.
Parathyroid Hormone Functions:
Oscar L. Brauer, Ph.D.
The experimental history
of Parathyroid gland function is briefly reviewed. Complex coordination
between parathormone and vitamin D in the metabolism of calcium phosphate
is traced in the blood, kidney, intestinal tract, and bone. Interplay
of checks and balances is presented as evidence supporting man's origin
by divine special creation.
