The thorns on acacias got me to thinking about how traditionally all thorns and thistles have been viewed as results of the curse on Adam for his sin. In my prior article I looked at the dilemma that mimicry in organisms can be for young earth creationists. I want to share a brief natural history of acacias with you and then pose the question, what did acacia trees look like in the prelapsarian world (ie. before the fall of Adam?
Recent studies (see references below) of multiple intact fossilized forests provide a very detailed account of the presence of an seemingly alien forest that was found multiple locations across the entire globe at some point in the past. A forest completely devoid of the presence of any flowering plants such as oaks, maples and beech […]
This is a follow-up to my previous post on the 15 juvenile dinosaur fossils found in a nest. In that post I mentioned one of the explanations by flood geologists (ie. young earth creationists) for the presence of fossilized dinosaur eggs in the fossil record is that dinosaurs somehow escaped the initial stages of […]
This is the first in what will be a series of posts on the “apparent age” or “appearance of age” theory as an explanation for some of the features of the earth and cosmos. There is a long tradition of those that have espoused various forms of apparent age including probably the most famous proponent […]
I have now been following the current creation debate intensively for a decade. During that time I have participated in hundreds of on-line discussions of the topic, have gathered a collection of more than 200 books on the topic and generated a library that includes over 50,000 pages of material including journal articles, copies of […]
Our perceptions of the age of an object are frequently based on our common experience but I have found that for many people those common experiences are of little help when it comes to examining objects for which a person has no experience at all. A couple of years ago I had an interesting experience […]
The following example is derived from several articles involving sediment cores from explosion craters (maars) and their subsequent analysis (See refs at end). I will assume little geological background in writing this example. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Summary: Pollen profiles from a 46 meter core from the center of a small explosion crater in South Central France suggest […]
Back when there was a significant dispute between Answers in Genesis (AIG) and Creation Ministries International (CMI) I wondered where the creation science movement may be headed. At the time I thought it would be interesting to look at who the people are behind these organizations right now and see if the backgrounds of those […]
