Testing a Flat-Earth Prediction: Is the Moon’s Light Cooling?
Flat-earthers often claim that moonlight has a cooling property. I present the results of three independent experiments that test this claim.
Creationists frequently quote Hubble to the effect that he inserted the cosmological principle to avoid stark realties about the universe that his data implied.
A Test for Quasar Cosmological Redshifts
The hypothesis that extragalactic redshifts are cosmological is strongly supported. I encourage fellow recent creationists to abandon their doubts that extragalactic redshifts are cosmological.
The Case for Cosmological Redshifts
Many recent creationists appear to oppose the Hubble relation, the expansion of the universe, and/or cosmological redshifts of quasars.
Are Old Supernova Remnants Really Missing? Re-Evaluating a Well-Known Young-Universe Argument
There are old supernova remnants and stage three supernova remnants have been identified. Therefore, this may not be a good argument for recent origin.

Despite its popularity, the Milankovitch hypothesis has many problems that are acknowledged even by secular scientists (Cronin 2010, 130–139).
Revisiting an Iconic Argument for Milankovitch Climate Forcing: Should the “Pacemaker of the Ice Ages” Paper Be Retracted? Part 2
Part I of this series presented a number of serious problems with the Pacemaker paper. It is necessary to also understand the Blackman-Tukey (B-T) method.
New Method to Assess the Luminosity Function of Galaxies
We find that small variations in galaxy density as a function of redshift do exist, and are not due to the Malmquist bias.
Thoughts on the rāqîa‘ and a Possible Explanation for the Cosmic Microwave Background
Dr. Danny Faulkner proposes that Genesis 1:1 is an introductory encapsulation that establishes a foundation for building a biblical model of astronomy.

This contribution is designed to document the radioisotope dating data for groups of chondrites, stony achondrites, pallasites and mesosiderites, and irons.
The Blurring Distinction between Asteroids and Comets
Whether there is a continuum on which our older conception of asteroids and comets are extremes or if there still is a gap between them is not entirely clear.
Can One Astronomically Date the Flood within the Hydroplate Model?
Dr. Danny Faulkner analyzes Dr. Walt Brown’s determination of the date of the Flood within his hydroplate model using the orbits of two comets.
Speculation on Redshift in a Created Universe1
Dr. Hartnett speculates about the idea that what we observe in the universe is not in equilibrium; that is, the state of the universe is in a transient state.
A Biblical Creationist Cosmogony
The cosmogony proposed is consistent with all creationist understandings of the biblical texts and has no light-travel time problem.
Radioisotope Dating of Meteorites: III. The Eucrites (Basaltic Achondrites)
This third paper documents the radioisotope dating data for more meteorites, so as to continue the discussion of the significance of these data.
Response to: “Critique: Faulkner’s Miraculous Translation of Light Model Would Leave Evidence”
I am delighted that my friend, John Hartnett, has responded with some objections to my proposal for a new solution to the light travel time problem.
Critique: Faulkner’s Miraculous Translation of Light Model Would Leave Evidence
In 2013 D. R. Faulkner proposed what he says is a new solution to the biblical creationist starlight travel-time problem.
Expansion of Space—A Dark Science
I contend that expansion of space is of itself not tenable as a mechanism for the expansion of the universe.
A Missing Neutrino—Dark Radiation
From various problems in cosmology a need has developed to postulate the existence of unknown types of energy and matter from the dark side.

Meteorites have been used to date the earth with a 4.55 ± 0.07 Ga Pb-Pb isochron called the geochron.
Comments on the Cosmic Microwave Background
The big bang model is contrary to the Bible and the recent creation model. Since in our view the big bang never happened, the CMB requires some alternate explanation.
Did the Moon Appear as Blood on the Night of the Crucifixion?
Assuming that Peter’s statement about the moon being turned to blood was a reference to the Crucifixion, it is plausible that unusual atmospheric conditions at that time were responsible.

On both large and small cosmic scales there is a diverse range of trends, patterns, and phenomena that beckon some kind of explanation.
Anisotropic Synchrony Convention—A Solution to the Distant Starlight Problem
Clear biblical teaching is that the universe is only a few thousand years old, so we should only be able to see objects within a radius of 6,000 light years.
Mars, a Testament to Catastrophe
The unlikely geographic relationship between these gigantic features suggests a cause and effect relationship between them. This implies a global Martian catastrophe comparable to the Genesis Flood.
An Apology and Unification Theory for the Reconciliation of Physical Matter and Metaphysical Cognizance
Because one is tangible and the other intangible, the physical and metaphysical are generally treated separately. But this dichotomy is illogical.
