Remembering Spillover Erosion of Grand Canyon

Dr. Steve Austin , et. al. • Sept. 9, 2020

No Replacement of Darwin

No Replacement of Darwin

Stefan Frello • April 25, 2018

Jeanson takes on a formidable task: To show that the theory of evolution is wrong, and to replace it with biblical creation. To make it short: Jeanson fails.

The Case for Cosmological Redshifts

The Case for Cosmological Redshifts

Dr. Danny R. Faulkner • March 14, 2018

On the Creationist View on mtDNA

Stefan Frello • Aug. 23, 2017

Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson claims to have documented a recent origin of humans, using mitochondrial DNA. A reader questions the results.

Debunking the Debunkers

Debunking the Debunkers

Jeffrey P. Tomkins • Feb. 8, 2017

Taken together, genomic data for both the alleged fusion and cryptic centromere sites refute the concept of fusion in a human-chimpanzee common ancestor.

Scriptural Geology, Then and Now

Scriptural Geology, Then and Now

Warren H. Johns • Nov. 30, 2016

The place of the biblical Flood in the geological record remains one of the most hotly debated issues among creationist geologists today.

Does Natural Selection Exist?

Does Natural Selection Exist?

Dr. Nathaniel T. Jeanson • Aug. 7, 2013

How did the modern diversity of life arise from the created kinds of Genesis 1 and from the kinds taken on board the Ark? Did natural selection play a role?

The Importance of an Historical Adam

The Importance of an Historical Adam

Simon Turpin • May 29, 2013

In secular culture it is common to view the biblical history of Adam as a story, myth, or a parable but this is now also becoming the standard interpretation for many within the evangelical community.

Did Death of Any Kind Exist Before the Fall?

Did Death of Any Kind Exist Before the Fall?

Simon Turpin • April 3, 2013

Death, whether animal or human, physical or spiritual, is a consequence of man’s disobedience toward his Creator and an intrusion into His “very good” creation.

Mammalian Ark Kinds

Mammalian Ark Kinds

Dr. Jean Lightner • Oct. 31, 2012

Information on the class Mammalia was evaluated in an attempt to get a realistic estimate of what mammalian kinds would have been represented on the Ark.

Time to Abandon Postmodernism: Living a New Way

Dr. Andrew Fabich • Oct. 12, 2011

In Western civilization, the Mosaic generation and those that are younger are leaving religious institutions en masse while embracing spirituality nonetheless at unprecedented rates.

Twidale and Bourne’s comments are appreciated by this author who respects their professional and long-standing experience in the field of modern geomorphology.

Toward an Accurate Model of Variation in DNA

Toward an Accurate Model of Variation in DNA

Mitchel Soltys • March 2, 2011

The Bible’s description of created kinds implies an information model which uses variables. The findings in this paper show that a model which uses variables forms a basis for understanding biology.

Inherit the Wind

Inherit the Wind

Dr. Jerry Bergman • March 31, 2010

Although the play was widely believed to be an accurate synopsis of the historical trial, often called the Trial of the Century, it grossly distorted the actual events of history.

Fraud and Forgery in Paleoanthropology

Fraud and Forgery in Paleoanthropology

Dr. Jerry Bergman • Dec. 23, 2009

A review of the history of paleoanthropology leads to the conclusion that the discipline is far less objective than that for physics, chemistry, or even biology.

Fungi from the Biblical Perspective

Fungi from the Biblical Perspective

Ira Loucks • Oct. 21, 2009

Fungi are intriguing organisms with a wealth of diversity in their morphology and ecology. Determining the fundamentals of their biology from a biblical perspective is a daunting but achievable task.

The Natural History of Retroviruses

The Natural History of Retroviruses

Yingguang Liu , et. al. • Sept. 30, 2009

Evolutionists assume that all endogenous retroviruses are remnants of germ line infection by exogenous retroviruses.

More Abundant than Stars

More Abundant than Stars

Dr. Georgia Purdom , et. al. • Sept. 23, 2009

Microbes form a life-sustaining organosubstrate on earth and contribute to our understanding of geology, ecology, and biology.

Genetics of Coat Color II

Genetics of Coat Color II

Dr. Jean Lightner • June 10, 2009

Recognizing the population bottleneck which occurred in land animals at the time of the Flood, it is clear that genetic variation was once more limited than it is today.

Toward An Understanding of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi

Toward An Understanding of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi

Tom Hennigan • Feb. 18, 2009

As we seek to discover the intent of the Designer, we can enhance our stewardship of the land by using this symbiosis to re-establish polluted and disturbed landscapes and grow sustainable crops.

There Is No Darwin Conspiracy

Todd Charles Wood • Jan. 28, 2009

Some contend that Charles Darwin plagiarized his theory of evolution. Whether you agree with the man or not, however, the evidence suggests the idea is his.

Genetics of Coat Color I

Genetics of Coat Color I

Dr. Jean Lightner • Oct. 8, 2008

Given the number of alleles within baramins, much of the diversity at this locus must have developed since the genetic bottleneck at the Flood where only a single breeding pair was preserved.

Evolution on Answers Research Journal

Neo-Darwinian evolution is the ruling paradigm in all of secular science. Universal common descent with modification by mutation and natural selection over millions of years pervades all biological and paleontological scientific fields. But Scripture explicitly teaches recent, divine creation of all life. All creatures were created by God originally perfect, “front-loaded” with massive genetic diversity according to their kinds (which is usually equated to the current biological classification of the Family level).

According to evolutionary theory, mutation and natural selection have produced all life forms from a common single-celled organism. But instead of showing evidence of Darwinian evolution, organisms show evidence of losing genetic diversity via mutation, natural selection, and speciation. Observable science supports the biblical model of created kinds that have lost genetic information, due to the fall and other mechanisms since, and contradicts molecules-to-man evolution.

The aim of these research papers in Answers Research Journal (ARJ) is to consider evolution from the perspective of the recent creation within a biblical framework and provide evidence that refutes molecules-to-man evolution. These professional, peer-reviewed papers address issues related to evolution in the fields of biology, genetics, microbiology, immunology, and other relevant scientific fields. Our journal considers evolution in light of creation, the created kinds (baraminology), the fall, paleontology, anthropology, mutation and natural selection, and more.
