The Philosophy of Science 4: A Brief History of Science from the Scientific Revolution to Modern Physics
This paper traces the history of science from 1687 to today. It mentions the philosophies of deism and determinism and discusses modern-day quantum mechanics and chaos theory.
We explore the effect of cosmic voids on the light-travel-time-problem (LTTP) in a young age creationist (YAC) cosmology.
Geoffrey and Margaret Burbidge played a key role in slowing the acceptance of dark matter. Therein lies a cautionary tale for scientists.
Inerrancy and Biblical Authority: How and Why Old-Earth Inerrantists Are Unintentionally Undermining Inerrancy
The old-earth signers of the CSBInerrancy unintentionally violated their own principles of interpretation and unintentionally undermined the inerrancy and the authority of Scripture.
An Evaluation of Astronomical Young-Age Determination Methods 2: Solar, Stellar, Galactic, and Extragalactic
Dr. Danny Faulkner evaluates 23 arguments for recent origin for the sun, stars, and galaxies.

A holistic approach which accounts for biblical, biological, and philosophical truths must conclude that the unborn represent human beings with full personhood.
In conjunction with efforts to resolve the light travel time problem, creationists have in recent decades proposed a variety of new cosmological models.
We ought not to dismiss the observational science for dark matter over fears of the misuse of dark matter in historical science.
Dr. Snelling documents the methodology and history of determining present decay constants and half-lives of parent radioisotopes used for dating methods.
We find that small variations in galaxy density as a function of redshift do exist, and are not due to the Malmquist bias.
Dr. Danny Faulkner proposes that Genesis 1:1 is an introductory encapsulation that establishes a foundation for building a biblical model of astronomy.
Revisiting an Iconic Argument for Milankovitch Climate Forcing: Should the “Pacemaker of the Ice Ages” Paper Be Retracted? Part 1
This paper, the first in a series, demonstrates that much of the Hays et al. paper, as originally presented, is invalid.
This contribution is designed to document the radioisotope dating data for groups of chondrites, stony achondrites, pallasites and mesosiderites, and irons.
Over the last 80 years numerous determinations have been made of the 147Sm half-life.
This paper documents radioisotope dating for meteorites, achondrites, angrites, aubrites, mesosiderites, and irons to further discuss significance of the data.
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.
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.
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.
The cosmogony proposed is consistent with all creationist understandings of the biblical texts and has no light-travel time problem.
If the Lu-Hf dating method has been calibrated against the U-Pb “gold standard” with its own uncertainties, then it cannot be absolute.
Discerning Tyrants from Usurpers: A Statistical Baraminological Analysis of Tyrannosauroidea Yielding the First Dinosaur Holobaramin
In this study, I analyzed a theropod dinosaur group, Tyrannosauroidea, through the use of statistical baraminology.
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.
In 2013 D. R. Faulkner proposed what he says is a new solution to the biblical creationist starlight travel-time problem.
I contend that expansion of space is of itself not tenable as a mechanism for the expansion of the universe.
From various problems in cosmology a need has developed to postulate the existence of unknown types of energy and matter from the dark side.
In spite of numerous attempts for over 60 years to determine the 87Rb half-life and decay constant, there is still no consensus.
Circular Reasoning in the Dating of Deep Seafloor Sediments and Ice Cores: The Orbital Tuning Method
The different dating systems are calibrated to one another: dates assigned to the seafloor sediments are used to date the ice cores, and vice versa.
A Photon Reference Frame and Distant Starlight: Analyzing Ideas from Gerald L. Schroeder’s The Science of God
This paper reviews claims made by Gerald L. Schroeder in relation to the nature of light and the age of the universe.
Astronomers have developed an elaborate, physically robust evolutionary theory to explain the abundances that we see throughout the universe. While this theory may be explanatory, it has no predictive
Meteorites have been used to date the earth with a 4.55 ± 0.07 Ga Pb-Pb isochron called the geochron.
Radiohalos in Multiple, Sequentially Intruded Phases of the Bathurst Batholith, NSW, Australia: Evidence for Rapid Granite Formation during the Flood
There is evidence for rapid granite formation during the Flood.
Many recent creationists believe that the second law of thermodynamics came into being as a result of the Fall or the curse. I argue that this is not supported by Scripture nor science.
Dr. Faulkner examines the claims of one proponent of plasma astronomy, Donald Scott.
Danny R. Faulkner, AiG–U.S., lays groundwork for the beginning of a new solution to the light travel time problem.
Some recent creationists have attempted to address the light travel time problem indirectly with an implied appeal to a small universe.
Danny R. Faulkner, AiG–U.S., examines the Dodwell hypothesis, that the earth underwent a catastrophic impact in 2345 BC that altered its axial tilt and then gradually recovered by about 1850.
Although the term uniformitarianism was not introduced until 1832, the concepts that Lyell so cleverly fused together had already been operating in the nascent discipline of geology for some decades
On both large and small cosmic scales there is a diverse range of trends, patterns, and phenomena that beckon some kind of explanation.
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.
Of the nine terms associated with uniformitarianism, seven can be replaced or eliminated, which refutes the accusation that diluvialists do not understand uniformitarianism.

Based on the likely increase in precipitation rate and frequency of storms following the Genesis Flood, glaciers thousands of feet thick would have developed in a few hundred years.
A review of some recent well-documented cases of intolerance in the cosmology field illustrates a common problem in science. Many relate to the Big Bang theory.
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.
