A Test for Quasar Cosmological Redshifts

A Test for Quasar Cosmological Redshifts

Dr. Danny R. Faulkner • March 21, 2018

The Case for Cosmological Redshifts

The Case for Cosmological Redshifts

Dr. Danny R. Faulkner • March 14, 2018

Many recent creationists appear to oppose the Hubble relation, the expansion of the universe, and/or cosmological redshifts of quasars.

The Stegosaur Engravings at Ta Prohm

The Stegosaur Engravings at Ta Prohm

David Woetzel • Sept. 13, 2017

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.

The Case for Dark Matter

The Case for Dark Matter

Dr. Danny R. Faulkner • March 22, 2017

We ought not to dismiss the observational science for dark matter over fears of the misuse of dark matter in historical science.

Debunking the Debunkers

Debunking the Debunkers

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.

Speculation on Redshift in a Created Universe1

Dr. John G. Hartnett • Feb. 11, 2015

Parasitology and Creation

Parasitology and Creation

Dr. Matthew E. Ingle • Feb. 4, 2015

As we learn more about parasites, which don’t seem to be “good” design, we will understand better how the parasitic lifestyle resulted from the Fall.

A Biblical Creationist Cosmogony

A Biblical Creationist Cosmogony

Dr. John G. Hartnett • Jan. 14, 2015

The cosmogony proposed is consistent with all creationist understandings of the biblical texts and has no light-travel time problem.

Expansion of Space—A Dark Science

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

A Missing Neutrino—Dark Radiation

Dr. John G. Hartnett • Sept. 24, 2014

Comments on the Cosmic Microwave Background

Comments on the Cosmic Microwave Background

Dr. Danny R. Faulkner • March 19, 2014

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.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics and the Curse

The Second Law of Thermodynamics and the Curse

Dr. Danny R. Faulkner • Nov. 13, 2013

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.

Does Natural Selection Exist?

Does Natural Selection Exist?

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

The Importance of an Historical Adam

The Importance of an Historical Adam

Simon Turpin • May 29, 2013

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.

Geomorphology of Uluṟu, Australia

Geomorphology of Uluṟu, Australia

Ken Patrick • June 9, 2010

A Australian inselberg, Uluṟu, is an interesting geological feature in that its geomorphology is still a matter of controversy among conventional geologists.

A Proposed Bible-Science Perspective on Global Warming

A Proposed Bible-Science Perspective on Global Warming

Rod Martin • May 26, 2010

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.

Mars, a Testament to Catastrophe

Mars, a Testament to Catastrophe

Charles Creager, Jr. • July 23, 2008

Catastrophic Granite Formation

Catastrophic Granite Formation

Dr. Andrew A. Snelling • Feb. 6, 2008

The timescale for the generation of granitic magmas and their subsequent intrusion, crystallization, and cooling as plutons is no longer incompatible with the biblical time frames.

Proceedings of the Microbe Forum, June 2007

Dr. Joe Francis , et. al. • Jan. 9, 2008

For many years the roles of microbes as part of God’s wonderful design have been neglected. Perhaps it is because many people associate microbes as the cause of death, disease, and suffering.
