Young-earth creationism has undergone a shift in emphasis toward building of historical models that incorporate Biblical and scientific evidence and the acceptance of scientific conclusions that were formerly rejected. The RATE Group admitted that massive amounts of radioactive decay occurred during earth history but proposed a period of accelerated decay during Noah’s Flood to fit the resulting history into a young-earth timeframe. Finding a mechanism for the acceleration and dealing with the… Expand
Pleistocene continental glaciers: a single ice age following a Genesis Flood or multiple ice ages?
I n t r o d u c t I o n Young-earth creationist Larry Vardiman (1993, 2009) has proposed that the continental glaciation that occurred during the Pleistocene Epoch in North America, Greenland,Expand
The effect of gender on the attitudes of undergraduates toward young-earth creationism after enrollment in an origins course
Many Christian students graduate from secondary schools and enter Christian colleges with worldviews that are unbiblical or contain unbiblical components, many of which stem from their beliefsExpand
Enhancing Teachers’ Awareness About Relations Between Science and Religion
AbstractEducators advocate that science education can help the development of more responsible worldviews when students learn not only scientific concepts, but also about science, or “nature ofExpand

Physical Mechanism for Reversals of the Earth's Magnetic Field During the Flood
Recent paleomagnetic data [1] strongly supports my hypothesis [2] that the Earth's magnetic field reversed itself rapidly during the Genesis flood. This paper shows specifically how convectionExpand
Reversals of the Earth’s Magnetic Field During the Genesis Flood
Strong convection in the Earth’s core during the Deluge would rapidly reverse the magnetic field while the fossil layers were being laid down. Afterwards the field would fluctuate for severalExpand
What Initiated the Flood Cataclysm
We report results from a parametric study of various weakening mechanisms that can occur in olivine aggregate materials to help understand how an episode of runaway subduction could be initiated. WeExpand
The Current Status of Baraminology
The creationist biosystematic method of baraminology has grown significantly in the past decade. Its conceptual foundations were discussed in the evolution/creation debates of the nineteenth century,Expand
THE CHIMPANZEE GENOME AND THE PROBLEM OF BIOLOGICAL SIMILARITY
TLDR
It is found that creationist genomics requires three important theories that still need to be developed before fruitful research can commence, and the most promising candidate for explaining biological similarity is a modified form of ReMine's message theory. Expand
