The Trustworthiness of Scripture in Areas Relating to Natural Science
Walter L. Bradley and Roger Olsen

In this paper we would like to focus on the interpretation of the Hebrew words "yom" and "bara/asah" as they are used in the early chapters of Genesis to describe the time frame and mechanism of creation. A careful examination of both biblical and scientific data will be summarized. A critique of the current models based on this data will be made leading to our summary of how at present we think one may best harmonize all of the available information.

The Church of Darwin
Phillip E. Johnson

In response to a Kansas state board of education decision, Berkeley Law professor Phillip E. Johnson lashes out in this Wall St. Journal article: "Evolution is having serious trouble with the evidence--but its proponents don't want an honest debate?."

The Code Word
Robert and Patricia Mondore

The most recent discoveries in the field of microbiology have revealed DNA to be a highly sophisticated and encoded language. The Bible refers to the Creator as the Word of God. Is DNA really an encoded message from our Creator? There are those who consider DNA as evidence of evolution claiming that its ubiquitousness proves all life must have evolved from a single source. Using their own logic there is a far stronger case that the highly encoded messages found in DNA could only have come into existence through intelligent design. The fact that it is found in every life form is proof that all life was formed by a single Designer.

The Designed 'Just So' Universe
Walter L. Bradley, Ph.D.

This article provides a clear indication of what is meant by design and then summarizes the factual basis from cosmology that our universe is indeed uniquely designed as a habitat for life in general and humans in particular.

 Designer Genes
Robert and Patricia Mondore

The discovery of a city clearly points to the blueprints and design of its architects. Similar logic was used by William Paley, author of "Natural Theology" who used the illustration of finding a watch in the road as proof of a watchmaker. Scientists have now discovered a similar evidence of design within the microscopic world. When one discovers the complexity of the cell world, and the encoded language of DNA there is only one logical explanation for its existence; God is the Builder of everything.

Evidence of God in Human Physiology
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

A cursory examination of human physiology reveals: 1) the complexity of man and what it suggests about man's origins, 2) the efficient and versatile operation of man compared with machine, and 3) the depth of our ignorance about how man's physiological systems operate.

Evolution's Big Bang
Dr. Ray Bohlin

The Cambrian explosion of life has long befuddled evolutionists. New data have only deepened the mystery and caused a critical rethinking of cherished evolutionary concepts.

 Evolution, Genes and Morality
Raymond Bohlin, Ph.D.

Sociobiology claims to explain the origin and meaning of all human and animal social behavior in terms of genetics and natural selection. This view is inadequate to explain the complexities of human nature but curiously agrees with theism that man?s basic behavior is ultimately selfish.


The Five Crises in Evolutionary Theory
Dr. Ray Bohlin

5 crises in evolutionary theory are discussed: 1) the unsubstantiation of a Darwinian mechanism of evolution, 2)The total failure of origin of life studies to produce a workable model, 3) The inability of evolutionary mechanism to explain the origin of complex adaptations, 4) The bankruptcy of the blind watchmaker hypothesis, and 5) The biological evidence that the rule in nature is morphological stability over time and not constant change.

 The Grand Canyon and the Age of the Earth
Ray Bohlin, Ph.D.

Young-earth creationists need to be able to explain earth?s geological features as the result of a year-long flood only a few thousand years ago. The Grand Canyon is one of the few areas of the world that allows them to attempt to show that their model fits reality.

  Homology: A Concept in Crisis
Jonathan Wells and Paul Nelson

Patterns of similarity (homologies) among diverse groups of organisms gave Darwin one of the key lines of evidence for his theory of common descent. Recently, the neo-Darwinian interpretation of homology has been powerfully challenged by new data.

The study of human evolution suffers from too few fossils, tunnel world view vision, powerful personalities, and too much media misinformation. This article tries to sort out the data from a creationist perspective.

 The Incompleteness of Scientific Naturalism
Darwinism: Science or Philosophy

Is there anything that can happen in the world that would indicate unmistakably that God had acted? The existence of computational problems for which discovering the solution is intractable, but for which checking the solution once it is in hand is tractable, raises the possibility of being able to detect divine action with full empirical certainty. (Note, this paper was written in 1992 before quantum computation became widely discussed. If it were being written today, it would need to take this development into account.

 Intelligent Design FAQ

New frequently asked questions section of Access Research Network's site. Deals with common questions like, "What is Intelligent Design?" and "But doesn't Intelligent Design refer to something supernatural? Isn't science supposed to restrict itself to the natural world?"

 The Origin of the Universe
Rich Milne

What is the newest evidence for the Big Bang? The cosmic background radiation is exactly what was expected if the universe began as an immensely hot event 10-20 billion years ago. But the universe that was created is "just-right" for life. Dozens of factors are exquisitely fine-tuned for life to be able to exist, at least on our planet.

Our "Tailor-made" Universe: New Scientific Study Begs the Philosophical Question, "Who's the tailor?"
Nancy Pearcey

Cosmology is at a surprising crossroads. The evidence for design in the physical universe is so strong that cosmologists today openly discuss philosophical questions, as Nancy Pearcey shows in this September 2, 2000 World article.

Response to Arthur M. Shapiro
Darwinism: Science or Philosophy

Arthur Shapiro faults creationists generally and Phillip Johnson in particular for thinking that Darwinism entails naturalism/atheism. Shapiro is right as far as he goes, but he doesn't go nearly far enough. The point is not whether Darwinism logically compels atheism, but whether Darwinism makes atheism that much more plausible. It does. Given Darwinism, there is no reason to think God had anything to do with biology, thus no reason to think that God has been active in creation, and thus no reason to think that God exists. One can remain a theist, of course, but such a theism then becomes a sheer believism, or what is sometimes called fideism
