  • Book Chapter
    The Snowblitz
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    The Genesis flood provides the two ingredients necessary for an ice age. From this point on we can use basic meteorology to estimate the storm patterns and where ice sheets would develop.

  • Book Chapter

    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    After the Flood drained off the land, the world’s ocean and land temperatures were constantly changing as they strove toward the relative equilibrium we experience today.

    Accelerated melting would mark the end of the Ice Age.

  • Book Chapter
    Only One Ice Age
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    We often hear glacial geologists speak of numerous ice ages, as if it is certain. They hypothesize up to 30 different ones, each separated by interglacials, during the past 2.5 million years.

  • Book Chapter
    Where Was Man During the Ice Age?
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

  • Book Chapter
    Mammoths Thrive Early in the Post-Flood Ice Age
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    We have developed the post-Flood Ice Age model based on the climatic aftermath of the Genesis flood. Now we are in a position to delve into the mysteries of the woolly mammoth.

  • Book Chapter
    Were Siberian Mammoths Quick Frozen?
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    Despite its appeal, there is much evidence against the quick-freeze hypothesis.

    Preface
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    The bones, tusks, and especially carcasses of millions of woolly mammoths frozen in the tundra of Siberia have excited the imaginations of children and scientists for hundreds of years.

  • Technical Research Paper
    Ice Cores vs the Flood
    Aug. 1, 2004, pp. 58–61

    Show that ice core dating methods are not independent and open to significant reinterpretation. The root of the problem is the uncritical acceptance of the uniformitarian paradigm.

  • Semi-Technical Research Paper
    Long-age Puzzle of Thin Ice at the Edge of the Laurentide Ice Sheet
    Aug. 1, 2004, pp. 5–6

    The margin of the Laurentide Ice Sheet in North America was generally composed of lobes, possibly as the result of rapid movement or surges to the south.

  • The Story That Won’t Be Told
    Dec. 9, 2003

    Secular geologists believe that it a marked trail commemorating the Missoula flood’s path and explaining its significance needs to be set up from western Montana into northwest Oregon.

  • Semi-Technical Research Paper
    Paleocene Dinosaurs and the Reinforcement Syndrome
    Dec. 1, 2003, pp. 5–8

    Evolutionary scientists have proclaimed for years that the dinosaurs died out at the end of the Cretaceous, exactly 65 million years ago. This date has been considered an evolutionary fact of nature.

  • Magazine Article
    Neandertal Man—the Changing Picture
    Sept. 1, 2003, pp. 10–14

    Despite all the prejudice against including the Neandertals into Homo sapiens, even many evolutionists have become impressed with the evidence for Neandertal’s humanity.

  • Semi-Technical Research Paper
    Arthropods Supposedly Invaded Land 40 Million Years Earlier
    Aug. 1, 2003, pp. 3–4

    Researchers claim they have pushed back the appearance of arthropods on land by 40 million years within the uniformitarian timescale.

  • New Ice Core Records 120,000 Years?
    July 30, 2003

    A milestone in deep ice drilling occurred on Thursday, 17 July 2003. The deepest ice core in the Northern Hemisphere hit bedrock on the Greenland Ice Sheet at a depth of almost two miles.

  • Do Genetic Differences Disprove that Neandertals and Modern Humans Interbred?
    June 18, 2003

    New research results comparing the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have shown substantial divergence between Neandertals and modern humans.

  • Magazine Article
    In the Footsteps of Giants
    March 1, 2003, pp. 10–12

    It seems difficult to explain the formation of dinosaur tracks during the Flood. A closer inspection of the details, however, demonstrates that the Flood is a more reasonable explanation.
