    Why Live in Siberia?

    What drew millions of woolly mammoths to the far north where the winters are currently so fiercely cold and the summers so dangerously boggy? And what did they eat while they were there?

  • Book Chapter
    The Mystery of the Ice Age
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    Although it is evident there was an Ice Age, scientists run into a blank wall when they try to provide the cause. They run into mystery after mystery.

  • Book Chapter
    A Mammoth Number of Mammoth Hypotheses
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    Efforts to understand the mysteries associated with the woolly mammoth have led to an abundance of hypotheses — all with mammoth problems.

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

    The worst problem uniformitarian scientists encounter with the extinction of the Siberian woolly mammoths is that they disappeared not just in Siberia but everywhere at about the same time.

  • Book Chapter
    The Genesis Flood Caused the Ice Age
    Oct. 1, 2004 from Frozen in Time

    The two ingredients required for an Ice Age, cool temperatures and tons of snow, were dramatically fulfilled immediately after the Genesis flood.

  • 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
    The Peak of the Ice Age
    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.

  • Book Chapter
    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.

  • Magazine Article
    Dead Whales: Telling Tales?
    Sept. 1, 2004, pp. 10–14

    “We knew it was a great find,” said paleontologist Leonard Brand about the fossil whales he saw in Peru in 1999, 350 km (200 miles) south of Lima, the capital.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Technical Research Paper
    Wild Ice-Core Interpretations by Uniformitarian Scientists
    April 1, 2002, pp. 45–47

    Uniformitarian scientists derive many more ‘annual layers’ in the Greenland ice cores than creationists because of their assumed old age time scale.

  • Research Paper
    A Uniformitarian Paleo-Environmental Dilemma at Clarkia, Idaho, USA
    April 1, 2002, pp. 3–4

    A farmer digging a snowmobile course accidentally unearthed one of the most remarkably-preserved plant fossil localities in the world.

  • Research Paper
    'Snowball Earth'—A Problem for the Supposed Origin of Multicellular Animals
    April 1, 2002, pp. 6–9

    For creationists, the rocks and their associated ‘glacial diagnostic features’ can be explained very easily. They are the result of gigantic submarine landslides in a warm ocean in the Genesis Flood.

  • Technical Research Paper
    Field Studies in the Columbia River Basalt, Northwest USA
    April 1, 2002, pp. 103–110

    Taken together, the features of the Columbia River basalts suggest that they were mostly extruded and emplaced during the Late Abative Phase of the Recessive Stage of the Flood.

  • Technical Research Paper
    Dealing Carefully with the Data
    April 1, 2002, pp. 82–85

    More information is provided from the ocean floor on the uniformitarian assumptions that undergird his belief in plate tectonics.
