HOW can stumps floating upright in water and being left in the mud in. that position be explained? Yet, this is a requirement if the growth in the place of these stumps is questioned. Would hollow stumps that have their centers of gravity in the base of the trunk adjust to a horizontal position as their tissues become saturated with water?
WHEN geological science began to take the interest of many during the Renaissance, the Genesis flood was generally invoked to explain the formation of coal. Some of these early studies were well executed, and the interpretations based on Flood geology were sound and reasonable. If this trend had continued, it is most likely that the questions concerning the source and formation of coal would be well answered today, but such is not the case. Much uncertainty and speculation still characterize coal geology. Little progress has been made in the past century. . .
THE three angels' messages of Revelation 14 are considered to be the last great warnings for our world. They began to sound in the 1830's and 1840's. William Miller brought to the attention of much of the Western world the prospect of the Lord's soon return. . .
THE concept of uniformity has delayed the progress of geological science be cause, as we believe, the past history of the earth has experienced one major catastrophe episode that has been unrecognized.
DURING the Dark Ages the state of science was both at a low level and static. To the modern mind it is difficult to understand how the peoples of those times could be so devoid of curiosity, so ignorant of the role of direct observation in the establishment of truth. Arguments over the number of teeth in the mouth of a horse led the participants to study the classics of Aristotle, Galen, et cetera, but no one thought to look in the mouth of a horse!
The rich dimensions of human life, both physically and in those areas that penetrate to the essence of what life is about, reveal something about the Designer. No one was around at the origin of life, so all theories about it are really not susceptible to proof. But we can find evidences for the different ideas about origins. Creation by a divine Creator is the only theory that takes into account all that life is.
