Excellent Introduction to Creation Science  Dec 4, 2009
In 1982 What Is Creation Science? (WCS) by Henry M. Morris & Gary E. Parker
appeared. It endeavored to explain a very generalized scientific creation
world view to a lay audience. Parker, a biologist, wrote the first part
dealing with the life sciences and Morris, a hydraulics engineer, scribed
the section on the physical sciences. This book presented the case for
creation without reference to Biblical arguments and citations. The
Institute for Creation Research (ICR), at that time, was promoting its
two model approach which compared and contrasted the evidence for the
creation and evolution models to origins. WCS and the earlier more technical
Scientific Creationism (general edition) (1974) were published years before
the rise of the Intelligent Design (ID) movement. ICR's two model approach
and ID both strove to decouple Biblical bias from their creation/design
arguments. WCS is filled with quotes of evolutionists who themselves point
out the weaknesses of their own theory. These quotations and resulting
discussions were made to show the merits of the creation model from a
strictly scientific perspective and to allow for a wider readership by
secular audiences. While much in the earlier volume is similar to Paul
Gardner's The New Creationism (TNC) there is a significant difference in emphasis.

TNC is specifically geared to the Christian market and includes many Biblical
references as it sets forth the Biblical view of origins emphasizing the Creation,
the Fall, the Flood and post-Flood eras. TNC is written in a lay friendly manner
and while confrontation with evolutionary theory is inevitable it is de-emphasized
in favor of establishing a Biblical creationary overview. Garner writes, "In this
book, I will, where necessary, offer criticisms of conventional theories; however,
my main aim is to summarize the work of modern-day scholars who are seeking to
restore the biblical foundations of the scientific enterprise and build positive
creationist theories in the field of origins." (p. 15) What are some of the
differences between these two books? In the Morris & Parker book much space is
given to the importance of the second law of thermodynamics as a major hindrance
to macro evolutionary theory (WCS, pp. 156-188) while in The New Creationism the
"law of entropy" is mentioned once, (p. 37). TNC does strongly present the importance
of the curse (Genesis 3) on creation (pp. 155-164). Unlike WCS, Garner's book
involves not just recent creationary research unavailable in 1982, but details
very specific creation theories that can be confirmed or falsified. It discusses
the original time dilation theory of Russell Humphrey, Catastrophic Plate Tectonics,
the RATE research, Kurt Wise's floating forest ideas, Michael Oard's Ice Age studies,
the growing discipline of Baraminology and many other innovative creation concepts.
Garner believes these are the most promising of recent creationary proposals.
He wisely cautions, "Although I have tried to summarize what I regard as the best
research at the time of writing, not all the ideas in this book will stand the
test of time. Some of these theories will have to be revised or abandoned while
Scripture remains true for all time." (p. 16)

TNC starts with cosmological questions like the Big Bang theory, and proceeds to
the formation of galaxies, stars and the solar system and Earth, It discusses.
the issue of the Biblical time frame verses the deep time paradigm of the secular
science establishment with critiques of radiometric dating, origin of life studies,
uniformitarianism, and evolution evidences. It discusses Flood catastrophism,
the fossil record, post Flood events such as the Ice Age, distribution of mankind,
the origin of races, and other issues.

Garner, who holds advanced degrees in both biology and geology, writes in a very
easy to understand style that many non-specialist readers will appreciate. This
volume is good introduction to current creationary thinking. It has numerous
helpful diagrams and illustrations, bibliography, website listings, index, extensive
endnotes and numerous commendations.
 
REAL Foundations  Oct 5, 2009
Why develop Creationism on a Biblical foundation when one can just as effectively develop it on a foundation consisting entirely of cornflakes soaked in grape juice?
