There appears to be no persuasive evidence that the atmosphere has ever differed substantially from its present composition. The presence of oxygen in the earth's original atmosphere would have a dramatic inhibitory effect on the synthesis and accumulation of organic molecules and would virtually rule out the possibility that life arose in this way.

Major tektite falls in Australia in strata as young as 5700 years old according to radiocarbon dating have called in question both the fission-track and the K-Ar methods of dating which assign these identical tektites an age of about 700,000 years. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
Yes, the Christian may very well have time for research. Because of his sense of urgency and because he considers all his resources as valuable gifts and not to be wasted, the Christian will be more careful about his reasons for research. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
The Third National Creation Science Conference offered much excellent material, but the creationist movement must set and follow the highest scientific standards and screen out questionable or needlessly controversial material if it is to gain the attention and full respect of sympathetic non-creationists. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
The Mars Viking Landing failed to find evidence for life on Mars. The Lander found carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere but no organic material in the Martian soil. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
A review of the book, How Life Began. The view presented is a kind of theistic evolution. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
A review of two articles: On the Survival of Paleoforms, and The Tempo of Geomorphic Change. The scientific data of both papers indicate that much greater caution is warranted in approaching questions regarding the length of time involved in the past history of the earth. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
Similarities in structure, or homologies, are what one would expect if all of life had been designed by a single Creator. Homologies are not evidence for evolution. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 2.
It may be surprising to some students of the Bible that the translation and meaning of the opening words of the Bible are disputed. For 2,000 years the first verse of the Bible has been officially translated into Western languages with the familiar words, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Now three authorized versions of the Jewish, Roman Catholic, and Protestant communities translate the first verse of the Bible differently.
Several scientists have acknowledged that the evidence for evolution is deficient, and new approaches and information are needed. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.

Our study reveals that chemical evolution does not provide a satisfying solution to the question of the origin of life. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.
Evolution is not primarily a scientific theory, but a comprehensive metaphysical world view that implicitly and explicitly has frightening implications in all of the most important categories of human existence. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.
The State of California has adopted a policy of including varous theories of human origins, including creationism, in public school classes in social science. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.
A meeting of the Bible-Science Subcommittee was held at Prineville, Oregon, where papers were read and discussed. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.
A reivew of the book, Uniqueness and Diversity in Human Evolution. Comparison of Australopithecus and Homo using multivariate statistics does not support the claim that australopithecines are ancestral to humans. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.
A living mollusk from the eastern Pacific is similar to a Silurian fossil thought to be extinct for millions of years. This "living fossil" (a "Lazarus species") is a major discovery in mollucsan biology. Published in Origins v. 3, n. 1.
The first three chapters of Genesis are of crucial importance for both the origins of our world and for determining relationships between man and woman. Without these chapters, any understanding of the mutuality between man and woman is impaired and one-sided.
