    Subject: Gentry's cosmic model

    The following letter appears in the March 2001 issue of APS News (the
    monthly newspaper of The American Physical Society). I've read what
    Strahler had to say about Gentry and his polonium halos. Does anyone have
    any responses to this latest effort by Gentry to formulate a new
    cosmological model?



    Microscopic Halos Favor Recent Creation

        Here is a creation/evolution issue pertaining to nuclear physicists,
    astrophysicists, and cosmologists. I have reported Earth's foundation
    rocks, the granites, contain microscopic halos traceable to the alpha decay
    of certain primordial Po isotopes. Their short half-lives demand almost
    instant creation of the host rocks, prior to the Po decaying away.
    Geologists resisted accepting this result; so two decades ago I challenged
    them to sustain their objections by: (i) duplicating just one Po-218 halo in
    an annealed piece of granite, and (ii) synthesizing a small piece of granite
    to confirm that it can form naturally. To me the prolonged silence about
    this test means the Creator uniquely designed both the Po halos and the
    granites to spotlight Genesis' literal six-day creation of the visible
    cosmos and its seventh-day memorial. (See for more on
    this topic.) In 1997 I published a new cosmic model based on a finite,
    nonhomogeneous, vacuum-gravity universe with a nearby cosmic Center (C), and
    showed it accounts for the 2.73 K CMB, the CMB at higher z, and the Hubble
    redshift relation. More recently, see for year 2001, I
    reported it also accounts for six other of big bang's major predictions.
