A summary of ICR "Acts & Facts" - December 2006
IMPACT No. 402 - A Tale of Two Hourglasses

Humphreys writes: "In your kitchen you start a three-minute egg timer and
a 60-minute hourglass simultaneously and then leave. You return a short
while later to find the hourglass fully discharged but not the egg timer!
Something must be wrong.

The RATE project has found several striking examples of such
contradictions ... ."

He then goes on to argue that helium leak experiments conform to a 6000
year old earth.

Lots of stuff here suggesting the ICR hypothesis that God changed nuclear
forces at various times (such as during the flood) to greatly accelerate
nuclear decay. He claims that there are many scriptures which suggest
just this. Fascinating.

BACK TO GENESIS: BTG 216(a) - How Did Methuselah Die?

John Morris writes: "One of the favorite characters in the Old Testament
is Methuselah, who lived 969 years (Genesis 5:27), longer than anyone
else recorded. His father was Enoch, of whom it is said he "walked with
God" (5:24) but who was taken to heaven without dying at 365 years." John
speculates that Noah must have been given up to 120 years of warning. He
speculates that Methuselah may have been an unbeliever since he died the
year the flood started.

BACK TO GENESIS: BTG 216(b) - Those Amazing G Protein Receptors

Sherwin writes: "Using freeze-fracturing and an electron microscope,
researchers can
indirectly view the plasma membrane of a human cell. What is revealed are
large, globular protein molecules that stud the bi-lipid membrane ... ."
Frank argues that since there is no documentation of the evolution of
these molecules, they must have been directly created.

BACK TO GENESIS: BTG 216(c) - The Big Thaw

Hoesch writes: "Ask anybody who has experienced spring "break-up" along
the banks of an Alaskan river, and you will quickly learn that large
amounts of ice seldom melt placidly."

He goes on to talk about Niagara Falls, arguing that Flood geology fits
what is observed very closely.

BACK TO GENESIS: BTG 216(d) - There's Only One Universe

Coppedge writes: "Recently a new word has appeared in cosmological
literature: multiverse. You won't find it in the dictionary, because it
contains a contradiction
in terms: multiple universes."

Guess what. He argues against it His chief argument seems to be that
since the word "universe" is defined as "everything," that one cannot
have multiple everythings. The concept, he writes, comes about because of
the "desperation of atheists trying to escape evidence for design." I
love his argument that since his dictionary doesn't define it, the
concept obviously cannot exist.

Other ICR news -- ICR has opened an office in Dallas. (As if Texas did
not have enough fundies)! It is called the Henry M. Morris Center for
Christian Leadership." It is a one story brick building about 10 miles
from the airport. Very attractive.
