In the May issue of ICR's Acts and Facts, John Morris quotes from
Newsweek, Nov 3, 1997, where he says Astrophysicist John Bahcall said:
"...the universe's lights, contrary to astronomers' hunches, turned on in
one great burst."

John concludes with glee that this quote supports the "truth that God
created all the heavenly bodies on Day Four of Creation Week." and that
the Big Bang theory was "fizzling."

Below is the main stuff in this issue.

ICR "Acts & Facts" May 2007

IMPACT No. 407 - Adam and Eve, Vitamin C, and Pseudogenes

If vitamin C is such an important nutrient, and many other animals

ability to synthesize vitamin C and lost it through genetic
degeneration or is this ability something God chose not to give
humans?

BACK TO GENESIS 221(a) - Why Does ICR Study the Mount St. Helen's
Eruption?

Ever since the May 18, 1980, eruption of Mount St. Helens, ICR has
made it a focus of intense research. From it we have learned a great
deal about the origin of rocks and geologic features, and the
processes needed to form them.

BACK TO GENESIS 221(b) - The Amazing Jewel Beetle

Recently scientists made a startling discovery in the world of
insects. It involved a common beetle called the jewel beetle which is
designed with the uncanny ability to detect flames of a forest fire
perhaps 80 kilometers (approximately 50 miles) away.

BACK TO GENESIS 221(c) - Great Turnovers!

The book of Job contains interesting allusions to "overturning" of
mountains and of the earth that, on the surface, appear to have
relevance to geology. One must say "appear," because Biblical
creationists like me can be accused of being overly literal!

BACK TO GENESIS 221(d) - Supernova Shell Shock

They had told us a particular supernova exploded 10,000 years ago.
How then, did the Chinese see it in AD 185? The answer is a case
study in scientific inference.
