This appears to be a reprint of a much older Journal article. While still a very good article, it mentions the possibility of a vapor canopy, which most creationists abandoned years ago. The arguments of this paper still apply, except crediting a vapor canopy is no longer argued by most creationists. There still may have been much less atmospheric C-14 before and immediately after the flood. See several other LSI essays and articles, including the May 2003 LSI Journal article, "The Vapor Canopy Theory - Is It in Trouble?" As always, science changes, but God’s revealed truth in Scripture never changes. MSB, 3/16/2014

Origin of Life and Species: Four Formulas by Darrel Kautz This is a reprint of a much older article. Darrel Kautz went home to the Lord in 1993.
The formulas given in this section are those often used by Prof. Wilder-Smith when lecturing on the differences between the creationist’s and the evolutionist’s views about the origin of life and species.
Origin of life research is not enabling Darwinian fundamentalists to propose better and better theories for the origin of life without intelligent design. Instead they are stalemated and following the siren song of biochemical predestination, which only takes them from the frying pan to the fire. The known laws of science, from information science to biology, reveal that information requires an intelligent creator, language even more so. Life comes from life, and ultimately from a self-existent (uncaused) Living Creator with the competence to create life.
Review - Finding Darwin's God by Jeffrey Stueber Review of Kenneth Miller’s book, "Finding Darwin‘s God."
This book is a stern rebuke to the intelligent-design community, which is gaining headway among the educational establishment, fellow scientists, theologians, and many youth. Miller seeks to debunk I.D. and reaffirm naturalistic evolution while installing theistic evolution as God’s chosen method of creating.
Yes, Adam and Eve were Pretty Smart Editorial Comment by Warren Krug (March-April, 2002)
Scientists are uncovering evidence that Adam and Eve were rather intelligent, smarter than many have thought. Of course, mainstream scientists don't call them "Adam and Eve" but rather "ancient humans." Still, the idea that the first people were ignorant brutes is fast falling by the wayside.
We would expect most fossils to appear in a rough order from deep sea marine organisms to terrestrial life, based on factors like their ability to flee danger and hydrological sorting of their bodies. Of course marine organisms would be present at all levels, but land-dwelling life would not be found in the deep sea deposits. Darwinian fundamentalism does not predict this marine-to-terrestrial order we see in fossils, as the creation model does; it simply incorporates the evidence it finds. We even find marine fossils on the tops of the highest mountains, including Mount Everest, demonstrating that the layers from which the mountains formed were once under water.
