Origin of Polonium Halos

Origin of Polonium Halos

INTRODUCTION

It has been more than twelve years since we (Collins 1988, 1997b; Hunt and others 1992) discussed Robert Gentry’s hypothesis proposing that polonium (Po) halos and granite were created nearly instantaneously on Day Three of the Genesis Week (Gen 1:9–10; Gentry 1965, 1970, 1974, 1983, 1988). It is worth examining new information pertinent to the origin of polonium halos. Gentry points out that most granite petrologists believe that all granite bodies of large size are formed deep in the earth’s crust from magma (molten rock)

The Price of Altruism: George Price and the Search for the Origins of Kindness

Year:

Title: 
The Price of Altruism: George Price and the Search for the Origins of Kindness
Date: 
Forthcoming

Have you ever seen the bumper sticker “Practice Random Acts of Kindness”? I was thinking about that bumper sticker as I began to write this review. A quick Google search revealed that there are, in fact, more than 300 different bumper stickers extolling the virtues of kindness or encouraging us to practice it. An act of kindness seems so simple. The concept of kindness (or altruism), however, is anything but simple.

In early December 2007, my hometown newspaper, the Louisville, Kentucky, Courier- Journal, published my opinion piece concerning the newly opened creation museum in northern Kentucky. As a former science teacher with a particular interest in the understanding and advancement of science in society, I expressed my concern that this $27-million facility dedicated to the rejection of all science that contradicts a literal interpretation of biblical scripture is exceeding attendance expectations and gaining momentum in its mission to cast doubt on evolutionary biology and
