The Miller/Morris Debate (1981)

On April 10, 1981, at Brown University, Kenneth R. Miller of Brown University and Henry M. Morris of the Institute for Creation Research debated whether “the theory of evolution is superior to the theory of special creation as an explanation for all the scientific evidence related to origins.”

HOMO BAUGH-ANTHROPUS?

It is no surprise that the supposed Cretaceous hominid Homo bauanthropus is recognized only by Carl Baugh. The species name, he explains, is in honor of “a physically superior royal tribe in Fiji”(quoting from p 368 of his 1989 dissertation, available on-line at http://www.creationevidence.org/~creatio1/carlbaugh.htm). Discussing Baugh’s claims in 1985, the physical anthropologist Laurie Godfrey identified the footprints as falling into three classes: clear toe impressions of tridactyl dinosaurs, poor dinosaur tracks obscured by infillings of mud, and misinterpreted invertebrate burrow casts of Thalassinoides (see “Foot notes of an anatomist” in Creation/Evolution 5 [1]: 16–35; available on-line at http://ncse.com/cej/5/1/foot-notes-anatomist).
