Best Evidence for a Young Earth, Part 1 - This describes various processes that argue for a young age for Earth.  This deals with what are called Category 1 evidences, which are quantifiable in some way.  

Best Evidence for a Young Earth, Part 2 - Deals with Category 2 evidences, which are non-quantifiable but deal with important issues raised by geologists.  

Fossils - What do they record? - This explains basics about different types of fossils and how they relate to Noah's Flood. Addresses how creationists and evolutionists have different definitions of what a "transitional form" is, that might be evidence for evolution.  

The Non-Evolution of Man - This is a two part summary of the evidence on the evolution of man from ape-man intermediates.  Some differences between apes and human are explained as well as past and current controversies about particular cases such as the neaderthals and the australopithicines.  The evidence shows apes and humans have always been separate and humans did not evolve.

Global Warming Versus God's Design
- This article addresses the claims that human activities, such as burning fossil fuels, is causing a global warming that will lead to problems for the future.  The limitations of climate science and atmospheric processes that complicate the issue are explained.   A growing list of scientists are questioning that global warming is a real issue.  This article addresses the issue from the perspective that God has designed the Earth so that climate extremes are prevented.    

Introduction to Flood Geology - This is a summary of the current status of research on how Noah's Flood took place.  It explains geological terms important for understanding Creationist Geology.  It also serves as an introduction to Wayne's research on Impacts and Noah's Flood.

Stratification Experiments and Flood Geology -This is a summary of the research of Guy Berthault, a creationist from France, related to hydraulics and sedimentation processes.  A process he calls "the mechanism of non-horizontal layers" can form multiple horizontal rock layers at the same time, rather than one after the other.  This is significant for understanding how Noah's Flood might lay down some sedimentary rock we see today.  This summary article is based on the technical papers by Berthault and his associates and personal correspondence with geologists.

Geologic Column Table - This is a table referred to in the Introduction to Flood Geology.  It shows how evolutionist scientists have divided up Earth history into various periods.  Rocks are classified by this chart.

Kansas Fossils and a Great Flood - This is a summary of evidence for the world-wide Flood in Genesis, including facts on marine fossils found in Kansas. There is also a discussion of the Miller Stone, in which wood was found in Cretaceous sandstone (NOT fossilized wood).

How We Know the World is Young - This is a short overview of evidence pointing to the Earth and Universe being young.  The Bible, Radioactive dating techniques, the Mt. St. Helens volcanic eruption, and other subjects are commented on.

Frozen Mammoths - What Really Happened?  -  This article answers a common question that has been addressed in many creationist books.  In Northern Siberia there are regions where many Mammoth remains have been found frozen in the arctic tundra.  Some have argued that these Mammoths were quick frozen in Noah's Flood.  This gives Wayne Spencer's opinion on the issue, with a list of sources for more information.

Geophysical Effects of Impacts during the Genesis Flood - ICC 1998 paper by Wayne Spencer (PDF, 432 KB)

"Catastrophic Impact Bombardment Surrounding the Genesis Flood" addresses geological and physical evidences that impacts from space occurred during the global Noahic Flood described in Genesis.  "Geophysical Effects of Impacts during the Genesis Flood" deals with what the physical effects would be of thousands of impacts occurring surrounding Noah's Flood.  The duration of these effects is related to the Flood chronology to examine whether such an event could realistically accompany other processes of the Flood.

The Chesapeake Bay Impact and Noah's Flood - by Wayne R. Spencer and Michael J. Oard
This paper looks at the issue of when the Chesapeake Bay crater occurred in relation to Noah's Flood.  Under Chesapeake Bay lies a large buried crater approximately 85 Km (over 50 miles) in diameter.  The Biblical Geologic Model of Tasman Walker is applied to the geology of the Chesapeake Bay area.  The paper argues that the impact occurred while Flood waters were running off the continent in the Abative Phase of the Flood.
