Date Available: Sunday, July 9, 2017

Dr. Russell Humphreys

Ph.D. Physics

Bio: http://creation.com/d-russell-humphreys-cv

Dr. Humphreys is best-known in creationist circles for his work demonstrating the scientific validity of the Biblical timeframe for the age of the earth and other bodies in space.

Ex.: Magnetic field decay: almost every large body in our Solar System has, or once had, a strong magnetic field. In 1984, on the basis of Scripture, Dr. Humphreys proposed a theory that suggested how God created those fields. His five very specific predictions about what then-future space probes would find out about planetary magnetic fields has now been verified, several in the last few years. They could have proved true only if the Solar System is only thousands of years old. (See Mercury's Fading Magnetic Field Fits Creation Model, or Google "Humphreys magnetic".)

Helium diffusion: Another area in which Humphreys' work demonstrated that a 6,000-year age for the earth involves helium in rocks deep in the earth. Helium diffuses rapidly from rocks; after a certain amount of time, very little should be left. Yet the helium concentration in rocks that were supposedly millions of years old, was consistent with those rocks being thousands of years old.

Starlight and time: Dr. Humphreys has also been working on a model of space and time that attempts to explain the problem of why, if the earth is only thousands of years of age, we can already see objects in space which we believe to be billions of light-years away! His model lis called the "Time Dilation Theory." (There are also several other creationist models attempting to explain the "starlight and time" phenomenon.) (Note: the Big Bang model has its own problems, which are rarely discussed in the public media, but have led a large number of scientists to question the Big Bang.)

Date Available: Sunday, September 24, 2017

Dr. Steve Austin

Ph.D., Geology

Bio: http://creationwiki.org/Steve_Austin

Dr. Austin has been a researcher for the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) for

Dr. Austin's research has focused largely on evidences for a "young" earth and the world-wide Flood. His particular areas of research have been the Grand Canyon, Mt. St. Helens, along with other areas, such as problems with radiometric dating methods. His Ph.D. dissertation concerned how coal seams give evidence of having once been floating mats of vegetation, deposited in a very large flood. He was the first to notice that large numbers of ammonite fossils in the Grand Canyon were all swimming in the same direction when they were buried in a wave of sediment, leading to their being fossilized, and fossilized as they were swimming. See his bio for more on CreationWiki, which also lists some of his presentations!
