Creationism and Baraminology Research News

This blog has been superceded, and is only here for archive purposes. For the latest articles, please see us at our new location!

An ongoing list of creationist research projects. This is not a creationism-verse-evolution site, but a site to publicize the research work done by members of the creationist community and the intelligent design community, or research work by the science community at large constructively relating to creation topics. Evolutionary critiques may be included on occasion but only under special consideration, and especially where the research pertains directly to developing a creationist model.

The Baraminology of Snakes

Tom Hennigan has a new paper out concerning the baraminology of snakes. For those of you who have forgotten, baraminology is the creationist biosystematics/taxonomy methodology. You can read more about it at the beginning of the blog archives.

Anyway, while not identifying holobaramins (original created kinds), Tom was able to identify several monobaramins (organisms part of a single created kind, but that may be joined with other monobaramins to form the complete created kind).

By several lines of evidence, he identified the following monobaramins.

From Boidae: Morelia/Liasis, Python, and Antaresia

From Colubridae: Nerodia, Pantherophis/Lampropeltis/Ptuophis, Diadophis, Thamnophis, Tolucaa/Conopsis, and Chilomeniscus

From Viperidae: Crotalus/Sistrurus, Agkistrodon, and Bitis

Tom identified the question of whether or not snakes represent a holobaramin as an open question.
