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This blog has been superceded, and is only here for archive purposes.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.

Baraminology from Past Generations

Todd Wood has a new paper out on some of older discussions of baraminology from the 1500s and 1600s. It's very interesting because while it predates baraminology by several centuries, the framework of thought is already there. For instance:

  • "Kinds" are not equivalent with species (in fact they have rather broad kinds as well).

  • They had their own calculations of the space required for the animals on the ark (an interesting project would be to compare this with Woodmorappe's numbers.

  • Discusses predatory nature of animals pre-flood (though comes to a different conclusion than most modern creationists)

  • Discusses the shape of the ark for floating on the water

Anyway, it's interesting to see that although most Creationists in the current century knew little of these older works, that these answers are not unique to our generation, but have been recognized century after century.
