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.

Why Scriptural Geology Failed in the 1800's

GRISDA has a paper by Warren Johns explaining why he thinks that scriptural geology failed in the 1800s. It has some good ideas. Here are his suggestions:
  • Restricting flood layers to higher and higher portions of the geologic record

  • Lack of human fossils in geologic strata

  • The shift away from the hard facts of geology by the scriptural geologists

  • The major journals and educational institutions were hostile to traditional religious beliefs

  • The professionalization of geology made it difficult for part-time geologists (such as the scriptural geologists) to have a voice

  • Liberal theology was replacing orthodox theology as the dominant view
