12—Ukiah Daily Journal, Uklah, Calif. Friday/January 13, 1978 Jon. 15-21 Cteafion Week Creationism versus evolutibnism theory Deep Valley , Christian School has learned that the week of Jan. 15-21 has been set aside as Creation Week; Creationism is the doctrine that tliis universe is the specialcreatidn in completed, functioning fOiTti by an infinite personal being. It stands in complete contradiction to the prevailing theory of origins, called evolutionism, which attemptJh|o explain the birth and development of the cosmos in terms of naturalistic, random processes. According to Dr. Henry Morris, president of the Institute of Creation Research in San Diego, the argument that creationism is solely the province of Christian fundamentalists, while evolution is the belief of the scientific community, is wrong. "There are many thousands ^ of qualified scientists who r6j<Set evolutionary theories. The Creation Research Society, an organization of academically qualified scientists, alone has more than'550 members," Dr. Morris states. "Neither creation nor evolution can be subjected to the scientific method because they cannot be observed in operation today nor can they be repeated. Evolution is as much • a doctrine requiring religious faith as is creation and in many wayg'more so, for it has numerous unresolved difficulties, and it contradicts established scientific laws. Creationism, conversely, is as much a model as evolution that can be used by scientists t6 explain origins. Many <3f the phenomena used by evolutionists to substantiate their doctrines can be better explained by special creation than by evolution," he continues. "The most serious flaws in' evolutionary theory include the absence qf intermediate forms, 'missing links', in the geological record, the absence of observable transmutations of Ijfe forms from one species or genus to another, and the abrupt appearance of mammals and flowering plants and the equally abrupt disappearance of giant sauri'ans. Eil^olution is in direct contradiction to the second law of thermodynamics which states, in effect, that everything wears out, runs down, becomes disordered. The use of index fossils in establishing the age of a stratum is a curious example of circular reasoning, for the ages of strata are determined by the fossils they contain, and the ages of fossils are determined by the strata in which they occur. Other dating methods, based on radioactive decay, are often conflicting and require unprovable assumptions of a uniform prehistory. Creationism does hot require either n\issing links or transmutations which would violate established biological laws, in fact it dispenses with the need for such links and predicts they will not be found. Dr. Morris states. "Creationism is in complete conformity with the pecond law of thermodynamics. It declares that the so-called column of geological hiSitory resulted not from uniform layering, but from a cataclysmic event. The creationist holds that the earth is young. There are many dating methods which tend to substantiate this idea. The measure of the decay of the earth's magnetic field, the rate of decomposition of short term comets, the influx of nickel, cobalt, silicon, and lead into the ocean from rivers, the formation of .river deltas, the rate of growth of human population, the growth' of coral reefs, and 'he influx of radio carbon into the earth's system all point to an age of less than 20,000 years for the earth." •» "More and more scientists are giving serious consideration to Creationism as a valid scientific model, as it justly deserves. There are many good books on tire subject which the open- minded person ought to read before he assumes that evolutionism is either the only scientifically formulated model of origins or that it is in any sense proved and correct," he concludes. Among the best books are "The Scientific Case for Creation" and "The Troubled Waters of Evolution," both by Dr. Henry M. , Morris; "Evolution, the Fossils say No!" by Duane Gish; "The Early Earth," by Dr. John Whitcomb, and "Scientific Creationism," 'by Dr. Henry Mori-is, and "Evolution: Possible or Impossible," . by Dr. James F. Coopedge are excellent books on a more technical level. "Genesis in Space & Time" by FYancis Schaeffer approaches creation from a philosophical — theological point of view, according to Dr. Morris. CELEBRATING mass in Latin, dissident Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre dedicated his St. Pius X Society's North American headquarters at Oyster Bay Cove, Long Islandi The 71-year-old French prelate has led resistance within the church to recent reforms, including the abandonment of the ^tin mass. Gnosfics-fhorn in the side of ChrisfianitY By DAVID E. ANDERSON UPl Religion Writer In the first centuries of Christianity, members of the early church sought to formulate and transmit the faith of the first followers of Jesus in a cultural environment " filled with competing and often exotic religious and philosophical systems. One of the most intriguing and influential of these systems was that of Gnosticism — a religious and philosophic syistem that sought to bring together elements of Judaism, Christianity, Greek philosophical thought, Egyptian and Persian religion as well as astrology and parts of the mystery cults. . Although the Gnostics were ultimately condemned as heretics and read out of the emerging church, there is Utile doubt that they had a strong influence on the church and some scholars have estimfited that for a time the majority of those who called themselves* Christians adhered to some form of the system. In general. Gnostics were believers in a secret revelation transmitted not through general knowledge but initiation. It regarded pure spirit as good but thought that spirit had been imprisoned in corrupt matter and salvation , was the freeing of Spirit from niatter! The debate over the Gnostic influence on Christianity has not gone away but is very much a part of the current dispute over the incarnation of Jesus. \ " , Some of those who maintain that the incarnation — the belief that in Jesus God became m^n — is a myth, believe the incarnation may be a Gnostic addition to "pure" Christianity and they argue that neither Jesus nor the early apostles argued his divinity. Until very recently the work of the Gnostics has only been known through the sometimes myopic attacks by the defenders of what came to be orthodox Christianity. Now, however, in a publishing landmark. Harper and Row has made available in English "The Nag Hammadi Library,',' a collection of Gnostic writings composed around the time of Christ and which is considered as major an archeological find as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Gnostic texts, written in Coptic, the Egyptian language of the day, were probably secreted in jars and hidden in caves around '400' A.D. as Roman authorities sought to stamp out the movement [n the name of orthodox Christianity, according to James M. Robinson, general editor of Harper's English edition of the Library. Keeping an eye on your home while you're away HOUSTON (UPD — During long absences, keeping the house warm, pets fed, plants watered, car started, mail collected and burglars diverted can be a problem. Houston Homewatche^ Inc. will solve it for a price. They'll even throw in a supply of garbage to empty just to give the old homestead a real lived-in look. "We set up the business with a couple of ads in the newspaper and immediately got tremendous response," said Ms. Janice Beale, founder and president. "People were intrigued that we would be coming into their houses daily." For $4.50 a day, Ms. Beale, her neighbor and partner, Barbara Marcus, or one of their staff of four will enter the house daily to check security, adjust drapes, set timed lights and gather the mail and newspapers. "There is garbage coljection in Houston twice a week and on the days the people have their garbage collected, we put out a bag of garbage," Ms. Beale said. "If you don't have it, we supply it. From somewhere comes a bag. "We take great pains to make the house looked,lived in, to open and shut draperies. that sort of thing." They also will start the car and feed hamsters, goldfish and parakeets for no extra charge. But larger pets will cost you. Full service plu? one dog raises the fee to $8.50 daily. Each additional big pet is $2 more, but that includes two visits a day^ walking if requested and, of course, feeding, with the client buying the dog food. There are additional services. "F'or $30 a day we clean the house," Ms. Beale said. "We do supply a house sitter for $30 a week. Mowing the lawn costs $7.50 a mow. "For $5 a day, clients supply us with a grocery list before they leave town, we have all those groceifies purchased and cupboarded for them so there's no frantic shopping when they come back." They even consider special requests, . "We've gone to the grocery store to buy a certain kind of barbecued chicken for a certain cat. We've also giyen medicine to animals. One hamster would eat only hard- boiled eggs." Ms. Beale started housewatching in wealthy Hillsborough, Calif,, three years ago, after a bad experience in boarding her own dog during a trip to Hawaii. "We came to the conclusion that kennels and boarding places were just not the right place for dogs," she said. "Cats fared even worse." Her first partner later changed careers and Ms. Beale moved to Houston where "all the talk of burglaries" led her to start another housewatching business Sept. 30. She and her new partner, who are bonded and insured, have an average of 20 clients at a time, all in southwest Houston. Stip expects rapid growth with planned expansion to serve the entire city.
