"A review of exobiogenesis theories." by Jerry Bergman, Ph.D. 
pp. 204-213.  
[[ Many evolutionists have concluded that all existing 
naturalistic origin of life hypotheses are highly untenable. 
Consequently, some prominent evolutionists have hypothesized an 
alternate origin of life theory called exobiogenesis, or the 
theory that life evolved elsewhere in the universe and was 
carried to earth. Those who reject both the theistic world view 
and the possibility of abiogenesis on the ancient earth must 
assume that conditions existed elsewhere in the solar system or 
the universe which were more favorable for the origin of life or 
biological molecules. Recognizing that conditions on earth 
historically precluded the spontaneous origin of life forces 
exploring exobiogenesis to maintain the naturalistic world view. 
This view has also motivated the reintroduction of an intelligent 
design theory called directed panspermia. Nowhere does the 
literature reveal as vividly the impossibility of a naturalistic 
origin of life on the earth than in this field. The fact that an 
entirely hypothetical scenario has been proposed in a theory 
which is supported by virtually no empirical evidence forces a 
review of the major exobiogenesis theories. ]] 
"Stone Mountain, Georgia: A creation geologist's perspective." by 
Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G. pp. 214-224.  
[[ Stone mountain has an exposed granitic pluton, located in 
Northeast Georgia.  Uniformitarian estimates suggest that the 
granite was intruded into overlying metamorphic rocks during the 
last stages of the Alleghenian Orogeny. Later the mountain became 
exposed at the earth's surface. The uniformitarian model for the 
formation of Stone Mountain remains unsolved. This paper presents 
an interpretation, using the young earth Flood model, for the 
origin of Stone Mountain which would predict its formation and 
exposure during the Flood event. ]]
"Fossil wood of Big Bend National Park, part IV: Wood structure, 
nodules, paleosols, and climate." by E.L. Williams, Ph.D.; G.F. 
Howe, Ph.D.; G.T. Matzko, Ph.D.; R.B. White, B.A.; and W.G. 
Stark, A.S. pp. 225-232.  
[[The various charcoalified and petrified wood samples collected 
from the Dawson Creek region of the Big Bend National Park were 
examined optically and by scanning electron microscopy.  Possible 
past climatic change in the Big Bend region is discussed.]]
"Physiological evidence for creation." by D.A. Kaufmann, Ph.D. 
pp. 239-246.  
[[A brief review of the academic discipline of physiology is 
given, including a discussion of similarities: 1) of design and 
function in organelles and organs; 2) between the negative 
feedback mechanisms of the heating-cooling systems of our houses 
and of our bodies; and 3) of the homeostatic functions of a giant 
airport and our body's hormonal system. Six body systems are 
examined with respect to their precise, purposeful functions. A 
look at the evolutionary beliefs of physiologists, and at 
vitalism versus mechanism reveals that evolutionism is on 
unstable foundations. The exceptional arrangement and precise 
operation of its physiological systems clearly indicate that the 
human body was created by a Divine Designer, and raise serious 
doubts about whether such systems could have arisen by chance.]]
