Abstracts are enclosed by [[ ]]. "Nineteenth Century Darwinism and the Tasmanian Genocide." by Jerry Bergman, Ph.D., pp. 190-196. [[ It was widely believed in the nineteenth century that the Tasmanians were a living link between modern humans and their primate ancestors. Given the presupposition of naturalistic evolution, the Tasmanian people were often seen as less than human and, consequently, many people felt it was not wrong or immoral to treat them like animals. Today it is concluded that htey were a distinct racial group similar to the Australian Aborigines that possessed a unique culture and were fully human. This event is only one of many examples of the numerous tragedies that evolutionary naturalism has produced in modern times. ]] "Dougherty Gap: Evidence for a Turbidity Current Paleoenvironment" by Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G., and Jack H. Cowart, M.S., P.G., pp. 202-214. [[ A trace fossil exposure located at Dougherty Gap, Walker County, Georgia, provides an excellent opportunity to evaluate existing physical information, and compare a uniformitarian interpretation and a young-earth Flood interpretation for that site. This examination reveals that a turbidity current depositional environment better explains the stratigraphic record found at this site than does the proposed uniformitarian prograding delta model. Additionally, a turbidity current depositional environment fits within both the expected depositional environment and the timeframes of the young- earth Flood model. ]] = "A Biblical Christian Framework for Earth History Research: Introduction to the Series." by John K. Reed and Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G., pp. 228-229. [[ This is an introduction to a series of papers to appear in forthcoming issues of the CRSQ. These papers, written by professional geologists, will trace a logical sequence of steps for the development of a young-earth approach to earth history studies. ]] OTHER SELECTED FEATURES: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ PANORAMA NOTES -------------- = "Extinction and Evolution." by Carl R.

EDITORS' COMMENTS (p. 189) ----------------- Our "publication year" will begin anew with the next CRSQ issue - June 1996. Please assure its arrival by renewing your membership/subscription - see the enclosed form and note the slightly revised cost schedule, page 188. This March issue is the end of another volume and we gratefully reflect on the large number of capably written scientific articles and other features that have gone to press. This last issue contains a low number of articles but it is freighted with book reviews and letters in an attempt on our part to get up-to-date with these. We hope readers benefit from such shorter features because each one supplies a clear glimpse into important aspects of the creation-evolution controversy. In this issue we once again thank Lane Lester and Brenda Lindley-Anderson for gracing the Quarterly with a Copy-n-Share centerpiece. The center four pages can be removed as one sheet and printed in large numbers for distribution to young readers. We hope this will aid in promoting scientific creationism. We also hope its application information and book advertisements will attract young readers to creationist literature that can bring balance to their slanted educational fare. Does the library of your alma mater subscribe to CRSQ? Would the readers consider donating a subscription to CRSQ for the library of their alma mater? We suggest that an extra issue be ordered from the membership secretary and mailed to the librarian of the college or institution. A cover letter could be included explaining that CRSQ is a peer-reviewed scientific publication, and that as an alumnus of the institution you would like to donate a year's subscription, provided the library will shelve and archive the journal when it is received. We believe that the benefits to library patrons will be well worth the expense and effort involved.
