The April issue of the Institute for Creation Research's _Acts & Facts_
arrived a couple days ago. Here are the highlights:
1. A report on Duane Gish's visit to Bolivia at the end of
February. Gish appeared on television and radio and lectured at
several universities, before businessmen, and at churches.
2. A report on the impact of the ICR "museum" and recent media
attention from the SF Chronicle, LA Times, BBC Radio, CNN, a
French PBS production team, and Details magazine. The Details
article is scheduled to appear in May--the article is about
The ICR Museum has begun having rotating exhibits. The
first was "Creation, Evolution, and Abortion," which concluded
March 31. The next one is "Creation, Evolution, and
Environmentalism" which will run from April 15 to June 30.
3. The ICR Radio Log for "Science, Scripture, and Salvation" says that
a new magazine format has been adopted, beginning with the April 23
show. This means there will be multiple presenters giving shorter
pieces. The first new show features creationist sleazebag Kent
Hovind on "a Biblical history of the dinosaurs" plus John Morris and
Ken Ham on other aspects of dinosaurs.
4. John Morris has published a new children's book on Noah's Ark, titled
_Noah's Ark and the Ararat Adventure_, a revised edition of his earlier
_Noah's Ark and the Lost World_. The new edition includes a debunking of
the Fasold/Wyatt rock formation.
5. _Back to Genesis_ features an article by William A. Hoesch (described
as having "an M.S. degree in geology," probably from the ICR Graduate
School (or else they would have named the institution) on "The Hyper-
Environmentalists." The article is about man's place in nature,
environmentalists being "earth worshipers," and casts doubt on
environmental dangers such as global warming.
6. The back page of _Back to Genesis_ features "Do Peppered Moths Prove
Evolution?" by John Morris, to which he gives the answer "no."
7. _Impact_ No. 250, by Duane Gish, is titled "When is a Whale a Whale?"
and is a response to the recent discovery of _Ambulocetus_. Gish claims
that it's a wolf-like carnivore, not a whale, and he also says that it
is younger than _Pakicetus_, the oldest cetacean.
