Baraminology in the News

Todd Wood’s Statistical Study of Homo Naledi

Much has been in the news recently about the Homo Naledi fossil find. Questions of is it human or is it not are rampant in the Creation Community. This is a good summary by Todd Wood. His basic opinion: “My baraminology study used characters published in the supplemental appendices to Berger’s paper. I found that Homo naledi unquestionably clustered with the cluster that contained Homo sapiens, which in my assessment makes it part of the “human” cluster (that is, descended from Adam and Eve).” Oh, here is also a video on Homo Naledi by Kurt Wise explaining the possible burial.

Human Genesis

A Creationist Research on Human Origins. Todd Wood has been busy. He has started a new website specifically dealing with human origins. He describes it as “Human origins and the historical Adam are important subjects for Christians, but it’s challenging to find reliable information from a young-age creationist perspective. Everyone seems to have an opinion, and it’s hard to know what’s reliable. Human Genesis is a gateway to the best of creationist writings and research on human origins. Everything from “cave man” fossils to the human genome will eventually be covered here, along with perspectives on the latest discoveries.”.

Introduction to Baraminology Part 2: Finding the Limits of Created Kinds

A new article on Baraminology is up at The Creation Club. “From the time of Adam until now, man has worked to group and classify the plants and animals. In so doing, there have been many questions. What are the limits of a Created Kind? How much variation is possible with a Kind? What is the difference between a Created Kind and the species we see today? One of the primary goals of Baraminology, the study of Created Kinds, is to distinguish the groupings and limits of the Created Kinds which are described in the book of Genesis. A second goal is to demonstrate that plants and animals do not all descend from a single common ancestor, but rather were created as distinct fully formed Kinds.” For those who missed the first part, it can be found at: Introduction to Baraminology Part 1: Why Study Created Kinds.

Baraminology and Created Kinds by Todd Elder

A book on “Origin of Species by Special Creation and the Preservation of Mankind by the Creator”. My previous books were self-published. I have moved up a notch to independent publishing and the quality level of the work keeps getting pushed up. It has been decided to add a number of my seminar images and graphics to the book to better illustrate concepts and ideas. This adds at least a few more weeks of work before it can be released publicly. Here you can see Samples of the Graphics.
