One of world's leading evolutionary geologists twice admits that polonium halos in granites still remain a tiny mystery.

In 1991 Brent Dalrymple, the ACLU's chief geology witness against the polonium halo evidence for creation at the 1981 Arkansas creation trial, was the President of the approximately 30,000-member American Geophysical Union (AGU). Its members include the Earth, Atmospheric, and Ocean sciences. In 1992 Brent used the AGU's mailing list to send a fund-raising letter, with his signature, to all its members using the letterhead of the National Center for Science Education, a pro-evolution organization dedicated to preventing the teaching of creation science in the public school. I received his letter because I am an AGU member. In it Brent made the following comment about the urgency of finding a solution to the "tiny mystery" of creation:

  • The [creation] movement is beginning to affect some college classes, too, as members of Genesis Clubs enter classrooms with disruptive (and difficult to answer) questions. How would you answer a student who announced in your class that the Second Law of Thermodynamics doesn't permit evolution? Or that the presence of polonium halos in granite demonstrates that granite had to have formed suddenly (i.e., was specially created)?

In 1995, just three years later I, along with the other 30,000 or so AGU members, received a similar fund-raising letter. As the following shows, in it Brent again sent out another SOS, telling all who received it how urgent it was that some conventional explanation of the "tiny mystery" of creation be found, for creationist students were continuing to bring this evidence into classrooms as proof of fiat creation.

  • The [creation] movement is beginning to affect some college classes, too, as members of "Genesis clubs" enter classrooms with disruptive (and difficult to answer) questions. How would you answer a student who claims that the presence of polonium halos in granite demonstrates that granite had to have formed suddenly (i.e., was specially created)? [Note that this time he omitted reference to thermodynamics.]

I find it most ironic that one of the world's leading evolutionary geologists, who has virtually everything to lose by admitting that polonium halos in granites remain a tiny mystery of creation, twice goes on record to tens of thousands of his colleagues, saying he can find no conventional explanation for them — while the world's leading creationist geologist, who previously has gone on record as believing just that, now begins to say that he can no longer find where they are evidence of fiat creation, but instead is now opting to believe that they are somehow of secondary origin. The Bible says that no lie is of the truth. Either the evolutionist or the creationist is now believing and disseminating the truth. There have been two conversions. Only one is of God.
