Cutting-edge creation research

Wow, just wow. I knew of creationism and intelligent design, and their project of building up a bible-compatible research corpus, but I had never come across the results of that research. Thanks to a friend of mine, that is now done. I have had the opportunity to read Microbes and the Days of Creation, published in Answers Research Journal, a
professional, peer-reviewed technical journal for the publication of interdisciplinary scientific and other relevant research from the perspective of the recent Creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework.

I recommend having a look, it's truly remarkable. It's good to know that people are actually spending time and resources investigating important fundamental questions, such as whether microbes were created on day 3, 5 or 6 of the Genesis. Sadly, as for most truly cutting-edge scientific questions, the results are not fully conclusive:
Although we cannot be certain as to specifically when the Creator made microbes, it is within His character to make entire interwoven, “packaged” systems to sustain and maintain life.

Still, this is a promising start, and one can only hope that the resolution of this issue will provide some insight into the 2 other important open problems of our times: whether earth is really flat, and whether angels have a sex.
