Research into the geological processes operating on Mars relies on interpretation of images and other data returned by unmanned orbiters, probes and landers. Such interpretations are based on our knowledge of processes occurring on Earth Terrestrial analog studies therefore play an important role in understanding the geological features observed on Mars. This 2007 book presents direct comparisons between locales on Earth and Mars, and contains contributions from leading planetary geologists to demonstrate the parallels and differences between these two neighboring planets. Mars is characterized by a wide range of geological phenomena that also occur on Earth, including tectonic, volcanic, impact cratering, eolian, fluvial, glacial and possibly lacustrine and marine processes. The book provides terrestrial analogs for data sets from Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey, Mars Exploration Rovers and Mars Express, and will therefore be a key reference for students and researchers of planetary science.

Charles Darwin's masterpiece, On the Origin of Species, shook society to its core on publication in 1859. Darwin was only too aware of the storm his theory of evolution would provoke but he would surely have raised an incredulous eyebrow at the controversy still raging a century and a half later. Evolution is accepted as scientific fact by all reputable scientists and indeed theologians, yet millions of people continue to question its veracity. In The Greatest Show on Earth Richard Dawkins takes on creationists, including followers of 'Intelligent Design' and all those who question the fact of evolution through natural selection. Like a detective arriving on the scene of a crime, he sifts through fascinating layers of scientific facts and disciplines to build a cast-iron case: from the living examples of natural selection in birds and insects; the 'time clocks' of trees and radioactive dating that calibrate a timescale for evolution; the fossil record and the traces of our earliest ancestors; to confirmation from molecular biology and genetics. All of this, and much more, bears witness to the truth of evolution. The Greatest Show on Earth comes at a critical time: systematic opposition to the fact of evolution is now flourishing as never before, especially in America. In Britain and elsewhere in the world, teachers witness insidious attempts to undermine the status of science in their classrooms. Richard Dawkins provides unequivocal evidence that boldly and comprehensively rebuts such nonsense. At the same time he shares with us his palpable love of the natural world and the essential role that science plays in its interpretation. Written with elegance, wit and passion, it is hard-hitting, absorbing and totally convincing.
Did you know that there is strong scientific evidence that the earth is only 6,000-10,000 years old? The author takes on the challenge of researching what are sometimes called the "Icons of Evolution." They are called icons because they are listed in many school textbooks as the best evidence for Naturalistic Evolution. You will learn the current evidence on: Big Bang Miller-Urey Experiment Natural Selection DNA Similarities Fossil Record Geologic Time Line Evidence of Dinosaurs Lucy Peppered Moths Haeckel's Embryos Homology Many other topics Brian DeMars has researched the evidence put forth by Darwin and subsequent scientists and found that much of it is clearly lacking in solid scientific support. In fact, many of the pieces of evidence for Naturalistic Evolution are based on the philosophy that there is no God or purposive force and so must be explained in a purely naturalistic realm. DeMars is sharing his research of the pieces of evidence as a fellow learner. He does not have any advanced science degrees and so is able to explain the principles in ways that we all can understand. Since the nature of the book is a survey, the author has included QR codes throughout the chapters so that the reader can dig deeper into areas that particularly interest them. If you are confused about the whole topic of the source of our origins, this book will help you to begin to get a handle on the topic. The bottom line is that the unchanging Word of God has much to tell us about how we, and everything around us, came about. Brian DeMars, M.A. taught Physical Education and coached Basketball and Volleyball at Rift Valley Academy in Kenya, East Africa from 1982-1999. He was a professor of Kinesiology at Fresno Pacific University from 1999-2013. www.youngearthcreation.com
Recent evidence has indicated that the impact of a comet or asteroid may have been responsible for mass extinction at the ends of both the Cretaceous and the Eocene. Quantitative analysis by Raup and Sepkoski showed that mass extinctions occur with a 26-Myr period, similar to the period seen in qualitative pelagic records by Fischer and Arthur. To account for the possibility of periodic comet showers, Davis et al. proposed that such showers could be triggered by an unseen solar companion star as it passes through perihelion on a moderately eccentric orbit. To test a prediction implicit in this model we examined records of large impact craters on the Earth. We report here that most of the craters occur in a 28.4-Myr cycle. Within measurement errors, this period and its phase are the same as those found in the fossil mass extinctions. The probability that such agreement is accidental is 1 in 10.

This book puts the idea of God on trial. Whilst the case has been hotly disputed over recent generations with scientists on one side and theologians on the other, evidence either way has been thin on the ground. Faith - belief without evidence - has been the basis for the world's major religions. Most scientists reject the notion of God because they require factual, empirical evidence in order to accept any proposition as being real. However, new information has become available, which appears to provide hard-nosed evidence of God's existence. Can faith be replaced by understanding, and can scientists formally embrace, once again, the concept of a supreme being as they did in Isaac Newton's day? Nothing less than God's 'blueprint' appears to have been discovered - found by chance by the author while researching the science of the Neolithic (late Stone Age) people of western Europe. The case will be tried taking the evidence step-by-step. You, the reader, are the jury. You must evaluate the evidence as the proceedings develop and, to aid you, there will be a brief summing up at the end of each section.At the close of the book you are asked to make a judgment as to whether the case is proven or not. Does God exist?
