Creationists launch peer-reviewed journal

Answers in Genesis, an apologetics ministry dedicated to enabling Christians to defend their faith and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively, recently launched a technical journal entitled, Answers Research Journal. The purpose is to provide an outlet for interdisciplinary scientific and other relevant research from the perspective of the recent Creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework.

From the ABOUT section:

Answers in Genesis is excited to announce the launch of its online technical journal, Answers Research Journal. ARJ is 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. All published papers may be freely copied, downloaded, quoted, and distributed for non-commercial and non-sale purposes (as long as the author of each publication is clearly identified, Answers Research Journal is acknowledged as the publication, and the integrity of the work is not compromised).

Addressing the need to disseminate the vast fields of research conducted by creationist experts in theology, history, archaeology, anthropology, biology, geology, astronomy, and other disciplines of science, Answers Research Journal will provide scientists and students the results of cutting-edge research that demonstrates the validity of the young-earth model, the global Flood, the non-evolutionary origin of “created kinds,” and other evidences that are consistent with the biblical account of origins. The newly expanded research effort at Answers in Genesis, with the establishment of its Research Department, will facilitate this further venue for publication and dissemination of the results of creationist research.

I am interested to see how they will "demonstrate the validity of the young-earth model, the global Flood, the non-evolutionary origin of 'created kinds,' and other evidences that are consistent with the biblical account of origins"

This doesn't defend a theological position...it contributes to the seclusion and isolation of those with religious convictions from scientific inquiry.

I think it shows a serious problem with the notion of peer review. We use that to separate the wheat from the chaff. But really, it simply uses the people who are trained together/share the same background, which can easily be manipulated.

so we want more than 'peer review,' we want 'peer reviewed with as little agenda as possible' something quite different.

More than mere ignorance, aggressive ignorance.

Critics of creationism and Intelligent Design (ID) often note that creationist or ID research does not appear in peer-reviewed literature (e.g., Crawford 1982; Scott and Branch 2003; Max 2004; Bottaro et al. 2006). Creationists complain that we are excluded from the peer-reviewed literature (Anderson 2002; Kulikovsky 2008; see also Tipler 2004) and are therefore required to publish in our own peer reviewed-literature (Morris 2003). Critics view creationist peer review as not “real” peer review. For example, recent attempts to launch new creationist peer-reviewed journals have been met with scorn or dismissal (Sparks et al. 2007; Brumfiel 2008).

obviously like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to tell the reality then again I will certainly come again again.
