Here is a very amusing biblical archaeology journal written from a fundamentalist/creationist perspective:
I can't tell for sure, but I think it's serious. Perhaps this is a good resource for our 6 day creationist friend Marc Kay...
Some of my favourite quotes from the 'sample issue' 19(4):2006
On that evil pseudo-science, geology:
"the Flood is a very plausible triggering mechanism for the Ice Age,
which required a set of unique and simultaneous circumstances
unexplainable by uniformitarian principles"
On dinosaurs and why they're no longer with us:
"The Flood or its subsequent affects serve to explain animal
extinctions on a massive scale. This includes dinosaurs, which have been
hijacked by the evolutionary establishment as a propaganda tool against
the Scriptures. Most of the dinosaurs were simply unable to survive the
adverse environmental conditions that existed after they left the Ark."
How to get around C14 dating:
"Since the Flood lasted for a period of 371 days, the carbon cycle of
the entire earth was completely disrupted in a relatively short period
of time. This state of affairs would drastically affect the results of
C-14 dating methods as one moves back in history closer to the Flood.
Rejecting the historicity of the Flood leads to erroneous assumptions
built into the C-14/C-12 ratios needed to calculate dates."
And my personal favourite...
How to refute one hundred millennia of biological and social evolution in one tremendously uninformed paragraph:
"...the Tower of Babel incident (Gn 11) ... fractured the human
community and sent various people groups all across the globe. Genetic
distribution in human culture was vastly affected by this event. People
groups were separated because they could not communicate with one
another and therefore the human gene pool was split apart. Cultural
identity began with similarity of language and expanded to include
physical features such as skin color and various other physical, yet
superficial, differences. Modern anthropology and archaeology are
entrenched in a paradigm antithetical to the Biblical young
earth/Flood/Babel paradigm and therefore have continuously drawn
incorrect conclusions from the data in their respective fields."
