That they could assume to know the full nature of a possible creator who would exist outside of the physical realm of the Universe.

Default Huh? Shot into the upper atmosphere by fire and exploding gases?

Ah yes; the "final solution!" God blasted them around the world. "Hang on, Fred; this is going to be one hell of a ride!" said the kangaroo.

Amongst those highly overheated, toxic fumes, sent to > 15 - 20,000 feet elevation, where there's not enough Oxygen, for a, say, twelve hour "flight" from Ararat to Peru. Oh, and why, then, is the Ark (supposedly) still there? Was it made of fireproof, explosion-proof "unobtanium". Let's see....

Nope. It was made from gopherwood (???) and pitch. Not likely very fire- and brimstone-proof, eh?

It's never-ending, the efforts at fantasy make-believe to overcome the uncountable logical flaws.

Frankly, folks, abandon those nut-ball concepts. It either never happened (Yey!!!) or it was done by Godly Magic. Evaluations based on logic will always conclude that it simply didn't or couldn't ever happen.

Answers in Genesis, the folks who brought us the Creation Museum, just launched a “professional, peer-reviewed technical journal.

VIII. Paper Review Process
The following criteria will be used in judging papers:

1. Is the paper’s topic important to the development of the Creation and Flood model?
2. Does the paper’s topic provide an original contribution to the Creation and Flood model?
3. Is this paper formulated within a young-earth, young-universe framework?
4. If the paper discusses claimed evidence for an old earth and/or universe, does this paper offer a very constructively positive criticism and provide a possible young-earth, young-universe alternative?
5. If the paper is polemical in nature, does it deal with a topic rarely discussed within the origins debate?
6. Does this paper provide evidence of faithfulness to the grammatical-historical/normative interpretation of Scripture?

Remark: The editor-in-chief will not be afraid to reject a paper if it does not properly satisfy the above criteria or it conflicts with the best interests of AiG as judged by its biblical stand and goals outlined in its statement of faith.

Contrast the criteria above with the guidelines for peer review at highly-respected journals like Science (where the rules begin with “reviews should be objective evaluations of the research,”) or Nature (where the first priority for a paper is that it “provides strong evidence for its conclusions”).

I'm assuming that is pier review as opposed to peer review.

It makes me laugh when they say they don't believe in evolution but then they go into the pharmacy to get their anti biotics.
