For more than 100 years, controversy has continued over the question of the origin of man and the world in which he lives. Like some other controversies from the past, this one will end when technology reaches the point of being able to provide a clear answer.
We are now at that point.
The advent of modern genetics, coupled with refinement of the fossil record and the concepts of modern computer technology, are now combining to point the way clearly towards the origin of the species.
Science is at last beginning to close the gap.
The ending to this controversy will be a surprise to some, but in an historical perspective it should not be surprising at all. To understand why this is so, let us step backward in history for a moment.
Most of the early geologists and many who followed would not be surprised at the outcome. Copernicus, Newton, Pasteur, Joule, Kelvin, Faraday, and probably Galileo himself would not be surprised. Darwinism interrupted some good science.
The Tree of Life and the Origin of the Species traces the logical progression from the geological record to the new Tree of Life Model. It also contains a commentary on the first nine chapters of the Bible, showing the stunning match between Scripture and the fossil record, and between Scripture and the expanding universe, introducing a partly new theory of solar system and moon origin en route. The knot of ancient human history is partly untied. Pointers to possible new areas of research are provided.
You are invited to evaluate a new creation model for the 21st Century. In doing so, the reader will have the opportunity to join hands in some measure with the personal philosophy of pioneers great names in science such as Joule, Faraday, Lord Kelvin, Sir Isaac Newton, and many other besides. Science near its highest potential! Science built upon objective observation! Science to give renewed confidence!
Science to lead mankind upwards into a new millennium!

Mr Philip Bruce Heywood was born in the old gold mining town of Cracow, in country Queensland, Australia, 1953. He achieved - he says with some difficulty - a B.Sc.(hons) at the University of Queensland, perhaps because the staff of that fine institution took pity on him.
Although not a ready learner, he nevertheless did acquire a great respect for the science of Geology, along with an implicit trust in the reliability of the geological record and those who first brought these discoveries to light. He then worked for three years as a geologist, publishing a few minor and obscure borehole records in the Queensland Government Mining Journal.
The privilege of being able to study thousands of metres of drill core fresh from the earth reinforced to him the reliability of geological science and those who founded it. Being unsuited to office work he then tried farming: In the process of farming he tried some very part-time teaching. While part-time teaching, he tried to teach the subject of 'Origins'. Being altogether confused on this topic he asked the Almighty for guidance and believed that he would get it.
And thus he has seen things which have taken him to his knees in awe and wonder. He counts himself amongst the most privileged of people, if only because of the awesomness of it all! He feels that if an amateur such as he can understand it, every man can certainly understand it! At every stage Mr Heywood unsuccessfully tried to give the message and materials to others to use, preferring personal anonymity.
His hope and earnest desire in publishing these materials is 1) to bring honour and Glory to the great God; 2) to provide a real and lasting benefit to all who study these materials in sincerity and, 3) to encourage a renewed throwing off of superstition and ignorance, ushering in a new golden age of science.
