Miscellaneous articles by David H. Bailey

This website contains a number of papers on miscellaneous topics, distinct from the papers on my principal research website (see Main DHB publication site). These papers are presented in the spirit of open-minded exploration, covering topics ranging from physics and the philosophy of science, to theology, creationism and intelligent design. Additional articles and reference materials on these topics are available at the Science Meets Religion site.

These papers are listed in approximate chronological order, with most recent listed last. In most cases these are preprint copies that have minor differences from the published versions.
