In this expanded 8th edition, evidence that revolutionizes our understanding of origins is carefully explained. Part I discusses, in quick overview, 131 categories of evidence from biology, astronomy, earth science, and the physical sciences. Part II describes the hydroplate theory, developed during 35 years of study and research by Walt Brown. This theory explains a catastrophic event in Earth's history and solves a host of recognized problems. Some chapters in Part II deal with: the origin of the Grand Canyon, evidence that shows comets, asteroids, and meteoroids came from Earth. the sudden freezing and burial of the frozen mammoths, if there was a global flood, where the water came from and where it went, and how mountain ranges, volcanoes, submarine canyons, ocean trenches, and coal and oil deposits were formed. Thirty-seven other frequently asked questions fill a fascinating Part III of Brown's book. A few of those questions are: Is global warming occurring? If so, what causes it? Have scientific tools detected genetic traces of Adam and Eve within us? How accurate is radiocarbon dating? What about the dinosaurs? What hydroplate theory predictions have been confirmed? Is evolution compatible with the Bible?

Amazing! Dr. Walt Brown wrote best scientific book ever. I strongly recommend this book to all. All explanations of evidences are very logical and completely in agreement with biblical account of recent creation and global flood. Read full review

So many errors of fact in this book I don't know where to start. If you don't have a background in science I guess you can just make it up as you go along? If you read this book, do your self a favor and do a little fact checking.

About the author (2008)

Walt Brown received a PhD in mechanical engineering from M.I.T. where he was a National Science Foundation Fellow. He has taught college courses in physics, mathematics, and computer science. Brown is a retired full colonel (Air Force), West Point graduate, and former Army Ranger and paratrooper. Assignments during his 21 years in the military included: Director of Benet Research, Development, and Engineering Laboratories in Albany, NY, tenured associate professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy, and Chief of Science and Technology at the Air War College. For most of his life Walt Brown was an evolutionist, but after many years of study, he became convinced of the scientific validity of creation and the global flood. He has developed the hydroplate theory of the flood. Since retiring from the military, Dr. Brown has been the Director of the Center for Scientific Creation and has been involved full time in research and writing.
