|Let me guess: Answers in Genesis has all kinds of good evidence, too, if only we have eyes to see. Right?|
AIG has some interesting information to consider just like other creationists and evolutionists. I'm not sure what you mean by “if only we have eyes to see”. If you’re referring to having to be a bible believing Christian to see, I have no idea if that is a problem or not. I’m not big on AIG due to the fact that sometimes I think they are a bit mean and close minded to some things. In fact, I don’t think any one particular theory is “fact” or much better than the others. I think the facts probably lie somewhere in the middle.

Well, sweetie, I’ve tried to explain that I’ve been reading a lot on this subject and wanted to be more explicit with my response, but everyone is so terribly impatient and said that I didn’t need to take so much time. I still plan to write something up for my blog, but I’m really enjoying just taking my time and reading about a lot of this stuff again. It’s terribly interesting.
Ian, Oldman listed some of the predictions for you, and I assure you that Walt’s theory offers everything that you had questions about, but it’s quite indepth and if for no other reason than just for kicks, you should consider reading the book. The entire thing is on line, but the book makes it easier to page back and forth between different topics. One doesn’t have to agree everything that Brown puts forth, but he certainly makes you think before blindly accepting the conclusions of the ToE.
|If you showed me a model for the flood that not only expects one or two things that could exist even without the flood, AND deals with how Noah et al weren't boiled alive, or even how the ancient Egyptians, Assyrians and various others somehow didnt have their civilisations damaged by being totally wiped out I might regard them as being something other than a ridiculous notion dreamed up by people who are afraid of the slightest possibility they could be wrong. |
As far as being “boiled alive in the flood”, I did call Brown about that once, and he spent quite a bit of time explaining “supercritical water” to me and the experiments he‘s done in regard to SCW. I took a lot of notes at the time, but I have no clue where they are now. Here’s a link that touches on the topic.
As far as ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, etc., I did consider that issue as well and I remember looking into the “problem” and wrote something about it at KCFS eons ago, but again...lost in memory. I’ll try to find the link if I get the time.
I’m not a Brown groupie as slpage would have everyone believe. It’s just that the man is the closest I’ve come to someone who is interested primarily in the science rather than the political shit that goes on in this debate. He keeps to himself, posts his entire book on-line so people have full access without having to give money to “charlatans”, and he doesn’t spend any time pounding the pavement trying to do away with materialism. He’s been working 20 years on the scientific issues in this debate, and he’s very interesting to talk to. I've questioned him several times, and he's always been patient and polite.
