As our order form indicates, we’re selling a book entitled In the Beginning – Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood by Dr. Walt Brown. This book refutes the theory of evolution from all aspects of science and scientifically shows how the Biblical Flood occurred. To give our readers a taste of what this book covers, here’s a link to a picture of the bulge in the earth that is formed by the Mid-Oceanic ridge.
The Mid-Oceanic Ridge, which is actually the world’s longest mountain range, wraps around the earth but is not generally known since most of it lies on the ocean floor.
The Hydroplate Theory asserts in tremendous detail (to which this very brief attempted description doesn’t remotely do justice) that during the flood the “fountains of the great deep were broken up,” as the Bible says (Gen. 7:11), meaning that the crust of the earth was broken apart in what is now the area of the Atlantic Ocean, launching subterranean water violently into the air.
As this water continued to shoot out, the crack in the crust of the earth continued to spread and move and rip the crust of the earth, eventually encircling the earth to become what we now see as the Mid-Oceanic Ridge (second link above). The waters violently shooting out of the broken crust caused the continental plates to drift apart and move away from the crack in the crust of the earth where the “fountains of the great deep” had broken, as we see here.
Birth of Mid-Atlantic Ridge –
This drift of the plates away from the ridge ended with the violent compression event that squeezed up the earth’s major mountain ranges. Moreover, consider ocean trenches. Ocean trenches are depressions or ditches on the floor of the ocean. Most ocean trenches are concentrated in the western Pacific, as we see in this diagram here.
Think of the earth as a globe (Isaias 40:22), rather than as a flat map, so that as inner portions of the globe are pushed out in certain areas, the opposite side is sucked in in certain areas. The western Pacific, where most ocean trenches are located, is almost exactly opposite the center of the Atlantic Ocean, in both longitude and latitude! Ocean trenches were formed by the flood.
There is much more in the book which proves that the Biblical Flood is earth’s defining geological event – including the cause of almost all fossils, comets, coal, limestone, the jigsaw fit of the continents, etc., etc., etc. – but this should hopefully give the reader an idea of what the book is about. The book is somewhat deep and technical at times, and will appeal primarily to those who have a deeper interest in these matters.
