In The Beginning — Dr. Walt Brown

026095: In the Beginning, 8th Edition Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood In the Beginning, 8th Edition Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood
By Walt Brown

Jumping right to the point, readers will find this book a point-by-point refutation of evolutionist beliefs and affirmation of creationist doctrine. Readers will learn about the author’s “hydroplate theory”, the social consequences of Darwinism, Scriptural answers for what happened during creation, and more. This book is arranged in three parts: The Scientific Case for Creation; Foundations of the Great Deep; and Frequently Asked Questions, 448 indexed pages, hardcover.

The 8th Edition was published in December 2008. From time to time, new developments are added throughout this online version of the book.

Grand Canyon: The Puzzle on the Plateau

Mike Snavely’s explanation of the Grand Canyon is an excellent visual summary of the 8th edition’s Grand Canyon chapter.  Filmed on location in Arizona and Utah.  Includes quality animations.


Pastor Kevin Lea looks at what the Bible says about earthquakes. He then compares the earthquake explanations of the plate tectonic theory and the hydroplate theory, and explains why there will be powerful global earthquakes.

About the Author

WaltBrown.jpg ImageWalt Brown received a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he was a National Science Foundation Fellow. He has taught college courses in physics, mathematics, and computer science. Brown is a retired Air Force full colonel, West Point graduate, and former Army Ranger and paratrooper. Assignments during his 21 years of military service included: Director of Benét Laboratories (a major research, development, and engineering facility); tenured associate professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy; and Chief of Science and Technology Studies at the Air War College. For much of his life Walt Brown was an evolutionist, but after years of study, he became convinced of the scientific validity of creation and a global flood. Since retiring from the military, Dr. Brown has been the Director of the Center for Scientific Creation and has worked full time in research, writing, and teaching on creation and the flood.

For those who wish to know more about Walt Brown, a new book (Christian Men of Science: Eleven Men Who Changed the World by George Mulfinger and Julia Mulfinger Orozco) devotes a chapter to Brown. It may be read by clicking here.


Written Debate

The issue is: Does the scientific evidence favor creation or evolution? Dr. Brown’s standing offer for a strictly scientific, written, and publishable debate is on page 479. Note that a few initially agreed to a strictly scientific debate, but later changed their minds, insisting they would only take part if the exchange included religion. One evolutionist is so upset that a written debate will not include religion that he now misleads by saying that Walt Brown has refused to debate him. (Correspondence in our files shows how he no longer wanted a strictly scientific debate after reading the 6th edition of this book.) Dr. Brown has consistently maintained his position for 31 years: the debate should be limited to scientific evidence. If someone says, “Walt Brown has refused to debate,” we suggest you ask to see that person’s signed debate agreement.


Recorded Phone Debate

For anyone who disagrees with the hydroplate theory (explained in Part II of this book), the recorded phone debate is appropriate. Anyone, regardless of their scientific credentials, can engage Dr. Brown, provided they have read the theory. For details, see page 482.


About the Book In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood

This greatly expanded new edition—comprehensive, understandable, and meticulously documented—will give insights to readers of all backgrounds. In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood takes a different look at a currently hot topic. Evidence that could revolutionize our understanding of origins is carefully explained. You will be challenged to consider fresh ideas in this age-old debate.

Part I of In the Beginning discusses, in quick overview, 131 categories of evidence from biology, astronomy, and the physical and earth sciences. More technical discussions and documentation are found in the author’s extensive endnotes.

  • Does the scientific evidence support evolution or creation?
  • What insights do genetics and the fossil record provide?
  • How old is the earth? What dating techniques indicate a young earth?
  • What discoveries in outer space relate to our beginnings?
  • Does Noah’s Ark exist? What is the CIA’s “Ararat Anomaly”?

Part II describes the hydroplate theory, developed during more than 35 years of study by Dr. Walt Brown, a former evolutionist. This theory explains a catastrophic event in earth’s history and solves a host of recognized problems. For decades, evolutionists complained that creationists only criticized evolution and did not offer sound scientific theories of their own. The hydroplate theory ends that complaint and explains, with overwhelming evidence, earth’s defining geological event—a worldwide flood.

  • If there was a global flood, where did the water come from? Where did it go?
  • What were the powerful fountains of the great deep?
  • How was the Grand Canyon carved in weeks after a post-flood lake (Grand Lake) breached?
  • What evidence shows that the material in comets, asteroids, and meteoroids came from Earth?
  • What suddenly froze and buried the mammoths?  How could they have survived the 6-month winter nights inside the Arctic Circle?
  • How did mountains ranges, volcanoes, submarine canyons, coal and oil deposits, and deep ocean trenches form?
  • What processes sorted fossils and produced layered strata?

Thirty-seven other frequently asked questions fill a fascinating Part III, including:

  • Is global warming occurring? If so, what causes it?
  • Have scientific tools detected traces of Adam and Eve within us?
  • Is evolution compatible with the Bible?
  • How accurate is radiocarbon dating?
  • What about the dinosaurs?
  • How can the study of creation be scientific?
  • Is there life in outer space?
  • Galaxies are billions of light-years away, so isn’t the universe billions of years old?
  • What hydroplate predictions have been confirmed?
