In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood

In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation & the Flood - Walt Brown I am not a big fan of Amazon, but sometimes I appreciate them. Today, their handy Look Inside feature enabled me to leaf through this bizarre piece of pseudo-science, now in its eighth edition, without buying or even touching it.

The author is either deeply cynical or insane; in a spirit of Christian charity, I will assume it is the former. I hope the book has made him some money.
