Walt Brown received a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from 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 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, New York; 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 many years of study, he became convinced of the scientific validity of creation and a global flood. Since retiring from the military in 1980, Dr. Brown has been the Director of the Center for Scientific Creation and has worked full time in research, writing, and speaking on origins.
Author and researcher Walt Brown discussed Noah's Ark, the Great Flood and the debate between creationism and evolution.The Ark might be found surrounded by permanent icecap at 14,000 ft. elevation. Mount Ararat in Turkey or the Zagros Mountains in Iran are possible locations, he said. Over the years, a number of people have claimed to see the relic. One of them was George Hagopian, who said as a young boy he was taken to Mount Ararat and shown the Ark, which he described as a big barge (drawings & paintings were subsequently made from his descriptions). Brown noted that across civilizations there are some 230 legends/accounts of a great flood. Rain from clouds could not have created such a deluge, he commented. He proposed his hydroplate theorywhich suggests that crustal plates rose up out of the water-- causing continents to rise and massive flooding to occur. Arguing that Earth was created by God just 6,000 to 10,000 years ago, Brown said that radio carbon dating doesn' ... More »Host: George Noory
