WhitcombThe Genesis Floodhas been criticized for taking quotes out of context and misquoting sources. He imagined the earth as a sort of huge pressure cooker rupturing its skin and allowing surging internal waters to cover the earth.
The astronomy section was especially obvious. On the positive side, Morris actually does make a large number of good arguments for his position.
Morris eventually left his faculty position at Virginia Tech in to focus on his work in creationism, after university interactions with a new engineering dean who directed Morris not to list creationist works alongside his engineering publications, viewing his non-engineering writings and increasing persona to be "too controversial.
Parker, What is Creation Science? Useful as a reference in some cases. This book would not be my first choice for an apologetic reference, but it is definitely helpful and insightful as far as what the creationist movement used to be like.
Shortly after his graduation from Rice inhowever, Morris accepted the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation, as the infallible and literal word of God. The sixth verse has God declaring, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. It is also extremely unfortunate as much of the science was flawed.
Morris could not be more direct in conceding that a Flood of the magnitude described in Genesis was impossible without a suspension of natural law: Some are very large, some are extremely small, some are quick, some slow, some burrow into the ground, some swim in the ocean, some climb the highest trees.
Anyways, this book is full of arguments that are supposed to be proof of Creationism, but they quite easil I read this book back in High School when I started my insatiable need for knowledge and pretty much believed it at the time. Fenton, Professor of Agronomy at Iowa State Universitywrote "scientific value of the book is nil ; the author selectively chooses the areas of science that he accepts and rejects other areas of accepted science".
How did the canopy get there? Anyways, this book is full of arguments that are supposed to be proof of Creationism, but they quite easily fall apart when put under any scrutiny.
Overall, this work is indeed helpful, a classic in young-Earth cr This is just a quick summary of what I think about this book: As a so-called Christian book As a number of other reviews have stated, this appears to be the best scientific argument for 6-day creation.
Surely, on some primordial beach, a man would have suffered a heart attack and been washed into the lower strata before intelligence had a chance to plot a temporary escape….
I suggest reading something with a little less "truthiness" and some more factual evidence and sound logic. No man keep lithified company with a dinosaur, because we were still 60 million years in the future when the last dinosaur perished. You can find tons of debunking articles all over the internet.
If they read and understand what is said about evolution they have to accept it as truth or run away from the truth. The bottom line of the book summarised the very worst of fundamentalism, which is: If you read this it might hurt your brain.
He taught hydraulic engineering, and that interest, coupled with his belief that the Bible provided an accurate account of history, led him to ponder how the Great Flood reported in Genesis might be explained in scientific terms. Morris by Doug Linder Henry M.
No trilobite lies in the upper strata because they all perished million years ago.

The uniformitarian position is that sedimentary rock, which often appear in layers thousands of feet in thickness, have been laid down by the gradual and steady process of deposition.
We were not there…. And this, in a few words, in the whole account of the business. Mammals occupy virtually every corner of this planet. As a so-called Christian book, I found it quite embarrassing. Unfortunately, some people still use the arguments in these books even though all of them have been thoroughly and brutally proven to be chock full of nothing but crap.
And when they do appear, with incredible bad luck, the fossils arrive in just the right sequence to piece together imaginary evolutionary sequences in a dozen different families.
Morris rejects the obvious answer—rain clouds—because Genesis 2: Morristook over the presidency of ICR when his father retired.
He seems to have virtually no idea what those he argues against actually believe. Not my any means consistent with natural laws operating today.
This is a bad idea for a Creationist. Overall, a good book for the researcher and enthusiast.Henry Morris' seminal work on the subject has been used as a supplementary text in public universities.
