THEOLOGIAN. "A century of uniformitarian thought has set back real progress and knowledge incalculably. Now, with relief, we note that leaders of scientific thought are beginning to express their doubts out loud. The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch, a fitting companion to the Space Age, offers some satisfying answers to the great cosmological, geographical and geological questions which have concerned any man who has ever asked, 'How did I get here?' Here, at the college, I have already used Patten's book as a text for a number of classes, and commend it highly."
Prof. Talmage Wilson, Seattle Pacific College, Seattle, Washington.
|METEOROLOGIST. "Mr. Patten's ideas seem basically sound
and well-reasoned out. I like his astronomical hypothesis. The discussion
of the grounding of the Ark on the high mountain hedge of the Ararat-Caucasus
group, offers strong evidence of the tidal nature of the Flood. I'll bet
this observation will stir up quite a storm.
"The chapter on astral catastrophes in ancient writings and legends is extremely interesting and shows evidence of careful research. The graphic illustration of the decline of longevity in man after the Flood is a good example of a transient decay curve in response to an abrupt change, followed by a new steady state. Mr. Patten also presents a most interesting hypothesis for the appearance of 'ape-man'."
Mr. A. James Wagner, M.S. Meteorology, U.S. Weather Bureau, Washington, D.C.
