Donald W. Patten
Donald Wesley Patten was born in 1929 at Conrad, Montana. He received a B.A. from the Geography Department, Univ. of Washington in 1951, and also the M.A. degree in Geography in 1961. He is married, has seven children and sixteen grandchildren. In Seattle, he is the founder of Microfilm Service Co. (now M.S.C.) and also of Patten Corporation, a firm involved in commercial property management.
He has written three books and edited seven. His books are "The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch (1966)", "The Long Day of Joshua and Six Other Catastrophes (1973)" and "Catastrophism and the Old Testament (1988)". He edited the series for Baker Book House, 1968-1980, entitled "Symposium on Creation".
With Windsor, he has co-authored six essays and has been the sole author of some ten additional essays, all on Earth history or solar system history. These essays include "The Remains of Noah's Ark: Is It Found?", "The Scars of Mars", "The Flood of Mars", "The Earth's Ancient Greenhouse Effect and Longevity", and "The Origin of the Earth's Ice Age".
Patten (like Windsor) was among the party of ten who, with David Fasold, inspected the Ark Site, the Chip Stone site and the Drogue Stones Site in June 1990. With Windsor, he has been a pioneer in demonstrating that in ancient times planetary catastrophism engulfed our planet periodically, and is always viewed within the principles of celestial mechanics.
He is also a principal in a current experiment on the relationship of elevated carbon dioxide in controlled atmospheres and its relationship to biological vigor and greater size for mammals.
Patten is a member of Bethany Community Church, the Seattle Chess Club, and the endowment committee of Watson Groen Christian School, Seattle.
Samuel R. Windsor
Samuel Ronald Windsor was born in 1934 at Wichita, Kansas. He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1959 at Wichita State University. He resides on Orcas Island, Washington. He is married, has nine children and sixteen grandchildren. He is the associate partner in Bronson & Windsor, a naval architect and marine engineering firm in Seattle's Ballard district.
He has authored several essays on Earth history. These include "The Venus vs. Mars Controversy (or Which Planet Assaulted the Earth), "Noah's Ark, 24,000 Deadweight Tons". and "Noah's Ark: Its Geometry." These essays were published in Catastrophism and Ancient History.
In addition he has co-authored (with Patten) nine essays on Earth history published by Aeon and Catastrophism and Ancient History. These include "Clashing Magnetic Fields", "The Origin and Decay of the Earth's Geomagnetic Field", "The Origin of the Solar System (A Capture Theory)", "Catastrophism and Mountain Uplifts", "The Birth and Odyssey of Halley's Comet," "The Conservative Approach to Planetary Catastrophism" and "Twin Spin Axis Tilts - Earth and Mars, and Why."
Windsor and his wife (Erma) were among the party of ten who, in June 1990, with Patten and David Fasold, inspected the Ark Site and the Drogue Stones Site. Windsor has reduced the measurement data of precise iron locations recorded by Fasold and (later) by Baumgartner, to computer analysis. Those measurements, as logged by both Baumgartner and Fasold independently, of the precise iron locations within the Ark Site, are identical. Thus they were confirmed.
Windsor is a member of the International Conference of Building Officials, American Concrete Institute and American MENSA.
