"In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood (8th Edition)"

Physicist Jerry Jellison has posted a scathing review of creationist Walt Brown's book, “In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood (8th Edition)” (Amazon).  The critique, titled "Wrong, and I can prove it", can be found towards the bottom of the page or can be directly accessed here.

Jerry talks predominantly about the geological evidence, but he does discuss Brown's bizarre claim about the heat of accelerated radioactive decay being launched into space!

As with many pseudo-scientific claims, Brown's model is justified by computations and computer programs that are not available for testing or examination by other researchers.
