We read the Glen Rose Reporter newspaper. Last week there was an article on the *Inspiration* page about a 25 foot Noah's Ark Replica dedication ceremony. (Good thing it was in *Inspiration* because it sure wasn't *Science*.) Not sure if the Ark is placed anywhere near Tom Landry's statue.Don't really care about the Noah's ark statue, although it looks like a fun children's toy, but this caught my eye.
At Saturday's Noah's Ark Replica Dedication Ceremony at the Creation Evidence Museum of Texas, artist Steve Miller (left) presented paintings of Ed Davis being shown Noah's Ark fragments on Mount Ararat in Turkey to Dr. Don Shockey (center) and Sir David Otway Wray, Ph.D. (right). Wray, who is world renowned in the field of quantum algebra, revealed that he came up with an eight-page equation - supported by his colleagues - that determined the universe is only 6,000-10,000 years old. "The farther back I went in time, the more refined and orchestrated the universe became," Wray said. That conclusion supports the museum's Noah's Ark replica, which shows dinosaurs coexisting with humans and mammals.
... said he had worked out an eight-page equation regarding the universe that his colleagues couldn't dispute. "They told David they couldn't find anything wrong, they just didn't like his conclusions" said museum director Carl Baugh...
Which colleagues are those?. Funny how the *conclusion comment sounds a lot like what this book says.
From Wake Up! The Lord is Coming!
Russian scientist, Dr David Otway-Wray, a specialist in the theory of quantum mechanics, subjected the Book of Genesis to particle and solid-state physics, and algebraic formula, concluding that this solar system could not be any older, than between 6,000-10,000 years of age; although I cannot accept his arguments, the time continuum overcomes the objection to a greater length of time for the origination of life on Earth
One would think that Dr Wray has submitted his paper for peer review to a scientific journal, perhaps mathematics, open for discussion and comment on why he believes his equations based on the Bible are correct. Source, please, along with a list of exactly who these colleagues of Dr Wrays are, along with a verifiable reference and their credentials. Also, please post the link to the 8 page paper so that all may read it here.
Surprisingly enough, I know I sure am, the idea that the universe is only 6000 years old MATCHES WHAT BAUGH BELIEVES. Whodathunk?
While Wray had originally planned to give a dissertation on his equations to substantiate the universe, tehre was concern about the ceremony being the right time for that due to the complexity of his findings.
Gee. Compare that to THIS.
The universe is 13.73 billion years old, give or take 120 million years, astronomers said last week.
That age, based on precision measurements of the oldest light in the universe, agrees with results announced in 2006. Two additional years of data from a NASA satellite known as the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe have narrowed the uncertainty by tens of millions of years.
“Everything is tightening up and giving us better and better precision all the time,” said Charles L. Bennett, a professor of physics and astronomy at Johns Hopkins University and the leader of the group analyzing the data. “It’s actually significantly better than previous results. There is all kinds of richness in the data.”
P.S. In case you're interested in reading about Noah's Ark hoaxes.
First, you need to understand that this is the same team that claimed to have a piece of petrified wood, assumed to be part of Noah’s ark, taken from Mt. Ararat two years ago:
After the 2008 press release, Dr. Patton and another friend of mine, Dr. Don Shockey (another long-time Noah’s ark researcher and Ararat explorer) flew to Hong Kong to meet with the Chinese team to discuss their findings, and see if they could possibly collaborate on research.
It very quickly became apparent that the “petrified wood” was simply volcanic rock, and not petrified wood at all. An honest mistake, but unfortunately, this particular piece of “wood” has resurfaced with the media hub-bub of this past week. This “petrified wood” was not the sample that was carbon dated, mentioned in this recent press release (more on that in a minute).
The person who “found” the site is a Turkish man by the name of Parasut, who has already been known to con ark researchers in the past, and it would appear that this particular case is no different. Parasut has been the “guide” for the Hong Kong team.
In 2008, Dr. Price and Dr. Patton joined the Hong Kong team for an expedition to the alleged site of Noah’s ark. After a month of waiting, with Parasut continually drunk, the expedition never happened, and a lot of money was lost. Not to mention, this is an incredibly dangerous area all-around. People die on these expeditions – regularly.
Randall Price is a professor at Liberty University and he was involved with this expedition. He explains the “discovery” as the result of a carefully orchestrated hoax.
I was the archaeologist with the Chinese expedition in the summer of 2008 and was given photos of what they now are reporting to be the inside of the Ark. I and my partners invested $100,000 in this expedition (described below) which they have retained, despite their promise and our requests to return it, since it was not used for the expedition. The information given below is my opinion based on what I have seen and heard (from others who claim to have been eyewitnesses or know the exact details).
To make a long story short: this is all reported to be a fake. The photos were reputed to have been taken off site near the Black Sea, but the film footage the Chinese now have was shot on location on Mt. Ararat. In the late summer of 2008 ten Kurdish workers hired by Parasut, the guide used by the Chinese, are said to have planted large wood beams taken from an old structure in the Black Sea area (where the photos were originally taken) at the Mt. Ararat site. In the winter of 2008 a Chinese climber taken by Parasut’s men to the site saw the wood, but couldn’t get inside because of the severe weather conditions. During the summer of 2009 more wood was planted inside a cave at the site. The Chinese team went in the late summer of 2009 (I was there at the time and knew about the hoax) and was shown the cave with the wood and made their film. As I said, I have the photos of the inside of the so-called Ark (that show cobwebs in the corners of rafters – something just not possible in these conditions) and our Kurdish partner in Dogubabyazit (the village at the foot of Mt. Ararat) has all of the facts about the location, the men who planted the wood, and even the truck that transported it.
My prediction is that this won’t be the last attempt to scam believers.
Problems with the Noah's Ark Flood theory
P.P.S. We're still waiting for Baugh to submit that Alvis Delk footprint to an actual SCIENCE organization for verification. Hah!
