Hah! So Carl Baugh and the miniature ark are apparently in the movie *Finding Noah*

16 October 2015 at 9:27:23 PM

After I saw that Carl Baugh (who is NOT a Dr)  was making a pitch the other day to let City of Glen Rose know he intends to get out of paying property taxes if he buys that vacant hotel in front of Comfort Inn, I've been looking at ridiculous things he's said and done (like spending big bucks on a *sea monster*.)   Or putting Tom Landry's statue in the museum.  OR how about that bogus Alvis Delk footprint? Saw that he made an appearance in some new movie about Noah's Ark. 

I wrote about his miniature Noah's Ark replica a few years ago after I saw a blurb about it in the local paper.  What is hilarious is that, in one of the reviews about this movie from a creationist organization called "Creation.com", they warn against believing Baugh. Apparently he is an outlier even among creationists.

Experts and ‘experts’

The film interviewed a number of people. Some of them have genuinely sound qualifications. E.g. there was a brief interview with Prof. Andy McIntosh, a sound biblical creationist who is eminent in his own scientific fields, and fights valiantly and well against ‘vanishing flood models’. Actually we are somewhat surprised that someone of his calibre would agree to be part of a frankly not very good film.

A lack of a biblical presentation or any Gospel at all was a glaring omission in the documentary.

There were small parts from genuine geologists and biblical scholars. Another genuine scholar who featured more was Dr Randall Price, Distinguished Research Professor and the Executive Director of the Center for Judaic Studies at Liberty University, one of the best creationist universities around.

However, there were also some Islamic scholars, and a number of people that the film’s website calls ‘Arkeologists’, clearly they were enthusiasts rather than scholars. And not surprisingly Carl Baugh made an appearance; we advise against using his material in our important ‘Don’t Use’ page. Still another interviewee was a ‘Mr X’; we fail to see how this helped the cause in the slightest.

So what does it say on the "Don't Use" page on creation.com, also called "arguments we think creationists shouldn't use"?

  • Many of Carl Baugh’s creation ‘evidences’. Sorry to say, we think that he’s well meaning but that he unfortunately uses a lot of material that is not sound scientifically. So we advise against relying on any ‘evidence’ he provides, unless supported by creationist organisations with reputations for Biblical and scientific rigour. Unfortunately, there are talented creationist speakers with reasonably orthodox understandings of Genesis who continue to promote some of the Wyatt and Baugh ‘evidences’ despite being approached on the matter.

 Hah. Pretty bad when even creationists revile Baugh as not credible.

This is from the Glen Rose Reporter newspaper, a puff piece about the movie

Baugh is seen in the documentary describing the to-scale replica of Noah’s Ark that is currently on display at the Creation Evidence Museum. He has spent over 40 years researching the subject and has even taken his own expedition to Mt. Ararat in the early 1990s.
The flood is a scientific fact. As we flew that site, we knew where to look because of access to ground penetrating radar,” he said in an interview with the Reporter. “I personally saw a huge beam of laminated wood.”

Answers in Genesis also has a page on the baloney about finding Noah's Ark.

Noticed in the March 8, 2016 issue of the Glen Rose Reporter that there was an article regarding the Creationism Museum receiving a bible hologram. Apparently the man, Frank DeFreitas,  who does holograms for a living and has a museum in PA gifted him the tiny hologram. What's interesting to me is that apparently near the end of January 2016, Carl Baugh took a piece of purported Noah's ark wood to this man to make a hologram. Was it actually *ark* wood? 

Is this a cut and dry case of finding Noah's Ark? Well, it certainly has its detractors and, in all honesty, it appears that a few of the carbon-14 tests gave more recent dates than the flood (to perhaps 100 - 600 A.D.). There are several technical explanations put forth that suggest reasons for this supposed inaccurate carbon 14 dating result. I am not going to get involved with the pros and cons of carbon-14 dating, of which I know next to nothing compared to others. My field is laser holography. However, to be fair, there were several more traditional testing methods that DID date the wood to the time of the flood (approximately 5,000 years ago). This includes a few additional carbon-14 tests. Who is right? No one can say at this point in time. Discrepancies such as dates will always be present in the early stages of any ancient research and exploration. ....the debate with Noah's Ark remains ongoing and, after all, I am a holographer, not an explorer.
