Ridiculous- Credulous Article about Carl Baugh's Unscientific Hyperbaric Chamber

11 March 2016 at 9:10:11 AM

Had to laugh at the article in the Glen Rose Reporter from March 8 2016 entitled "Creation Evidence Museum director disputes theory of evolution", referencing Carl Baugh. The article credulously starts, not by saying "According to Mr Baugh", but writes as if it is a given that the hyperbaric chamber is a scientifically proven method of knowing atmosphere conditions in the past. I wonder if Mr Baugh simply gave some info to the reporter and she dutifully wrote it down without any questions or research into its validity. Anyone reading this in the future will wonder why Glen Rose natives were so taken in. 

GLEN ROSE - The Creation Evidence Museum is in possession of a hyperbaric biosphere, which simulates the atmospheric conditions that existed before the worldwide Flood of Noah’s day. With the biosphere, Dr. Carl Baugh, the director of the museum, hopes to perform research experiments with plants, animals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects to replicate conditions that existed pre-flood.

First off, *Dr* Baugh? hah

Now back to that hyperbaric chamber "... which simulates the atmospheric conditions that existed before the ... Flood". Not "which is thought by Baugh to simulate", etc. There are zero facts to uphold Baugh's assertion and in fact, the opposite is 1. From Weird Texas

A 62-foot version of the biosphere is under construction in a facility next door. Reportedly, Baugh at one time figured that if increased O2 were good, then O3 would be even better, and he planned to live in the tube and secure a physiological advantage for himself. Apparently, someone informed the doctor that breathing pure ozone would kill him and he abandoned the experiment. Similar tests are still planned for lesser creatures.

Even Answers in Genesis, a creationist organization, casts a side eye at Baugh's credentials. (AIG website link)

Recently Carl Baugh has been given considerable television exposure by American tele-evangelist Kenneth Copeland, and also appeared on a widely viewed NBC TV program entitled "Mysterious Origins of Man." The Creation Science Foundation (CSF) has had many calls from people who have seen the shows and suspect that some things are not quite right about Baugh's teaching.

It is with heavy heart that we criticise others who are presenting themselves as spokesman for creationism, but who are doing damage to the cause of Christ through ill-founded claims.

Some of Carl Baugh's more outlandish claims, contained in his videotape Panorama of Creation, are as follows:


  • 1. Before the Flood, the earth was surrounded by hydrogen which was so cold it was metallic and this collapsed when God shouted. This is nonsense. It is impossible that such a surrounding cloud of hydrogen could ever be cold enough, especially in such proximity to the earth.
