The Archaeological Evidence of Noah's Flood

Overview

The author was completing his twenty-year systematic investigation of the archaeological evidence of a worldwide Flood when Hong Kong explorers announced their 2010 discovery on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey. Pottery found in what appears the remains of Noah’s Ark relate to a ceramic assemblage that archaeologists see originating on the plains of Ararat and from which the author traces a second worldwide dispersion of mankind.

Overview

The author was completing his twenty-year systematic investigation of the archaeological evidence of a worldwide Flood when Hong Kong explorers announced their 2010 discovery on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey. Pottery found in what appears the remains of Noah’s Ark relate to a ceramic assemblage that archaeologists see originating on the plains of Ararat and from which the author traces a second worldwide dispersion of mankind. Using forensic analysis, Williams had previously identified what are now understood as ancient religious burials as in fact resulting from a worldwide Flood, radiocarbon dated to about 2400BC. Should his findings withstand the intense scrutiny invited by the author, it will rewrite the history of the ancient world. Accordingly, the advancing edge of belief and learning must return to the biblical foundations that the West has rejected since the Enlightenment.

Meet the Author

Philip Ernest Williams has interspersed his career in technology with lengthy studies in the philosophy of science, the history of ideas, biblical studies, and the history of mankind. His book is the product of years of research following his discovery of population patterns in ancient Israel that met his three criteria as archaeological evidence of the Flood. Since his retirement in 1990 from the telecommunications software company he founded, the author has alternated his time researching archaeology and ancient history with the promotion of infrastructure development in poor nations and international community among Christians.
