Editorial Reviews

Rand Flem-Ath
"Allan and Delair do a brilliant job in revealing that researchers have barely touched the tip of the iceberg of events that shook the Earth around 9,577 B.C. . . . This book is an essential handbook to our ancient past: a brave multi-disciplinary approach that should be applauded."

    This book answered questions my college textbooks couldn't.

    Studying geology, natural Earth History and philosophy of science left me with some nagging doubts. This book gives answers that show the controversy in these fields that my Proffesors wouldn't. Weither you agree or disagree, you should at least see the evedience and decide for yourself.

    I believe this book provides compelling, intensively-researched

    I believe this book provides compelling, intensively-researched and referenced, evidence of a scientific explanation for the way Earth is at present, which also gives reasonable agreement with Biblical accounts.

    At least, it is a very interesting and intriguing dissertation, deserving thoughtful consideration.

    Evidence for the Deluge by total unbelievers

    This is in many respects a highly scholarly work. As long as the authors stick to factual evidence, they are right on. Their interpretation of scripture and ancient historical records however is in many ways mistaken. Nonetheless, they provide compelling evidence of a catastrophic past. If read with discernment, this book could certainly be benificial.
