Dr. Walter T. Brown received a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he was a National Science Foundation Fellow. He has taught college courses in physics, mathematics, and computer science. Brown is a retired full colonel (Air Force), West Point graduate, and former Army ranger and paratrooper. Assignments during his 21 years in the military included: Director of Benet Research, Development, and Engineering Laboratories in Albany, New York; tenured associate professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy; and Chief of Science and Technology Studies at the Air War College. Since retiring from the military in 1980, Dr. Brown has been the Director of the Center for Scientific Creation and has worked full time in research, writing, and speaking on origins.
For much of his life, Walt Brown was an evolutionist, but after many years of study, he became convinced of the scientific validity of creation and a global flood. Walt Brown's book titled In the Beginning is an exhaustive thesis detailing the hydroplate theory, which provides badly needed substantiation and the mechanisms responsible for the global flood. Applying the Hydroplate Theory to the problem of the Earth's radioactivity (Why is there lethal radioactivity in a world that God created as a paradise?), Walt Brown has published The Origin of Earth's Radioactivity as the only theory which actually accounts for the existence on Earth of radioactive decay.
Date for global flood
In May 2013, Dr. Brown's Center for Scientific Creation, along with the Creation Science Hall of Fame, separately announced that an astronomical date for the global flood had been calculated and fixed at 3344 BC. In June 2013, this date was revised to 3290 BC.
