50 Years Ago: The Book That Brought Noah’s Flood Back to News Headlines

Joel Kontinen

In 1959, when evolutionists celebrated the 100th anniversary of The Origin of Species, Sir Julian Huxley proclaimed that creationism was practically dead.

Sir Julian Huxley (1887-1975) was the grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley, who was known as Darwin’s bulldog.

Two years after Huxley’s prediction, doctors John Whitcomb and Henry Morris published their book The Genesis Flood that showed that the Flood of Noah’s day was not a myth but a real historical event.

Dr. Whitcomb was a theologian and Dr. Morris an expert in hydraulics. Whitcomb knew what the Bible said about the Flood and Morris understood what a lot of water could do.

Over 200, 000 copies of the book have been sold. It marked a real renaissance in biblical creationism.
