Product Description

Product Description

This book chronicles the author’s 20-year search of the archaeological remains from ancient times to determine whether Noah’s Flood was historical and, if so, why archaeologists have not seen it. He documents what he sees as advanced but violent civilizations that were brought to a sudden end by the third-millennium BC worldwide Flood. He finds evidence on all six inhabited continents of what his forensic analysis reveals as the remains of those drowned inside their homes and cities. These elaborate burials beneath archaeological tels, mounds, and megalithic structures such as Stonehenge, even the ancient graves by the Egyptian Pyramids, have long been interpreted as inspired by religion. The author claims that is impossible due to the lack of remains from settlements and cities of the living. He traces a new worldwide dispersion of man from the Middle Bronze Age that originates in the mountains of ancient Ararat around the biblical date of Noah’s Flood. The book’s Epilogue covers the recent discovery on Mount Ararat of what appears the remains of Noah’s Ark. Williams explains the Flood as hidden by the distorted framework from which prehistory has long been studied. The book surveys evidence supporting the event and discusses the traditional difficulties presented by Noah’s Flood and Ark: the spread of human languages; dramatic faunal and climate changes from the time of the Flood; and the source and destination of water sufficient to cover the earth’s mountains. His surprising answers are powerfully supported in this well-documented book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind Expander 19 Oct 2012
By Cygnet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
First, let me say that the title of this book is a misnomer. The archaeological evidence of the Flood is really covered specifically in only a few chapters of this entire work. Mr. Williams presented a great deal of seemingly irrelevant material in order for the reader to understand his arguments. Some of it was indeed necessary to support his thesis (meta data); some was marginally needed (background information that enhanced the understanding of the reader); and some of it is extracurricular (not about the Flood but about truths of Christianity in the modern world).

Secondly, let me say I found the book incredibly fascinating because it presents a logical, cohesive model different from any I have previously been exposed to. I have an appreciation for the development of such paradigms, whether I accept them as my own or not.

Thirdly, let me suggest that you may not want to read this book if you are not interested in hearing at length someone else's views. The strength of this writing lies in the extensive research that went into the work, the author's complete belief in what he is presenting, and the persuasiveness of his logic. His is a closed, comprehensive paradigm girded by faith, knowledge, and logic.

I read the entire book, every word, trying to understand the author's message from the depth at which it was written. It took a long time to work my way through it. To say the least, most people will find it controversial. Some people may find it as captivating as I did. Many people will not have the patience to read it in its entirety. Above all, it should not be taken at face value because it was not written at face value. It is the work of a man's soul. It cannot be taken lightly.

While everything in the book is theoretically directed as an argument for the veracity of the Flood stories, there is so much to learn and absorb from this tome. Mr. Williams pulls together information from a wide variety of sciences and presents it in a truly different and credible way. It was remarkable to see the facts in a new light that offers the opportunity to review and clarify them. This was the kind of book that on the surface I wanted to dislike, reject, and cast aside as not worth my time - but I could not. Although the author's agenda goes beyond just verifying the Flood, there was too much value within the work to "toss the baby out with the bathwater."

Just when my mind was ready to pounce upon some emotional remark that Mr. Williams was making, I would discover that I agreed with him on that particular point. Although his arguments are mostly based in logic, Mr. Williams' voice varies throughout the book: sometimes beautifully logical, sometimes ranting with emotion, sometimes actually stilted, and sometimes reverent and peaceful. The reader is able to see and experience his passion as well as his intelligence. I truly resonated with his discussion of time: qualitative, quantitative, and genetic. His suggestion that the many archaeological "burial" sites of ancient civilizations are actually the results of the Flood makes perfect sense. The need to become a people in spiritual ways that go beyond the idea of country or race (servant rather than ruling) is something of which I have no doubt. As descendants of Noah, we have a common ancestor and are truly one people.

While it is not possible for me to agree with everything Mr. Williams says, I applaud him nonetheless for the courage and fortitude of writing this book. It appears to be a very personal and elevating experience for him. I found reading the book opened my mind to greater possibilities both mental and spiritual.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mind shifting book 20 July 2012
By H.J. van der Klis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Philip Lee Williams, a former systems engineer and telecommunications entrepeneur, has deserved a lot of attention. After 20 years of systematic investigation in what began as a discovery of the migration patterns in ancient Israel Archaeological Evidence of Noah's Flood is the result. Instead of blindly following one or more of the ruling paradigms (Big Bang Theory, Young Earth Creationists, Science over Bible, etc.) he decided to set 3 criteria as archeological evidence of the Flood:
1. a sudden disappearance of the earth's population sometime earlier than the second millennium before Christ
2. a new dispersion of people from the Ancient Near East following this sudden depopulation and
3. a clear worldwide discontinuity of archeological culture that would necessarily mark the depopulation and new dispersion.
Williams devoted years of study of archeology in the light of the Bible and tells us about his voyage. He didn't anything for granted, and so you're challenged to review everything you learned and know about history, theology, linguistics. Take your time to read, it will take a while. In Part 1 he explains how the teachings of modern science conflict with the biblical account of the origins of man and the difficult challange that poses to a faith that is based upon historical truth.
In Part 2 the author points out how historical thinking is rooted in the Bible but how influential Christian theologians have shifted from teaching the historical revelations of the Scriptures to philosophical theology. He explains that the God of the philosophers is not the God of the Bible. In Part 3 he shows how Reformed theology gradually developed into the Deist view that challenged the literal words of the Bible. Modern understanding of history cut its biblical roots, causing many problems, such as the deep racism of the Enlightment. From the Nazi regime to the American Dream, deeply rooted in this earlier developments.
In Part 4 Williams reviews the most influential interpretations of the biblical Flood: Darwinist, Framework, Theistic Evolutionist, Progressive Creationist, Young Earth Creationist, Gap (Ruin & Restorationist), and of course the author himself have ideas on who (or who's not) the Creator, what's the age of the Earth, how the days in Genesis are interpreted, what's the age of Man and when the Flood did (or did never) take place. I won't reveal the details here, but I bet they're different from what you learned in school or church.
Williams also explains the method of searching for the Flood that he determined to follow. Part 5 covers his discoveries. Part 6 tackles some implications these findings have for related scientific and scholarly fields. There's much work left. Williams is humble enough to qualify himself as fallible. Any feedback is welcome. Part 7 discusses the relevance for our present world. Truth needs to get hold of us (again).
Williams was completing his twenty-year systematic investigation of the archaeological evidence of a worldwide Flood, when Hong Kong NAMI 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.
In my humble opinion Archaeological Evidence of Noah's Flood is a mind shifter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Philip Williams makes the case for Antediluvian archaeology 13 July 2012
By Michael S. Neutzling - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Tired of being spoon-fed as to the biblical narrative of Noah's flood? We already know that secular archaeologists deny Noah's flood even as the evidence for it screams at them every day. But do the Answers In Genesis/Creation Museum people and other evangelicals have it totally right? When they propose non-biblical concepts such as an original super continent or that all traces of the enormous global antediluvian civilization along with all recognizable landmarks have been forever buried out of sight and the reach of scientific inquiry, are they correct? Williams unflinchingly follows the biblical trail as it leads to the amazing truth of antediluvian archaeology. This ground-breaking book will open your eyes to biblical and scientific truth as it reaffirms the Genesis account as referenced repeatedly by Jesus Himself.
Is that really Noah's Ark that was discovered at 14,000 feet in 30 feet of glacial ice and volcanic rock on Mount Ararat in 2008? Is history better understood with a proper biblical understanding of antediluvian archaeology? Does Williams hit a long-overdue home run for biblical truth and true sicentific method in this important book? The answer is a resounding "Yes!" on all counts! A must read!
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely impressive research. 3 Mar 2013
By David Wilkerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Author P.E.Williams deserves much credit for the labor that has gone into this work. Whether or not one is a believer or a skeptic, Williams has taken great care to outline his sources, the distinct philosophy underlying each of several views on multiple subjects relating to the broad consideration of Earth's history. He masterfully pointed out the human propensity to hold to one's comfortable view, regardless of the evidence. One reviewer expressed that this book is more of a textbook than a quick read for the curious. It is. Still, every textbook has its genesis in somebody's curiosity, no? Years ago, a well-known psychologist praised Dr. Carl Sagan's book "The Dragons Of Eden" with particular applause for Sagan's extensive references. P.E. Williams has an extensive index of reference sources, categorized by subject, clearly revealing a researcher who hears all views weighing evidence on its merit and comparing honestly with that which is contrary. How honorable to do what we should. Thank you, Mister Williams, for exposing my mind to the knowledge! David R. Wilkerson
4.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed book 3 Oct 2012
By Irene's Christian Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is more of a textbook then a light read! The author writes his viewpoint of the existence of Noah's flood. It is a very detailed book that is loaded with information.

It took me awhile to get through this book. I was hoping it would be more of a few viewpoints briefly explained. It was however a very detailed book based on the viewpoints of the author. I did like how he supported his theories. I did like the style of his writing. He explained things very well. I do think this would make a good book for a college class to read while studying Creation or the Flood.

I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the idea of the book. I did however think it was too detailed. I do not think this book can be read in a couple sittings. You will need some time to digest all that is explained. I also felt it was rather boring at times.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
