Two diverse streams of research have both arrived at strikingly similar dates for the Flood - 3298 BC and 3290 BC. The difference is only 8 years! This is even more striking when one considers that the standard deviation for the 3290 BC date was 100 years.
One date is based on astronomical data. This date lends support for the Hydroplate Theory. The other is based on ancient documents.
Scientists recently discovered organic molecules in a sample from the Ryugu asteroid, collected by the Japanese Space Agency's Hayabusa2 spacecraft. A number of organics were found including niacin (vitamin B3) and uracil, one of the ingredients in RNA. Astronomers might be stunned, but discoveries like this were predicted years ago by Dr. Walt Brown. HPT asserts that asteroids and comets are made of debris that was ejected from the earth during the first days of the global flood. Bits of organic matter were dissolved in some of the water that jetted out into space.
