It’s not as though we never came up against structured water before. A lot of what follows I siphoned from back issues of The North Texas Skeptic. I’m also going to pull some stuff from Wikipedia and other skeptical sources. Even some companies commercializing structured water.
I don’t know how far back we go with this curiosity, but more than one reference traces back to Paluxy River creationist Carl Baugh. Since before the time I joined up with the NTS in 1988, Baugh has been running a Creation Evidence Museum outside Glen Rose, Texas. The “museum” is located just outside the entrance to Dinosaur Valley State Park, where real dinosaur footprints are found in the rock bed of the Paluxy River. Baugh and other Young Earth Creationists (YEC) like to tell people the Earth is less than 10,000 years old, and human prints appear alongside dinosaur prints in the same Cretaceous rock formations.
A family trip to the park invited a stop at the “museum” to see what Carl Baugh had in store. See the story.
A big part of the YEC story involves the biblical flood of Noah. This was a real event to these people, and the “museum” had on that day a mural-panorama depicting the miraculous stages of the creation event, leading up to the world-wide flood. Here is what my notes from that visit reveal:
Day 1: Electrolysis by the spirit of God moving on the waters separates water into its components, oxygen and hydrogen.
Day 2: Oxygen and hydrogen crystallize into a spherical “canopy” around the Earth. The canopy glows a magenta color under sunlight [producing a light that is very beneficial to things living on the planet].
Day 3: Robert Gentry has previously demonstrated that granite was created in about 0.164 second. The evidence for this is the presence of pleochroic halos [which indicate the prior existence of short-lived radioactive isotopes in the stone at the time it was formed]. [Arthur Strahler discusses this subject in his excellent book Science and Earth History.]
Day 4: God stretched out the heavens. The fabric of the universe was stretched out in a manner which, according to Einstein’s equations and the equations of quantum mechanics, caused a few hours time to give the appearance of millions of years. Russell Humphreys, a Ph.D. physicist working at Sandia National Laboratory has published equations that demonstrate that if the dimensions of the universe were stretched in this manner, then millions of years in outer space would be equivalent to only thousands of years on Earth.
Day 5: There is still a pinkish glow on the Earth. The canopy 10 miles above the Earth’s surface has compressed the air to produce this effect. Also, the Earth’s electromagnetic energy is stronger and there is no UV radiation [because of the canopy] to cause free radical damage, allowing living organisms to express their optimal genetic information.
Day 6: The fabric of the universe continued to stretch out.
Hundreds of years later: From science we know that the thought processes of man in discord can affect nuclear decay. The discord and violence in man during this time would disrupt the nuclear reactions within the Earth, causing enormous heating and causing 70-mile-high fountains of water to burst through the granite crust and to penetrate and disrupt the canopy above the Earth. This would result in the rain that drowned all but Noah’s family and the animals on his ark. Also during this time the creator bowed the heavens, further stretching the fabric of the universe. [There is some mention of the Moon bringing the waters into resonance, but I could not follow the explanation.] Baugh also reminds the audience of the quantum interconnection between all parts of the universe. [See Roger Penrose for more on this.]
About 200 years after the flood was the Peleg episode during which the Earth expanded and divided. There was a 10% expansion in the Earth’s radius due to internal thermonuclear reactions. During the original creation and during the Peleg episode the continental land masses were thrust upon each other producing the ice ages, which lasted 100s of years instead of 1000s of years. This and the previous episode of thermonuclear expansion are confirmed by geophysics. Since the canopy was gone, the Earth’s electromagnetic field could not be contained, and it dissipated into space. Likewise a portion of the Earth’s gravitational attraction was lost, and there was [and has been since] a smaller oxygen ratio resulting in compromised and shorter-lived life forms. Also, the spring 1995 issue of Scientific American contains a report that in 1500 years all of the Earth’s electromagnetic field will be lost unless there is a return of the creator. [Since Scientific American did not publish a spring 1995 issue, I have had a hard time tracking down this reference.]
Finally, there will be in the future a millennial sphere in which people will live in utopia. Music will play in the heads of the inhabitants.
Carl Baugh’s weirdness does not stop with water. The magic of Noah’s Flood involves magical properties attributed to higher atmospheric pressure, present prior to The Flood:
Carl Baugh’s fascination with hyperbaric chambers has previously been mentioned. Located at the rear of the exhibition area is a working chamber, which museum operator Doyle Roberts says is kept at 13 psi above atmospheric pressure. It’s about 30 inches in diameter and 7 feet long with numerous viewing windows, and Baugh’s presentation states it is the world’s first hyperbaric biosphere. We are told that the lives of fruit flies have been extended, and the molecular structure of snakes has been altered; simply by placing them in the chamber. Additionally, near the chamber there is a large aquarium containing two full-grown piranhas, which are affected by the electromagnetic energy of the chamber. This chamber has gained the attention of scientists at NASA.
Baugh’s fascination with water carried on past that time, and somewhat four years later he was on talk radio discussing structured water:
Fred van Liew has sent us an audio tape from his radio program in early December. The program, which he hosted, was Your Health, Your Choice. Fred introduced his guest for the show, Dr. Carl Baugh, founder of the Creation Evidence Museum, which is just north of Glen Rose, Texas.
Fred congratulated his guest on his remarkable accomplishments in refuting the phony case for evolution. Dr. Baugh accepted the recognition and reminded listeners that he, too, once believed in evolution. He had been schooled in Darwinism, as had an entire generation of students. However, after years of research it has become apparent that evolution is baseless.
Dr. Baugh also told about his new book Why Do Men Believe Evolution Against All Odds, which contains over 200 technical references.
Baugh mentioned that he has been invited by NASA to lecture their scientists and engineers about Earth’s original ecosphere. He pointed out that they wanted independent scientific sources without reliance on religious beliefs.
He took some time to praise Fred van Liew’s research on energized water. Van Liew’s results are in agreement with the creation model (of which Baugh is a strong proponent).
Dr. Baugh went on to explain how all of this ties together. The famous German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss originally studied the Earth’s magnetic field about 200 years ago and found that it was decreasing. Actually it is not only decreasing, but it is varying up and down. It is pulsing. It pulses about eight cycles per second, and this action is what energizes water naturally.
The structure of water accounts for this effect. As shown in the diagram, a water molecule is two atoms of hydrogen bound to an atom of oxygen. The three atoms are not in line-the hydrogen atoms are separated by about 104.5 degrees (see Fig. 2). This angle can stretch and rebound, and this motion is what puts energy into the water.
The newsletter narrative continues:
In clouds the molecules are spiraling downward. When a water molecule passes through a thermal barrier this angle is flexed, and the water picks up energy from its environment. This is why clouds darken. Clouds get darker because the water is picking up energy.
One NASA engineer has told Baugh that they are producing mechanisms to energize water following Baugh’s principles. They have learned that today we are depleting ourselves of energy by constricting the spiraling of the molecules. Pipes, conduits, and channels constrict the natural flow of water and de-energize it. Water that has so been mistreated takes energy out of our bodies rather than adding it.
An engineer added energized water to his regular organic fertilizer and was able to produce corn eighteen feet tall with three ears per stalk. On another occasion at a university they added a few gallons of energized water to a sour well, and by the next morning the anaerobic bacteria in the well had been wiped out.
A rancher in West Texas once told Baugh that he now realizes why his cattle will drink rain water in muddy puddles rather than well water. The cattle feel more energy from drinking the energized rain water than from drinking the de-energized well water. Van Liew agreed, citing the fact that dogs drink out of puddles rather than their water dish. The rain water still contains all the information that God put in it.
Baugh explained that living systems today use only 3% of the information stored in their DNA. The other 97% is what geneticists call “junk” DNA. In reality, that 97% tells the active 3% how to respond. Energized water corrects this problem (presumably making more of the 97% active). By conducting experiments in gene splicing and recombination geneticists today are playing God, and they need to stop that and get back on track.
Toward the end of the program van Liew and Baugh took calls from listeners. Nancy posed the question of whether life on Earth would be more viable today had Adam and Eve never sinned.
Baugh was glad to reassure listeners that life today would be much better without the legacy of original sin. For example, originally there were no poisonous plants (they were all good to eat) and no poisonous snakes. Snake venom viewed with a scanning electron microscope is gnarled and unstructured. The sulfide bonds in snake venom produce the toxic agent under such conditions.
When ultraviolet light is eliminated and the atmospheric pressure is doubled (simulating conditions that existed before The Flood) the venom regains its structure. As always, he emphasized that he is having independent tests performed to confirm these findings.
Manfred Bauer is a scientist from Germany who is famous for his work in energizing water. Carl Baugh obtained a special mug from Bauer that energizes water. This mug is one of the products marketed by Essential Water & Air, the sponsor of the radio program. Baugh explained how the mug works. The mug’s lining contains energized water, and water poured into the mug is affected by the water in the lining. Water inside the mug is “singing” (spiraling) at a different spin-it is energized.
Baugh lent the mug to his friend Robert Summers, who used the energized water from it to resuscitate a wilting cilantro plant. The plant, which had been only an inch tall, blossomed and grew to seven inches tall within 24 hours.2
While they were on the topic of health Fred took time to emphasize that no drug makes us healthy. Modern drugs just eliminate symptoms. The root illness remains.
Baugh agreed. Given sufficient volume, energized water could turn around the environment, because it attracts oxygen. Fred was ecstatic at this revelation. Suddenly everything became clear to him. That’s why energized water is so beneficial.
Fred went on to lament modern medicine’s dreadful practice of removing cancerous organisms. To him this seems like just removing defective parts (as from a machine).
Also Carl Baugh brought listeners up to date on the status of the man tracks in the Paluxy River. Up to summer this year his workers had identified 303 dinosaur tracks. An additional 175 have since been added. They have also identified 70 human prints in the Cretaceous limestone. On July 3rd of 1997 they discovered a 9-3/4 inch human print along with some matching prints that make up a trail. This shows that people and dinosaurs lived contemporaneously, completely refuting the theory of evolution.
Fred was astounded that modern scientists still try to bury this significant evidence.
In closing, Baugh noted the new Web site for the Creation Evidence Museum. I’ve checked it out, and you should, too. It looks really great. The URL is
The company Essential Water & Air markets a number of useful devices for energizing water. I will just note two of them. The mug that was previously mentioned is available in 16 and 14-ounce sizes. They are being offered for $63.30 and $55.20 on special sale. Literature from the company indicates that you should place water in the mug for 60 seconds before transferring it to your preferred glass or dish.
Another product is the “whole house wand.” One model is about 22 inches long, and you attach it to your existing main water supply pipe to positively energize water to all taps in your house. The wand does not hook directly into the water system. You just strap it to a straight run of pipe with non-conducting tape. Two sizes are on special sale for $220.15 and $293.25. Supplies will probably not last long at these prices.
Along with the audio from the radio program Fred sent me his marketing video. His product line includes several models of reverse osmosis water purification systems for home and for travel. He also touts an electrostatic precipitator that provides a nice side benefit. Plants nearby have their immune systems improved. “Get healthy” he reminds us.

Some time later we had on board at one of our meetings one Greg Nichols. It all started with an email:
Date: Thu, 12 Feb 2004 00:19:27 -0600
From: “Greg Nichols” <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I have an interesting test for your group. Please call or e-mail for details.
Mckinney, Texas [phone number]
Summarizing, Nichols came to our meeting in February 2004. Our usual meeting place was snowed out, so we gathered in a nearby Taco Bell. Nichols had a business associate, Greg Willis, and they had a remarkable product:
What Mr. Nichols had to show us was a substance that, when applied to the outside of a beverage container, would improve the taste of the beverage inside.
Even we skeptics had to agree that this was, indeed, a paranormal claim. We eagerly looked forward to the opportunity to see this miracle performed under controlled conditions.
Oops! That was the sticker. We wanted, as we always do, to completely control the test in a manner that would eliminate testing bias or even, gasp, trickery.
For example, I have the opinion that if somebody sees a magical substance applied to the outside of his drink container, that person might, just might, perceive a difference in taste. I would naturally insist that the test involve tasters who were required to sip identical drinks from identical containers without knowing which container had been so treated.
We are sorry to report that our insistence on these minor details eventually led to a complete breakdown in the negotiations between us and Mr. Nichols (and his partner, Mr. Willis). To make a long story short, Nichols and Willis told us in no uncertain terms what we could do with our challenge. More specifically, we received a final e-mail:
Dear John,I guess I have to talk to you like you’re a moron. Either you and your buddies can’t read, won’t read, are stupid, ignorant, or all of the above.
When you get the information we want to us, we can talk. When you are ready to comply with our demands, requests and concerns about the fairness of your so-called “Challenge”, we can talk.
I won’t print the rest of their dispatch here, because they became rather rude a few sentences later. However, you can read all the e-mail exchange on the NTS Web site. Here is the URL:
This was not so much a structured water encounter as it was a brush with homeopathy. The claim put forth by Nichols and Willis was this was a homeopathic product. The idea being that water, the diluent, acquired a property from the active ingredient and retained this property, multiplying its power, under extreme dilution.
I’m still trying to figure out why I’m getting ads by email from concerns such as Aquaware. My email address, skeptic75287, should make it fairly clear I spend some time looking into hoaxes, such as this appears to be. Anyhow, here’s the most recent mail, received 16 August, and headed by two informative graphics:
I’m going to just reprint the entire email, including some additional graphics:

Oops! Before reprinting the entire email I failed to pick up on the copyright notice. Hopefully we won’t get sued.
Some may fault us for this bizarre ad for a product, especially a product wading waist deep in pseudo science. Aren’t we promoting pseudo science by publishing this stuff? My answer is “no.” It is assumed (possibly incorrectly) our readership is sufficiently alert (we are The North Texas Skeptics) to see this for what it is.
It’s interesting to dig deeper into some of the topics touched on in the foregoing. Here are a few worth noting:
- New Turbo Engine that allows you to program water in 13.1 seconds
Astounding! How long did it take to program water before? I’m guessing the new Turbo Engine has trampled on the previous record of 15.8 seconds. Modern technology is amazing.
- Program up to nine intents into a glass of water
Was the previous limit eight items?
- New Brilliant Beings Intents: Brilliant Minds, Dancers, Musicians, Painters, Sculptors, Writers, Actors, Athletes, Attractive, Business, Comedy, Directing and Healing
This is all very great, I suppose. But it leaves open the question: what is an “intent?”
Among the capabilities listed:
- Ability to affect change locally and remotely
I gather this is critical. You can’t always be near your water when you want to energize it.
- The first of its kind, Aquaware is a completely new kind of software – capable of blending quantum action, Sacred Geometry and specific algorithms to focus universal energy on assisting you with manifesting life-changing results!
Ah! Here’s the key. “Quantum action.” Yes. I completely forgot the spooky aspects of quantum mechanics. We all know magical results can be obtained through quantum mechanics. And don’t forget “Sacred Geometry.” Absolutely essential if you want “life-changing results.”
The secrets to the process are revealed:
- By first clearing your water of its memory, unwanted negative messages are erased, leaving a blank canvas upon which to reprogram water with your own vision of what you want to achieve.
Yes, we all know that water has memory, and that aspect has been studiously taken into consideration. These folks are amazing.
- Special frequency functions help to prepare you to receive the benefits of charged water, and then the water itself is quantum-programmed to provide your cells with a new blueprint – for the very best version of yourself.
Another game changer. “Special frequency functions” are incorporated. Then follows quantum programming. Outstanding!
It’s obvious we have been missing out on something for a good while, as Aquaware came to our attention but a few weeks ago. This is something The North Texas Skeptics is going to look into. Perhaps we should obtain a free trial of the software.
One thing that remains unclear to me: Just how does a computer program affect the properties of water? That’s not made clear in the ad. It’s possibly there is a transducer of some sort that needs to be plugged into a computer port. Wouldn’t it be grand if that were not necessary. How elegant if all that were necessary is to point the computer screen at the water and click on the ENERGIZE button.
Keep reading. We will have more in the future.
